Bennett the Uncooperative Baby

Ever since Bennett was born, I've been saying that I hoped he'd be a late walker. I was hoping to avoid the heavy-duty babyproofing till we moved, and I was also hoping that he wouldn't be able to climb the Christmas tree.

No such luck.

The little punk decided he could walk almost a month ago...well before Halloween. So much for waiting till after Christmas. At about 8 1/2 months, he was able to take 8 to 10 steps without any help/support. He do at least 15 or 20 now, but walking is still just a fun game for him, not his primary mode of transportation.

Mom and Dad are visiting us at the moment. The last time they were here was early September. In the two months since they last saw Bennett, he's gotten two teeth, learned how to crawl, and started walking. He's been a busy little kid. We're really proud of our little man--mostly because he's so sweet and happy and healthy and easy-going...I could probably do without all this over-achieving in the walking department. (But he really is cute, waddling around like a drunken Sumo wrestler!)

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures for this post. I need to upload a bunch from our camera. I promise to share them once I get that done.
