Ben is getting more confident every day in his walking skills. He was just sitting down whenever I would let go of his hand, but more and more he'll take a few steps. He can also stand up from sitting on the floor without holding onto anything.
He loves pulling the toilet paper off the roll.
He loves pulling the books off the bookshelf.
He likes pushing things around. I've had to go looking for the laundry basket more than once.
He loves to be chased.
He doesn't like strangers.
He eats and then he eats some more. It seems like he is always hungry.
Is pretty good at entertaining himself.
He still doesn't really say much- that's not true- he jabbers and makes lots of funny noises but only he knows what he's saying.
He's learning the art of the "high five"
Sleeps great. Usually only one nap in the afternoon- but every once in a while we'll sneak in a short morning nap.
Still has four teeth- two top two bottom.
Ben's Stats from 2/16/16:
Weight: 19 lb 15 oz (27%)
Height: 28 in (2%)

I feel a little bit bad that we didn't have quite the shin-dig for Ben's birthday that we did for Caroline's. Hopefully there won't be any long-lasting ill effects from our unfair treatment, but February is just not as conducive to big parties.
We still had a pretty fun party with Ben's Utah cousins, including all the essentials-
cake, ice cream, and a few presents.
He really wasn't too into opening presents- so his cousins were happy to help.
Then he ditched the party and presents to go play with some of his favorite toys- the frying pan and the red dragon.
