Summer Reading

I signed Ben up for the summer reading program at our local library. We go in there several times a week. They have a children's reading room full of toys where Ben likes to crawl around, and they have a nice selection of picture books and even board books. Ben is currently enjoying Mo, Baa, La La La by Sandra Boynton because his daddy makes hilarious animal sounds.

We met friends for a short hike at Bradbury Mountain State Park today. Ben thought the hike was okay, but he strongly preferred the playground near the trailhead.

Size XL

Here's Ben playing dress-up in his daddy's shirt. He's sporting his mischievous grin (in this photo and in the photos from my previous post); doesn't he look like a tricksey little elf?

Pokey Tongue

I keep trying to get a good shot of Ben with his tongue poking out, but he hasn't been cooperating. Finally, our friend AB captured several at church on Sunday. (Also caught on film: Ickie wearing jeans to church. For shame, Southern Boy.)

Standing with a Bit of Assistance

Ben likes standing if he's holding on to something (and if Mom or Dad is nearby to catch him when his strong, chubby legs finally get tired). Here he is proudly standing in his crib, in a very cheerful mood upon awaking from a nap.

I also thought this one was funny. He's annoyed with me for distracting him while he's trying to watch a Baby Einstein video (I check them out from the library now and then).

Hands and Knees

I haven't had much time to post or email or anything else lately because I have been chasing my crawler around the house!
