Nicknames: Ben, Benny Bear, Benny Ben
Likes: He loves spending time on the play mat and the good ol’ living room rug. This month has brought a lot more “playing” time with Joey, usually with the trucks that are all over the house and it’s pretty adorable.
As far as foods go, Ben loves sweet potatoes, peas, bananas, and prunes!
Dislikes: Few dislikes but the big one this month was peaches. This boy is NOT a fan!
Milestones: Ben really got started on baby fooda this month and loves it.
Weight/Height: 17.5 lbs and 28 inches – this puts him at 50 percentile for weight and 91(!) for height.
Clothing Size: He’s officially in 9 month clothes and honestly, I might’ve waited a little too long to make the switch because it looks like he’ll be 12 months clothes in no time 🙈
Sleep: Getting better! His naps are much more regular now and he’s only waking up about once a night but I’m hoping we can cut this one out soon!
Random Tidbits: This boy loves his brother and I can tell he’ll be crawling and walking in no time just so he can keep up with him. He’s a better water than Joey ever was and while I love it, I’m already scared about what he’ll be like in his teens haha.
The funniest thing this month was actually at his 6-month check up when the doctor came in and said “6 month? Really, it isn’t 9 month?… (looks at both me and Lance) Well… You ARE both tall”. I just about died laughing!
