I get more one-on-one time with Benjamin than with Asher or Charlotte- every afternoon, when his siblings nap, Benjamin and I get to have our special time together.
He's always been a poor napper- he was the first to give up his morning nap, and now he's the first to give up napping altogether. He takes an afternoon nap 1 or 2 days a week, and for the most part, we've given up trying to get him to rest.

There are days where he is in a foul mood. He only wants "nuffin'" to eat, and he will lie on the floor and flail if you come too close. But he is quick to calm down. At meals, he'll inch his chair closer to ours until they touch, and sit next to us while we eat. Or even sit on Eric's lap to eat!

I love you, my sweet boy.
