Benjamin's new exer-saucer

Benjamin loves his new toy- it lets him STAND (his very favorite thing to do), turn around, and enjoy a variety of activities. It's nice because Sarah can now put him down occasionally!

A visit from Cousin Sarah

The two cousins seemed a bit more interested in eachother this time. Bryan and Jenilee spent the night with us on their way moving from Ohio to California.

Benjamin's Sitting Up!

Benjamin at the pumpkin patch, leaning on the giants.

We discovered knocking over block towers is a favorite past-time of his. It's helped him a lot with his balance and general interest in sitting.

And here he is- sitting up in the leaves on his own. A true sitting-up champ!

the many sides of FOUR MONTH OLD ben

So I took Ben in for his 4 month old exam yesterday, and he's in the 50th percentile for height, but 90th for weight. He's a big boy! This would be the age that we could start him on solids, but the doctor said "he doesn't need the extra calories." So, I guess we'll be waiting for a few months to start him on those...sad, I was kind of looking forward to that!
