Big Foot & other Ben-isms

Random thoughts, all of these, but I haven't Blogged much lately, so here goes:

  • Big Foot Ben started out the summer in size 4-1/2 shoes, and as of yesterday he's a size 8. Please let up Kiddo, your shoes are costing more than mine!

  • Jibber Jabber. Baby talk is big on Ben's daily to-do list. I have no idea what he's saying, but most of it is said with conviction. I love the way it sounds . . .

  • SO SHY! I walked into the pet store the other the day, and the minute the lady behind the counter said hello to Ben, his chin hit his chest, he closed his eyes and went into "Shut Down Mode". He does this wherever we go, and the only response I can get from him is to hold his arms up to be held. Greg and I were both shy as children, and I love it that Ben still feels safe in my arms.

  • Bye-bye is code for I'm done with that now, you can go away, or turn off the TV.

  • BAD DOG. Ellie, my (formerly) sweet shih tzu, bit Ben the other night. I'm still secretly furious with her. Ben's feelings were so hurt, and I can't say that I blame him.

  • Rainy day. We had a delicious rainy afternoon on Monday, and Ben hung out by the front window (on the dog bed) for about an hour. He just drank his smoothie, talked to me on occasion, and watched the rain. I was shocked that he stayed in one place for so long.

  1. I bet those new shoes seem huge to you. Carlee just grew to be a size 10 and her foot seems so big to me. I'm glad to be in a new size with new shoe choices. We had to literally go and buy three new pair b/c she jumped from a size 7 1/2 to a 10. These little ones are not so little anymore. Love ya!
