17 Days of Benny – Day 11

Day 11 – Month 11

So many things happened in Benny’s 11th month!  He crawled, stood and walked-all in one day!  Leave it to him to pull a fast one on us.  He went from creeping to fully mobile overnight.  The kid was a handful and I was starting to realize that he was going to be so much more work than Darcy as a toddler.

Darcy was definitely less willing to try new things like climbing, walking, etc.  She was always more concerned with the environment around her.  Benny on the other hand was ready to run out and conquer the world.  The kid was a beast with an outgoing personality, ready to do everything his big sister was doing.  Yet, he was so loving and snuggly.

We celebrated Benny’s first Easter when he was 11 months old too.  He had an ear infection and was miserable, and teeth popping in everywhere, but entertained by his big sister and older cousins.  It was a great day.
