Bennett Michael {10 months}

Dear Bennett,


I am so behind again this month, but last Monday you turned 10 months old! Double digits!!! And speaking of you being so old, now that it's July, it's the very last month before your birthday month! Time, please stop!! I'm begging you!!


Height: 27" (4 %ile)
Weight: 17 pounds exactly (2 %ile)
Head circumference: 45 cm (29 %ile)

Clothes: You are still solidly in 9 month clothes. Some 12 month stuff works, but for the most part, it's too big on you and looks semi-ridiculous! You can still barely squeeze into 6 month pajamas and if I'm being honest, you should probably wear 9 month jammies from here on out! Your shoes are still too big for you and you love to pull them off anyway! You are still in size 2 diapers. 


Nicknames: Ben, Ben Ben, Little Bean, Bean Bag, Benny Ben, Benny Boo Boo, B, B Man, Big Guy, Little Peach, Sweetest Peach, Peanut, Peanut Butter, Lucas still calls you "Baby Bin-it!" while Ella prefers Benny or Ben Ben

Milestones: This month's big milestone was waving!!! You LOVE to wave at anything and everything now! If we say, "Bennett, can you wave?!" you instantly start waving! You also wave if anyone says "hi!" to you! And of course you love to wave for pictures. It's so fun. Your army crawling is getting better and better and you can go all over the place now! You still aren't crawling with your tummy off the floor; although you've tried, you quickly go back on your tummy! You just are more comfortable with the army crawling! You've started pulling up, but usually only get to a kneeling position as opposed to all the way up on your feet. You're a big fan of pulling up to gnaw on the coffee table or train table. You love to stand if someone is helping you!  We got out the walkers from the attic and you love to hold onto them but aren't quite sure about moving your feet and walking just yet. Diaper changes are becoming increasingly more difficult because you love to roll (and roll, and roll...) and grab anything and everything you see around you! You are still babbling without any association (Dadadadadada, Mamamamama, BBBBB, ggggg, etc.) so I haven't counted any official first words yet. Your new favorite sound to make (other than high pitched shrieks when you are excited!) is clicking your tongue on the roof of your mouth...you think you are quite the musician when you do that! :) 


Sleep: You are sleeping so so well! You have sleep a few times past 8 AM on the weekends!!! Most nights you sleep 12 hours easily. You take 2 naps a day, although morning naps are getting hard with all of the fun summer stuff your big siblings want to do! You sometimes skip that morning nap, but you do ok if that's the case! You just take a REALLY good afternoon nap that day!

Best Moment: Going to the beach with you TWICE! You love to splashy splash the water and eat the sand!!! We also had fun celebrating Daddy's birthday and Father's Day with you this year!


Worst Moment: This shouldn't even be a "bad" moment, but I am kind of over cleaning up all of your messes from meals! You are the messiest eater ever!! 

Likes: Sucking on your pointer and middle fingers, waving, ceiling fans, "Baby Shark" song, "The Wheels on the Bus," big brother's tractors, cords/chargers, eating paper/books, when we give you "raspberries" on your tummy, playing Peek-a-Boo, bath time (you love when the water splashes on your face!), when we clap in front of you, chasing the Roomba, big brother's car potty (so gross; we've had to move it away from you too many times!), sand. 


Dislikes: When we take a toy or something you are playing with away, "strange" people holding you when I'm right there 

Health: You've had a healthy month! :)

Eating: You are a bottomless pit! By far, my best eater in the house currently! You especially love cheese, eggs, blueberries, chicken and of course puffs! You pretty much eat whatever your big brother and sister are eating, just broken up into smaller pieces. You have absolutely no interest in nursing anymore, but I'm determined to get 2 more months out of you!! You still won't take a bottle and are skeptical about drinking water from a sippy cup. 


Ben Ben, we are SO lucky you're ours! I can't imagine life without you in it! You make us smile every single day and we are all so obsessed with our sweetest boy! Everyone loves you and it's easy to see why. You are precious!!! And so so chill (95% of the time)! Let's just make the next 2 months go by reallllllll slowly, ok?!
