17 Days of Benny – Day 5

Day 5 – Month 5

By the time that Benny was 5 months old I was back at work while trying to juggle Parker’s company and the kids.  Things were stressful.  The seasons had just started to turn to Fall, what used to be my favorite time of the year.

Benny had started with Sandy part time and I was adjusting to our new schedule.  We visited the Topsfield Fair with the kids like we did every year, only this year I forgot to bring a hat for Benny, so he rocked a bandana all day long.  We really began to see the dudes personality come out about this time.  He was still super laid back, but all smiles and happiness.  He was interested in everything Darcy did.  At around 2 months Benny had figured out how to inch worm across the room on his back.  By 5 months he was rolling and inching all over the place.  He and Darcy was best buds at this point.  Life was good.
