Ben on the move!

Benjamin has been moving a lot lately- not quite walking, but not staying in one place! He’s also not-quite crawling, but he gets around. He’s cruising all over the living room furniture and is pretty sure he doesn’t need to hold on.

Here he is with his push-toy. Joe wants me to note that we took this video late in the day, after he had been walking around quite a bit, and this is not the best example of his almost-solo walking prowess. Also, keep an eye on Cayman. He’s pretty funny.

For you photo-hungry folks, here’s a sampling of some of this fall. Halloween might get pre-empted by Hurricane Sandy, but luckily Ben already got to try out his costume at the Bay Ridge Raggamuffin Parade. He had a lot of fun walking with Jack, Jerome and their families! Hopefully we’ll get to go to the Jackson Heights parade on Wednesday!

  1. Yay, and update! I’ve been thinking about your little guy. He’ll be chasing the dog in no time. One of you should probably tell Cayman to find a very good hiding spot, he’ll need it soon. Great work Ben, walking is tough stuff.

  2. Thanks Mia – we have been grossly negligent with the blog lately- will need to post more often. He had been progressing pretty slowly, but it seems he’s picking up the speed lately, so more to share 🙂

    • I hear that. Our first took extra time to do everything, but it will happen. I still need to remind myself how early our first was and to give him time. You’ll just be that much more excited with each milestone. He looks so strong and happy as always.

  3. All that training and they go and cancel the NY Marathon.
