Five months already. That is almost half a year. Benjamin is growing so quickly! He is so awesome.
He has had lots going on in his little life over this last month. He started eating solid food - well, I wouldn't necessarily call it "solid", let's just say it is something else besides milk. And it involves a spoon. He now rolls every kind of way, to the point where he wakes up facing opposite direction in his crib! He can reach his toes and has started discovering his hands (as of this morning!). He moves them in slow motion and stares at them mesmerized.
He makes all kinds of noises with his mouth. I am pretty sure he has said "agua".. twice. But still no mama or papa. He doesn't always take his pacie even when he is cranky and you try to force feed it to him. He sure has a little temperament and will let you know right away when he is ready to move on to the next activity. Or when he is done eating. Or when he has a burp. Or when he is tired of the car seat.
A big step for him this month is that he started school and he is doing so great! All his teachers love him - three of them are latin, so they speak to him in Spanish (win!). Another big accomplishment is that he is now sleeping through the night (for the most part.. and mainly on school nights, but hey, we'll take what we get).
He absolutely loves music - and with that, my singing! Maybe because I am his mother and he loves me unconditionally or maybe because he doesn't yet know the difference between good singing and cats dying. Speaking of singing, I think we might have been singing happy birthday on picture one! :)
