SEVEN months!

SEVEN months is when you realize your house isn't babyproofed since they are starting to get around a bit more...these are a few of the pics Shannon took of Benjamin for his 6 month mark. I was just a little late getting his pics taken because he was sick a lot that month!

FIVE months!

Benjamin progressed very quickly from a baby content to lay in one spot on the floor to a baby that rolled to a mover and a shaker!! Once he got a taste for mobility and freedom, he toooook off!

Just a couple of my fave shots from 5 months!

FOUR months!

February was the month that Benjamin turned 4 months. BRRR! Cold winter months are not my favorite!

My birthday!
In the jumperoo! He loved jumping, just not for too long! His little cheeks were always red like that from the wind...Aquaphor, anyone?!!?!

Couldn't have asked for a happier baby considering this was the day he got shots!!!!

THREE Months!

THREE Months Old! He was sooooo chubby!

One of my faves! I can't believe this is the same baby that I have now!

A boy and his dog...even if the dog doesn't like babies!
This is just perfection to me!! Chub everywhere! Sweet smile!! And Christmas!!
This taken on Jan. 2nd, Benjamin's actual 3 month birthday, shows that we celebrated with popcorn and a movie! He really didn't eat any popcorn(in case anyone was worried about that), but he had fun!!

TWO Months!

Benjamin turned 2 months on December was so fun having a little guy at that time of year! I had him in something Christmas all the time! He was sooo chubby, I had to start letting him wear his 1st Christmas outfit early! I don't know if this reminiscent blogging is such a good idea, I think I want another baby!! LOL!

One Month

From Joel & Cynetta & our two sweet boys, Noah & Benjamin

When I look at this, I can't even believe he was the same baby! He weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs at just one month old! We know this because we spent a couple of weeks at the Dr. trying to figure out what was wrong. All day long he was the happiest baby, but come 5am he was fussy even after eating and would only sleep on our chest upright in a chair. I didn't think it could be reflux considering he rarely ever spit up that 1st month, but I soon realized that he only ever laid flat at night so by 5am the reflux was in full force and he was miserable...not something you want for your baby! Once medicated, he started sleeping 10-12 uninterupted hours at night! WOOOHOOO!
The outfit he is wearing in this picture was his going home outfit! He barely fit it by one month! Being born in the fall which is my favorite season, we had lots of fun with cute fall outfits, pumpkin patch, hayride, and costumes. I am SOOOO excited for this fall and the pumpkin patch and hayride and watching him experience it again, this time as a 1 year old! Joel and I are so incredibly blessed by God! We love our 2 healthy boys sooo much and wouldn't trade anything in life for what God has given us!

I am finally making a debut return to blogger and thought it fitting to post Benjamin's newborn pictures as my first post back. Over the next couple weeks leading up to his 1st birthday, I will be posting about his life each month up to now. I hope you will stay tuned for more!

Minutes old...wondering what happened and whose idea it was to take him from that cozy warm dark environment into this cold bright not so cozy new world!

All wrapped up and snuggling with that's more like it!

This was taken just about an hour after delivery! Being up all night in labor makes for a rough looking, but HAPPY mama!
