Most boys like trains and most boys also like cake. In this sense, Benson is not most boys. He wont eat cake or a billion other foods for that matter. He is BY FAR my pickiest eater. Its super stressful. I could fill a blog post of foods he refuses to even try including every. single. vegetable. So instead of make him a cake for his birthday I did a pizookie with ice cream. He does like cookies and he does like ice cream. It had M&M's, browned butter, and was baked in a cast iron skillet. It was amazing!!! Benson however, wouldn't take a single bite. He was ticked off that his ice cream was touching his cookie. Once they were separated, he ate the ice cream but not the cookie. Oh, and I also made him a home made pizza for his birthday since it's his favorite food...well pizza is at least. Wouldn't even taste my delicious home made version. At least 5 of the 6 of us enjoyed it all!
|He blew out the candles all by himself|
He loves masks but not dress ups, Mariah's baby doll, his blankie, and the trampoline. Isn't interested much in books and isn't interested at all in TV. Loves nursery rhyme songs and Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam. Speaking of sunbeams, this is the first week he's gone to nursery without a fuss. It was amazing! He also loves the park, particularly the swings and slides and is my first water baby with both the bath and pool. He's only in the 18% for weight but 52% for height and is talking more each day. Yesterday he counted to 10 for the first time. He gets the award for sleeping in the latest each day (which is usually 7:00) and for that, he usually gets my "favorite child" award...until meal time when he wont eat, then it swaps to a different kid. He's the best little buddy and pretty easy going unless someone has taken his toy.
