Well the 2nd child is not suffering from 2nd child syndrome this week. With Elizabeth in California, Ben has actually been getting a few pictures taken. Although a couple of these were taken while Elizabeth was here. . .I'd thought I would take this opportunity to let Ben shine.
You know - a spoon can be a tricky thing to manuever. As you can see here - Ben has not quite mastered the art. Although he tries, he finds his hands to be much more practical. He also does not get the point of a bowl. It is just as easy to eat it right off the tray.
Here is some time with the spoon - and then some time with the hands.
The above was an attempt at self feeding yogurt. We tend attempt these great learning opportunities on bath days.
Below is Ben after his bath. This is Ben with a fauxhawk (which only lasted for the time to snap a few pictures). I felt this hairstyle was best suited to go with the t-shirt that his Uncle Tev picked out for him. He refused to put down his snack cup - so I am forced to spell out what it says. "Lock Up Your Daughters" Being the ladies man and little flirt that he is, this is a funny shirt for him.
Here he is working the image a little.
And just to remind every one that he is just a sweet little boy - here is his cute and preppy picture.
