My Sweet Boy

Seth just told me about the most amazing things Benjamin said! For those of you that don't know him too well, or to update you on his vocabulary, he says about 20 words and only a few of them sound like they are suppose to sound. And he certainly doesn't make sentences or phrases. So when I came home from school around 2pm Benjamin was in his room napping. I got Maggie and we took off to run some errands. So when Benj woke up from his nap he was looking all around the house for her. Seth said he actually said, "where's baby?" as he shrugged his shoulders and hands out to the side. And that's not all! Seth played around with him and kept him looking for her and when Seth asked Benjamin, where is the baby? Then Benjamin said what sounded very clearly as, "I don't know". I was pretty excited to hear that story and that he can talk, just when it's super important. What a great brother!
He just finished his preschool class through the school district. He started going as soon as he turned 3 in Febuary and has been riding a bus all by himself ever since! There is also an aide that helps them get into all the car seats. He usually loves it, sometimes it was a little rough getting him out there by 6:45am! (He was the first one on, and the first one off)

I love this picture of Maggie eating his toes. As much as he pushes her around, she can really dish it back.

And another silly picture of Benj. This time the toilet seat is around his waist. And notice the elephant in half these pictures, it's his favorite toy.

Your kids are so cute! I love the story of Benj, how adorable. I also love the picture of him getting on the bus with his little backpack- he's growing up.

What a cute pic of you and Benjamin! It sounds like he is a very protective big brother! :) Did he go to all day preschool? That is so neat they had a bus for preschoolers! They would never do that here!!!

I do so miss my Benjamin. He taught me so much in Primary, and I wish I could see how much he has grown. He looks so big to me in the pics. I am glad that he is in preschool. I worked at a preschool this year & have thought of him every day.
