He loves to watch his sister, and he eagerly takes in, and more often than not becomes involved in all of his surroundings in every sense of the word. To "get one" with his new found world, he's started to climb, and boy, has he ever taken on some major obstacles!
He climbs, from one to another, from little to big. Small chairs, large chairs, bigger tables - he is king of the mountain! Just today, he successfully straddled the rocking horse, stood up, began to rock, standing, with both feet on the horses back, and he carefully lifted his hands into the air off of the horses mane as if to balance - which is exactly what he was doing! Balancing, with a look of pure joy and bewilderment twinkling in his eye. Little stunt devil man he is! He's an absolute adventurer, thrill-seeker, our little wild man, who will most definitely be keeping our lives exciting for a real long time to come. We love his adventuresome spirit and feed off of his energy.
Ben's first birthday was small and sweet, celebrated at home, with just the three of us to soak him all in. We enjoyed a day full of trains, balloons, good food, and good company. Uncle Jason joined us for Ben's spaghetti supper that evening that ended with Benjamin's first ever chocolate cupcake. He destroyed it, eating only a little, all while smiling and laughing and covering his face with the rest. We had a wonderful time celebrating Benjamin Scott, and he certainly enjoyed the doting. He is such a happy, energetic, and mischievous little guy, and we love his little ways. Looking forward to a busy, wonderful new year of more firsts and more adventure. Cheers to sweet and oh so loveable Benjamin Lee. We love you, sweet boy!!
