Ask Ben!

Noelle had asked my Mommy if there would be an "Ask Ben" section, so here it is! Feel free to ask me questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Of course, I have a busy schedule consisting of naps, feeding and pooping, so it may take time to get through them, depending on how many there are. But ask away, it will give me some good ideas on topics to talk to you all about.

I'll also keep a link to the "Ask Ben" section on the sidebar once this thread passes through so you all can ask questions whenever the fancy hits you!

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!

Technical Difficulties

Looks like you all can't comment. I'll try fixing this, but I'm only 2 months old, it might take a while.

update: It all works now! Yay Mommy! Her brain hasn't gotten fried from all this time off. She's AWESOME!

Who's the Boss? I Am!

Today I went on a field trip with Mommy and Papa to that place where Tita Claudine got married to that really pale guy who's scared of me. I guess I'm going to have a party there, too. I sat in my stroller looking nice and innocent, sucking on my pacifier. The ladies in the office said I was really adorable and that I had a lot of hair. I have to admit, I'm really good at looking cute.

Afterwards, we went to Fuddruckers to eat. I was nice and quiet while they were ordering and waiting for their food. Since I was a good boy for the first part of our adventure, I made sure to start fussing and crying as soon as Mommy and Papa started eating, which caused them to eat really fast and say, "Aww, it's ok, we'll be done soon." Papa scarfed down his food, then held me, played with me, and gave me a bottle while Mommy finished her food. I like to give them a hard time while they eat. I want them to know who's boss!

Welcome to My World!

Hey there, everyone, I'm Benjamin, and welcome to my blog!

I sit around in my papasan all day and watch my mommy update her blog, and I thought to myself, "Hey, that can't be all that hard for me to do, I bet I can do that, too. That is, after I learn the English language, how to type, how to log onto Movable Type and when I stop pooping in my pants."

But thanks to the wonder that is the telepathic link that was created between me and my mommy in the womb, she knows my thoughts and is able to translate my facial grimaces and fart code so I can share my ideas and development with you. I'll talk about the milestones I've reached, the funny things I like to do, the places I've been, and a little bit of celebrity gossip and politics. Because I know you care.

So once again, WELCOME!

To start things off, here's a really handsome picture of me:

Feel free to download it and make it your desktop background. There's more where this came from - I'll be posting a lot of pics that you may not see on my mommy's blog. And when you're at work and your coworker passes by and says, "Oh my, what an adorable baby! What's his name?" you can say, "Benjamin! He's awesome!"
