Month 6

Half a year already! Six months ago this morning, we were gifted a tiny little human. Six months is such a short time to develop and grow as much as Benjamin has developed and grown...

He is becoming an awesome eater! He loves all the foods he's had so far... avocado, sweet potato, squash, potato, apple, bananas, pear and rice cereal! We had a week or so of stomach issues, so we had to do the apple, cereal and banana diet for a few days until his stomach got it together, but we are back to normal now. We have been so lucky that he has had no issues with transitioning to more full-time bottles or to formula. He eats everything in whatever vessel is delivered to him.

He is starting to recognize his name! He also recognizes his bottle and opens his mouth as soon as he catches glimpse of it. Even if they are clean bottles on the drying rack... They teach him sign language at school, so we try to carry that over at home. Slowly he is starting to learn "milk" and "more". It is amazing how his little brain is constantly working and learning.

He grabs his feet and rolls... the other day he took his sock off and chewed it up until it was soaked.

He has been sleeping through the night more consistently. And he has been sleeping in his room like a big boy. No more sleeping in the room with mom and dad. He loves his crib! When he wakes up (for the most part) he plays all by himself until either he starts screaming or we come grab him.

He is the sweetest little human we know. Each day we are more and more in love with him.
