Oh, this boy. What a bundle. I mean, look at all the emotions from this 5 minute photo session. He sure keeps me on my toes. Literally… he does not let me sit down. Bennett has mastered rolling over from his tummy to his back and is extremely close to flipping from his back to his tummy. He absolutely adores looking at himself in the mirror. I doubt he knows it’s him in the reflection, it’s almost like he might think it’s a new friend. He is becoming a really good smiler! He still loves bath time and is still an avid breast milk only eater… from the source… no bottle. He is getting so big! We don’t have another pediatrician appointment for a month so I don’t know his exact stats, but my back and arms are telling me he is huge! ;)
We are starting to have some nice conversations with Bennett, which basically means a lot of cooing and drooling and eyebrow raising ha ha ha… He really loves talking to Daddy. Every day when Husband comes home from work, they sit and chat about anything and everything. B’s fine motor skills with his hands are becoming more and more coordinated. He can reach out and grab things with ease and he loves feeling our faces. It’s the sweetest thing! For entertainment, he enjoys anything with lights and music. He has to be stimulated at all times. It’s almost annoying how bored he gets of brand new toys! Ready to move on to the next… that’s his new motto.
His sleeping habits at the moment are hit or miss. Never consistent. One night he is sleeping 8 hours the next he is up every 3 hours ready to eat. When I’m being awaken in the middle of the night, it’s easy to think it’s the worst night of my life, but as soon as I see that sweet little face I appreciate these little moments alone with my baby boy. He is just so easy to love.
I cannot wait to see what the next month holds for us! You are the most exciting thing in my world and I love you so much my precious baby!
