What We Learned: 16 Months


I had contemplated turning these monthly installments into a more irregular feature.  I figured Shrimp and Kings readers were perhaps already updated enough that they were more than unnecessary. Hurrah he cries when he is sad!  Hurrah, he has entered the oral stage!  Hurrah, Bennett eats peaches!  Hurrah, his bowels are regular!  But, then his sixteen month birthday only happens once in a lifetime, and leap day only happens once every four years, and I was forced to post two monthly updates last March.  So, now you're stuck with a sixteen month update and my decision to keep up with Bennett's learning for the forseeable future.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. 

Bennett learned the value of play dough.

We learned that Bennett is afraid of flying bugs.

Bennett learned his love for things that go.  Helicopter.  Airplane.  Truck.

We learned that he may be afraid of bugs, but he is still all boy.

Bennett learned to clean up after himself.

We learned that garbage cans make for great toys.

Bennett learned the love of pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, and brownies.

We learned that sugar highs are no laughing matter.

Bennett learned that the world is full of many words.

We learned it is entirely possible to double your vocabulary in one weekend.

Bennett learned he is afraid of scissors.

We learned that no amount of hair in the eyes is worth the trauma of a trip to the salon. 

And if you think this is bad, you should see him in a smock.
