Our baby is now 21 months old. And he, like our other kids, is a piece of work.
He spends his days causing as much trouble as possible, both because he’s curious and he likes the attention. Luckily, he is learning and I expect him to calm down like the other two kids. Megan was an especially busy toddler and Gavin was an especially defiant toddler, and I think they’ve turned into awesome kids. So I’m not worried about Bennis the Menace, as we call him. I’m just exhausted by him.
About five minutes after this picture was taken, he fell on his face at Piedmont Park.
Fortunately, it didn’t scab over until the following day. He seemed to fall mostly on his nose.
He’s definitely got a mind of his own.
In addition to being a rascal, Benjamin is quite the charmer. No matter the disaster he leaves in his wake, a “Love you, Mama”, “Thank you, Mama”, or big kiss will get him back in our good graces. And he knows exactly how to play it!
