and while gabe is starting to get into things, ben is finally able to articulate what he is wanting. he's so great to see the little wheels in head spinning as he tries to tell you what he wants. he's also become a great helper & cleaner. he loves cleaning up-even when it's not time to. :) he's really following directions and listening well. he's becoming such a big kid. i find myself just wanting to hold & snuggle him more these days. i know his baby-ness is fading quickly. his imagination is coming to life. i love to hear him tell me stories, usually they are just recounted cartoon episodes, but he acts like he is part of the story. i love it! he loves to tell stories while we are in the car when he has my undivided attention. he's also started to use toys with his imagination. last week he was at his nana roo's and told her that this little white puppy was sad. he needed a paci. so ben took the puppy and put him in the pack n play with a paci and blankey and then said "much better". my sweet little guy. can't wait to see where his imagination takes us.
love these boys & our ever changing and continuing adventures we go on!
