Life of Benji – First Thanksgiving

October 25th, 2010

It is Thanksgiving and Benji just fell asleep in my lap.  Benji has definitely become way more active around the house in comparison to a month ago.  He’s still very clingy when I first come home from work but during the day when he’s spending time with my wife or when we’re watching TV together later on in the evening, Benji always loves to run around the house.    Yes, he basically gets into everything so we constantly have to keep an eye on him.  One of his favorite games is to kick everything off the living room table.  Once everything is on the ground, he seems happy.  I wonder if that is a habit that we’ll be able to break.

Life of Benji – Exploring

Until today Benji would always stay within 2 feet of me or my wife.  For the first time ever Benji decided it was time to start checking out the rest of our bedroom.  My computer is up in our bedroom so every night and weekend Benji and I spent most of our time together there.  In most cases he just spends his time on my lap and jump back and forward from my lap to the chair next to me where he has a little basket with toys in it.  Today Benji actually jump on the floor several times to check out the rest of his surroundings.  He’s still trying to play with the cats but in most cases the cats just leave after a while or give him a slap on the wrist.  They’re pretty gentle about it but at that time Benji knows it’s time to leave them alone.
