5 months old today!

Benjamin is 5 months old today! He is getting so big! He has gotten much more steady and will sit for a few seconds without support. He prefers standing to sitting however and has mommy and daddy thinking he may walk early. Kind of scary! He is laughing more and more too and has such a great personality. Yesterday he was cracking himself up by chewing on a cloth book that has crinkle paper inside it. I guess the sound it made when he bit on it made him laugh. We are just having so much fun with him these days!

Thanksgiving time

Well, Benjamin will be 5 months old this week. Time is passing far too quickly! We spent Thanksgiving with his birthmom Olana and had a great time! We are so thankful for her love for Benjamin and for the gift she has given us. God has been so good to us this year and we have much to be thankful for. Benjamin is such a blessing! Here are a few fun pictures for you to enjoy from our time spent with her.

Some fun pictures

Benjamin sporting the cowboy boots handmade for him by Sharon's cousin Katherine. Now we just need a cowboy hat and he will be a true Texan!

Benjamin had his first taste of "solid" food today. He had rice cereal that was so watered down I'm not sure it qualifies as solid. But he did pretty well with it considering it was his first experience. Mommy got lots of funny faces.

Mr. Camo man! This adorable outfit is from Benjamin's Great Aunt Connie.

Doctor Day

Well, Benjamin was 4 months old this past Tuesday. We can hardly believe how fast time has flown. He had his 4 month check up and weighed in at 16 lbs even and 25.75 inches. He is getting to be such a big boy. The doctor told me that we are getting into the time that should almost be illegal because it's so much fun. I totally agree! He is just getting more and more personality every day.
He is also getting more and more active. We have our changing station set up on the floor for lack of a better place to put it. Since we use cloth diapers and wipes, I just keep a bowl of water by the changing pad for wetting the wipes. This week, I set Benjamin in his room on the floor (across the room from the changing area) and went to change some laundry and a couple other quick things. When I came back to the room, I heard splashing. Benjamin had managed to scoot on his back to the changing area and had used his feet to tip the bowl of water. I just had to laugh. He was having a grand time! But I will be leaving the bowl empty on the floor from now on.
