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 :-)

Our Handsome Man

The drool comin off the chin :-)

Having Fun with Aunt Katie

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!
