It is amazing how she is just perks up when he enters the room. Since he likes to show his affection by licking, we try to control that some towards Bennett. We don't mind it when he licks her feet though, and neither does she!
Spencer has always been a little timid, and he wasn't quite sure of Bennett when she first arrived. However, over the past few months, he has really started to warm up to her. In fact, he even let her sit on his back, as seen in this photo. It really is quite sweet the way she giggles at him, and he comes up and sniffs her whenever she makes a noise.
Her noises are getting more defined too...she recently started saying (gulp) "dada." I know she doesn't know what she is saying, but it is still cute nonetheless! However, this small milestone has made me even more determined to teach her "mama" and Myra is practicing "mimi" with her. Though Steve won the contest of her saying his name first, let's see who wins the contest of her really understanding what she says when she sees us! The game is on!
