Ben has changed so much in one year! His hair has grown a million times lighter! He has 5 teeth (with another one ready to poke through) and obviously he's bigger.
But Ben is not the only one who has changed in a year. Thankfully, Mommy has changed too!
Although my "Now" photo does not show my entire body (it's the most recent one I have-I'm usually the one behind the camera, not in front), you will have to take my word for it that I no longer look like the big whale that I do in my "Then" photo.
Our "Mommy and the Boys" moments have changed as well:
Here are some of the other accomplishments that Ben has had before his first birthday:
*He is walking, and running, and trying to do somersaults
*He can say the following words: "O-wah" (Owen), "Hi", "Ma/Mama", "n-n-n-n-no", "tay-tay" (thank you), and "wah" (what)
*He can feed himself with a fork, but still more successfully with his hands.
*He climbs up and down the stairs, and up and down the stairs, and up and....
*He sleeps through the night! (At least until 5:30).
*He drinks out of a sippy cup.
*He tries to put on his clothes.
*He can take off his diaper and be running around naked before you can say, "Skippyjon Jones"!
*He tries to sing "E-I-E-I-O"
*He flies Buzz and drives his cars around while saying, "Brrrrrroooom!"
All-in-all, I think he's doing pretty well! Now if I can only get him potty trained soon...
