Our little Benjamin is now 5 months (plus 2 weeks and 1 day) old. He is really growing up fast! Although he still looks quite a bit like Ella, he is quickly adapting Harrison's um... 'vibrant' personality.
This month he learned a few new skills including (but not limited to) the following:
-rolling back to front
-Ba and Ma noises
-turning the music on in his bouncy chair
Basically, he's extremely smart and talented.
Ella's obsession with Benny has grown now that he can do some more interesting things. She always likes to be holding his hands, sitting beside him and trying to make him laugh. She also MUST sit beside him for all meals - this is non-negotiable. I was kind of hoping she would offer to feed him one of these days, but that hasn't happened yet.
Some nights Benjamin even cuddles with Ella to hear a bedtime story and song.
I have no idea how much he weighs or how long he is, but I'm guessing we'll get some new numbers at his 6 month doctor's appointment in a couple weeks.
As for me, I still have about 10 pounds of baby weight left to lose which is annoying, but what are you gonna do...[uh, how about stop eating a chocolate bar everyday]. I'm pretty confident it will come off once the 25 feet of snow outside has melted and we can get outside a little more easily.
And that's your 5-month update!
Thanks for reading :D
