What a difference a week makes!

Watching Ben over the past week I feel like I have been given a chance to look at the world through a new set of eyes.  Ben has started to really take notice of his environment and wants to constantly interact with everyone and everything in it.  He is no longer happy to merely stare at things and take them in.  He now stares at them, takes them in and starts talking about them in his own very meaningful (and very cute-sounding) baby language.  He has found his voice and it's clear he wants everyone to know his opinion on all the fantastic and exciting new things in his world.

We've also been having lots of fun in our rolling over and crawling attempts which seem to have come on so much in a week.  It made me laugh yesterday when during a pretty impressive crawling attempt he caught sight of himself in the mirror and started shouting and smiling, checking himself out and I swear he even did a 'Joey-from-friends style' wink.

My highlight of the week though happened on Sunday night.  Ben was in my arms and suddenly grabbed my hair, pulled me into him and gave me a big sloppy kiss on the lips... now that's something I will never forget!
