I Have Found My Throne

My grandparents often call me "The Prince" since everyone pretty much waits on me and caters to my every whim. I'd like to consider myself "The King" because being a king is better than being a prince. I mean, Mommy can't be a king because she's a girl. Papa can't be a king because he's a doctor. So since there's a vacancy, I will gladly promote myself from Prince to King. King Benjamin.

And what kind of King would I be without a throne?

Mommy found the perfect one for me. Since I've already achieved neck control - actually, not to toot my own horn but I lost that floppy head action a long time ago, I can use my new chair. It's called a Bumbo, and it's a big foam chair that is made in South Africa. It's awesome! It's won a whole bunch of awards and it's on a whole bunch of "best" lists. Mommy did some research on it and rarely found anyone that was disappointed with it. One reader even said "It's the best thing to come out of South Africa since Charlize Theron!"

That's enough of an endorsement for me!

I love to sit in this chair! I can sit at the dinner table with Mommy and Papa, or on Papa's study table so I can help him study. It lets me sit upright so Mommy doesn't have to hold me up all the time. I can just chill out and enjoy the world from my tiny view.

Here's some pictures of my new best friend:

I'm trying out the seat for the first time

I like it! It makes me smile!

Here I am giving stock advice to Papa

With my new chair, I can see eye to eye with Papa...almost

I will now stop calling my seat the "Bumbo" and now christen it "The Benbo".

Because it's all about me!

Interesting chair Bennie. Kind of looks like a different kind of throne, one you'll learn about when you get older. Glad you're having fun with it.
