November was a big month around these parts. We have some accomplishments to recognize.
That's right, teeth. Plural. We have two. And they are sharp. Some "toys" we thought were baby-proof now have tiny chunks missing from them.
Benton is officially crawling like a real baby. He still sneaks in an occasional army crawl, but for the most part his knees are getting put to good use now.
Was not expecting this so soon. The kid pulls himself up everywhere. His bed, the couch, the coffee table, the ottoman, the bath tub and walls. And after he stands, he lets go with one hand, just to be sure we know he has no fear. Apparently, falls are not going to keep him down. He also walks along the couch if you hold one of his hands.
In his free time, he likes to clap, say "dada" (Pretty sure he doesn't know that's what he's saying. Not bitter.), climb one stair, eat graham crackers, not take naps, watch Handy Manny, read (and chew on) "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?", or have his ears cleaned out with baby Q-tips.
Little man had a great first Thanksgiving and was sufficiently spoiled by all. We went to Uncle Zach's house in Florida and then to Mimi and Bunk's house in Alabama. Such fun visits!
One more worthy note. Benton had his first visit to the always exciting Chuck E. Cheese. It was special. I think he's covered until he's 16 and can drive himself there.
