With all the PCS madness, I completely failed at updating Ben’s monthly updates – yikes. But here’s to catching up!
Nicknames: Ben, Benny Bear, Benny Ben, Benja, Benifacio
Likes: Spending time on the baby gym / play mat, sitting in the boppy and watching brother play. Also enjoys being in a carrier – he usually gets comfy in there and then falls asleep
Dislikes: tummy time has been a consistent dislike for my boy. He tolerates it better not but before long he starts to push to roll over or flat out screams bloody murder until someone rolls him over. He also hates not seeing someone, he’s clingy like that haha
Milestones: We have had a few milestones these post months! First move -transatlantic move, no less! He has mastered rolling over and holding his head, currectly working on sitting up unaided.
Weight/Height: As of his 4-month well-baby check up he is 16lbs and 25.5 inches!
Clothing Size: He’s wearing 6 months but very quickly outgrowing it! He’ll be in 9 month clothes in no time!
Sleep: Veeeery sketchy since the move. He mostly sleeps through the night with the occasional middle of the night wake up, but his naps are pretty inconsistent – working on that! And I think we’re going through some sleep regression right now because this week has been ROUGH. As in, he’s been sleeping worse than he did as a newborn. Yikes.
Random Tidbits: Ben continues to be a pretty chill baby. He loves watching Joey play and you can just see in his face that he’s itching to go over there and play with brother.
This boy was a champ during all the PCS madness – he slept through a lot of it, either in his carrier when the movers where at our home on both ends, or in his car seat. He was GREAT during the fly over as well, as in, he slept the entire time. Dude didn’t even know we flew across the Atlantic haha.
