Baby Ben is Growing Up

Ben is six months old!! He is growing up way too fast, and I don't like it one bit! I wish he would stay this little forever. But, I know that is not going to happen, so I will try to enjoy these milestones along the way.

Ben at six months old:
  • 16 pounds 12.5 ounces (25th percentile)
  • 25.5 inches tall (25th percentile)
  • head circumference of 18.5 inches (still 100th percentile)
  • Sleeps from 9pm-8am, usually without any feedings
  • Is holding his head up and rolling around
  • Thinks Jack is the funniest person in the world
  • Loves his Baby Einstein playmat and all the hanging toys
  • Chews on his hands non-stop and occasionally gets a foot in there
  • No teeth yet, but he is definitely working on some
  • Had his first baby rice cereal, I am quite certain it all came back out his mouth
  • Talks all the time, he has the sweetest voice
  • Is the happiest baby in the world!

We had a big photo shoot to celebrate his six month birthday, so I thought I would share some of the pics!
