I think that as kids grow they go from being tender loving babies to cute interesting toddlers. Benji is just ONE but makes me wonder what the next phase will be. Right now Benjamin is repeating sounds and expressions, and taking interest in books and videos. Just the other day he went to pick up a diaper from the diaper box, and indicated to his dad to change him. He knows what things are for like the remote is for the tv, the phone is to talk, garbage is for garbage, a hair clip is for your hair etc etc. He also knows how to play the drums, piano, and tambourine .. er bang on them. I have to remind him that you can't talk back to people because he likes to point his little finger at you, and yell something. Unacceptable Mr. Benji.
He is also known to be an professional dancer, and by that I mean he dances at any sound with a beat. AND he has rhythm, if I may add. I don't know if many one year old's are like this, but I think he is def one of the smartest.
One of the things he loves the most is watching a video of himself, and/or looking in the mirror. I hope this doesn't mean he will be conceited when he older :O
