Another late post, but here it is. This month has been such a huge month for Ben. He has accomplished so many things and continues to learn and grow very quickly. One week after he turned eight months he officially retired his army crawl and began hands and knee crawling. The next day he started to pull himself up onto everything. He loves walking around the furniture and just walking with us holding his hands. He has mastered standing on his own and he has a strong desire to walk. He also tries climbing everything!
He has been shaking his head “no” since he was 6 months old but he actually understands the word and the action together now. He understands that the wave and the word hello go together, and he understands that when we say “Yayyy!” that we clap too. It amazes me everyday what this little boy does.
He has now also started to do a little dance when he hears a song or when we sing. Ben loves to try and dress himself by putting clothes on his head and he will help me undress him by pulling his shirt off over his head. His seventh tooth recently cut through and another one is working its way out. I can’t believe he has spent nine months of his life in my belly and now nine months out of it. Keep growing and learning our little man, we love you so much! ♥
