Benjamin is Mr. Independent. As much as he loves his mommy and daddy he certainly likes to make it known that he can do things on his own. He loves to cuddle and be held but he definitely loves to be on his own too.
Not sure if you can tell in this picture but there is a bruise under his right eye. Jared took Benjamin out in the hall on Sunday because he was fussy. He took him into the Relief Society room to calm down. Another parent had a similar idea and Benjamin started watching this boy (JD) crawl around and walk around. As Jared told me Benjamin looked at him while standing and holding his hands and decided to let go and give walking a try. Jared dove for him and Benjamin hit his face on the chair and his head on the ground.
Mr. Independent strikes again! When I saw his cheek bruising I felt so bad for him but it's a part of life. His second bruise or incident now unless you count being born and his forehead was all bruised.
