Developing Story....

Tonight Bennett did an incredible thing. He stood up all by himself in the middle of the floor!!! We just started practicing this last week and he showed little interest in it. And then tonight while Jim and I were having a rather heated discussion about standing up to pee (it's a long story) we turned around to find Bennett standing up in the middle of the kitchen! He then proceeded to repeat this procedure 6 times in a row just to show us that it wasn't a fluke.

Exciting stuff big guy!!!

WOW! What a great new trick. I love it. He looks like he has been walking his whole life, like there is nothing to it. What a big boy. He is so handsome too!!! I love watching videos.

you are just the most awesome kid I have ever known! You are just so full of surprises and we never know what great thing you are going to do next! You are even able to blow now and you are so CUTE when you do. Your cheeks get big and round and then you let the air out. I could just kiss those cheeks all day long.
Well, folks, what can I say.
Lots of love, hugs and kisses
Grandma and Grandpa

YAY Bennett! Wow - he looks like a pro doing that! Isn't it fun the tricks they pull out when you least expect it.

I love that you caught it on video!

As Grandma and Grandpa said "That's our Boy!"

Everything Bennett does is awesome!!!

Wonders never cease and we hope that they never will!!

Where there is a will there is a way and Bennett certainly has a lot of determination to succeed at whatever he puts his mind to.

Great job, Bennett!!

Lots of love and kisses

Hooray for Bennett! I love when kids do something you don't expect--and don't they always do it when you're not looking? What's with that?

That was just great to watch! And I agree, Bennett's walking is amazing. And, yes, he IS oh so handsome! I hope he keeps on surprising you this way. He will, I know.

Now that is a look of pride, if ever I have seen one. Congratulations Bennett. I was also so pleased to see how stable and steady he was on his feet. This boy is going to surprise everyone - even mom and dad!
Lots of love,
Auntie Bonnie
