11 months

Bennett has really started to show how happy he can be this month.
My parents visiting really helped I think. They babysat him a lot while they were here so he was able to get over a lot of his separation anxiety. He doesn't feel like he has to be right next to me all the time now.

Here is the little munchkin taking a bath in the sink. 

He LOVES baths!
If we leave the bathroom door open he either goes straight to the bathtub and tries to dive in or to the toilet...ew.

Can you guess what he's looking at here that is making him so happy?

If you guessed Logan, you're right! :)
Many times Bennett will be in a grumpy mood and then Logan will come in the room and Bennett will immediately cheer up.

This month he learned to drink from my water bottle. 
He's now obsessed.

This month:
-We think he started saying "dog". But only when it is a real dog.
-He officially says "hi". I swear he's mimicked that sound forever.
-He barely started walking a little along furniture, but only a few steps at a time
-He still has 6 teeth--no new ones, but he's been working on one for a while now
-He waves, but not consistently
-He started smiling a lot more at strangers
-He started dancing
-He fake laughs
-He started standing in his crib when he wants out

Gulping down that water!

I'd say he's a mama's boy, but he sure does love Daddy too.

Not a great picture, but here's our 4 generation picture:

Bennett is soooo wiggly! This was a rare moment. I had never seen him do this before. Ever. 
Church is quite the adventure, but it always is with kids.

He also really started liking books this month. Before he would just try to grab them and eat them, but now he likes looking at them and turning the pages.

Having an almost 1-year-old makes me feel a little sad that he's grown so fast, but it's so fun to see him change. Love my little Bennett man!

I cannot believe he is almost one! Where in the world has the time gone?!?!? I love that he loves baths so much and I love that Logan makes him so happy. That is the best.

He is looking so much like Logan. I wonder if all your kids are going to look a like. They are both cuties. We are coming to Oregon or the month of December. It would be fun to meet up and let our kiddos play together.

I was thinking the same thing as Katie-- he looks so much like Logan! Two cuties!
