Back on December 24, this tiny, helpless, wrinkly little guy entered our lives.
Today it’s a mere six months later and he’s already grown significantly and become so much more capable.
About a week ago he started sitting up on his own.
On Sunday we launched our foray into baby-led weaning, giving him first first taste of solid foods. (It was a super juicy, ripe plum.) He seemed to really enjoy squishing tonight’s dinner of avocado and watermelon. Some of it even made it into his mouth!
Benjamin’s been hanging out in the jumperoo for about a month now, and he loves it.
He’s not quite as keen on the swing yet.
Benjamin adores his big sister.
He likes hanging out with the cat too, but I don’t think the feeling is mutual. He hasn’t gotten the hang of petting with an open hand yet.
Another big milestone: Benjamin’s front bottom two teeth erupted this past month, and his constant gnawing makes me think more teeth are on their way soon. I better catch all these gummy smiles while I still can!
