Summer Fun

We have had so much fun this summer. I'm sorry that it's been so long since our last post. Benjamin has changed so much over the last month. He now weighs 15 pounds and is a nice healthy (aka chunky) baby :-) He holds his bottle, is eating rice cerial, and drooling constantly. His little laugh is so contageous and makes everyone in the room chuckle once he gets going. He puts anything and everything in his mouth. He's like a little parana whenever you hold him he'll chomp on your fingers until they're raw if you let him. The other day I saw a onsie that said "If it's in my mouth, it's mine". That's definitely a true statement when it comes to our Benjamin. We tried putting him in his own little swimming pool but he cried the whole time. We put warm water in it, but for some reason he didn't like the concept of taking a bath outside. We are having so much fun watching him and his reactions to new things. He's such a little ham with such a fun personality. We're so grateful to be parents and to have Benjamin in our lives :-)

I am so sorry to all that it has taken me this long to post some new pictures of our Benjamin. A lot has happened since this last summer. Benjamin is now ten months old. He has eight teeth with his ninth and tenth on the way. He knows and can say five words so far. He says "Mama, Dadda, BaBa (his bottle), Up", and "No" :-). The most current development is that he's learning to walk. He grabs on to anything or anyone to stand up and is just barely gaining the courage to try and walk away from things. He's doing great and we're guessing that he'll be doing it on his own in no time :-) Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Our Benjamin is growing so fast. It's exciting in one way, but at the same time we want it to go by slowly so we can savor all of his fun moments.  He is much more alert nowadays. He's learned to roll over, hold up his head, play with toys, and he's getting better at holding his bottle.  He loves bath time. Whenever you take him out of the tub he sticks out his bottom lip and starts crying. Another development is that whenever he's bored, he blows bubbles with his drool. But the icing on the cake is that he's finally sleeping through the night. It is SO nice. He's got more energy during the day and so does his Mommy and Daddy. We love our little man so much. He has such a fun personality. We can't wait for you all to see him at the end of the summer. We love all of you and hope you like the new pictures and video :-)

A Typical Day in the life of Ben

We've discovered that Ben is a very happy morning boy. As soon as he wakes up he's always smiles and giggles. He has also been eating non stop nowadays. He eats around eight ounces every hour and is getting chunkier and chunkier every day. He is doing so well with holding his head up too. When you hold him it's only on occasion that you have to help him with his neck. We are so in love with our little man and hope that you like the new pics :)

Ben taking his medicine, with it running down his cheek you can probably tell that he didn't like it :)

Benjamin will be two months old in two weeks. He is growing so fast. He is now wearing his three month old clothes, weighs eleven pounds, and has a double chin. He's giggling more often now and always talks to you when you hold him. We also picked up a rattle for him this last week and he actually plays with it now.  It is so much for us to watch him grow and see all the changes he's going through. He has also recently learned to make new facial expressions, all of which are really funny. He is such a little man. We love him so much.
