11 months old

First, a really cute peekaboo video. Whenever we play together in Benjamin's room, he walks over to his crib and pulls the blanket his Grandma Stewart made for him out between the bars. Then, this sort of cuteness ensues:

As you can see, he's also started making more attempts at communication. He now says "dad" to mean dad, but he also says it to mean mom, and when he's just babbling. He also makes the "th" noise you hear above anytime we mention teeth. When he is hungry, he blows his lips out in a sort of "boo." Then, of course, there is his usual "ah!" which means many things -- much like the communications of Sunny Baudelaire.

He loves turning lights off and on. Mostly on. And he absolutely adores pictures of himself. Here I've caught the two boys playing one of their favorite games: Dad takes a picture of Benjamin on his cell phone, and shows it to him. Repeat as desired. This particular time Benjamin also happens to have put on one of my Sunday dresses. :D
Benjamin also loves to ride on his daddy's shoulders:
Can you believe he is almost a year old? Speaking of which... if anyone out there wants to lend us an actual video camera for that historic event, it would be much appreciated. The digital camera is great, but lacks a certain something.

I love the hand holds: Dad's ears! It is so fun to have videos. We all want to tickle him under the chin.
