17 Days of Benny – Day 10

Day 10 – Month 10

By 10 months Benny was on the move!  He was creeping all over the floor, cruising around in his walker and pretty much becoming a challenge.  He was into everything!

Parker and I went away for a weekend ski trip with my company and Benny had his first baby-sitters, my cousin and her boyfriend.  My easy going, pretty go with the flow dude was not happy to be away from Mom or Dad for 2 days and gave my poor cousin a run for her money.  Darcy tried her best to help out, but Benny wasn’t having it.  That’s when I first started to notice what a Momma’s boy my little man was.

Where Darcy didn’t cuddle until around 2, Benny was a little snuggle bug and would settle down each night with his paci, blanket and book and relax his little body into mine as we read and cuddled.  When he was tired, he was more than happy to be in your arms calming down.  For someone with so much energy, he certainly calmed down and fell right asleep, just like Parker.

In the morning, when he would wake up, he would let us know.  Darcy was always happy to play with stuff in her crib and chat away for at least 45 minutes.  Benny would whine the second his eyes opened.  He would also just lay there and wait for you.  He finally started sitting up and pulling up in his crib around this time.  Still wasn’t happy to be alone and needed to be picked up or entertained by his big sister in his room.  It was amazing to us how different he and Darcy truly were.
