Ben at 6 Months

A half of a year has passed in the blink of an eye. Six short months ago, we brought home a little bump on a log (a cute one, mind you.) With each day that passes, we watch Ben turn into more and more of a little person… you moms know what I mean. He observes and interacts and expresses his little 6 month old opinions. It’s a lot of hard work, but he makes it so much fun!

Here is an update on the milestones we’ve passed since June:

Ben’s gone on a number of road trips, and two plane rides! He is a great traveler!

He started giving us smiles around 6 weeks.

He slept through the night (10pm – 6am) right at 12 weeks. Consequently, I started to feel human again!

Ben talks and coos and squeals. Our favorite is the “crazy cat sound”.

He loved the swing (0-5 months), then he hated the swing (just recently).
(This still cracks me up. Ben kept spastically knocking his paci from his mouth, then he would cry for it back. Brian thought this was a good way to solve that problem. I quickly vetoed the idea… after a picture, of course!)

He rolled over for the first time (front to back) in October.

He LOVES his Exersaucer… especially chomping on the seal.

He became a pro at rolling both ways at the beginning of December.

By the end of December, he was sitting up on his own!

He is just starting to eat solid foods. After each bite, he says “mmmm”. Precious.

Happy Half Birthday, Ben!

** Official stats - Ben was 17 pounds, 3 ounces and 26 1/2 inches long at his 6 month appointment. **
