Bennett | 10 Months
I cannot believe we have reached double digits! I was telling Adam the other day that somedays it feels like the last ten months have flown by, but other times it feels like I've never lived without Bennett. I honestly don't know how I lived 24 years of my life without him!! He is an absolute dream come true.
We have had a fun month around here and BT is up to a lot of new things.
Weight/Height: At his 9 month appointment Bennett was 20lbs (30th%) and 29in (98th%). Ever since Bennett started crawling and moving around everywhere he hasn't been putting on weight as fast ; ) He is tall and skinny according to the charts but definitely still looks like a linebacker to us!!
Hair: It's past time for another hair cut (third). His hair is still super thick and looks hilarious right when he wakes up.
Clothes: We have been stocking up on fall clothes this month and have found some really great deals. We have a really great consignment store in town that has mostly designer/boutique brand clothes and I have found a ton there. Also, gap is always a go-to for us!
Diapers: Size 3 but will definitely be getting into 4's soon.
Sleeping: We usually put Bennett down by 7:00 and he will sleep until about 6:30. Some mornings he will wake up early but we don't get him out until 6:30. He is learning this and will either go back to sleep or sit up and "talk" until we come get him.
Likes: This past month has been full of trying new foods and one of his favorites is pancakes! He eats 3 mini-pancakes most mornings and would probably eat 10 if I let him.
Dislikes: I honestly can't think of anything off the top of my head that he really disliked this month!
Eating: Bennett gets a 7.5oz bottle in the morning when he wakes up, breakfast (mini pancakes, cheerios) for breakfast, snacks throughout the day (puffs, fruit, veggies, quesadillas, etc.), baby food occasionally (mostly pouches for snacks), 2 sippy cups of formula throughout the day, whatever we eat for dinner, and a 7.5oz bottle before bed.
Milestones: Bennett got 3 teeth this month! Teething is not easy for our boy but he made it through getting one bottom tooth and both top teeth at the same time. He looks super cute (and big!) with his new little teeth.
Baby items we can't live without: Bennett has been obsessed with his walker this month. He is still a little scared to walk by himself but will literally run through the house with his walker. He is also obsessed with books and trucks. It is so fun to watch him play in his playroom!
I can't believe we are only two months away from his first birthday! Talk about the fastest year EVER. I have been busy buying invitations and decorations and hope to have everything ready well in advance so I don't have to worry about it ; ) Here is a little sneak peek at the venue we picked for his party....
so so excited!
