Benjamin is turning 7 months this week, and he’s starting to get to that fun, little-monkey stage. He’s full of personality — belly laughs and smiles abound — and so much more baby-like than he’s been, yet isn’t totally mobile yet.
It’s a sweet spot in the first year, for sure.
Take a peek at Benjamin as he rounds his 7-month milestone:

How could you possibly look at that face and not fall in love? Ooph. My heart.
The Many Faces of Benjamin
He’s all about the expressions right now — coy and flirty, wide-eyed and curious, infectiously happy, etc. And always — ALWAYS — adorable.
Ben started dabbling in the fine cuisine of solids, which has culminated in a period of constipation and one or two adverse reactions. He’s still in the one-food-at-a-time phase, but he’s almost done with the first round of taste testings.
Noah was sleeping a full 8 to 11 hours by 7 months, but Benjamin is still up every one or two hours at night. It might be teething — he finally cut his first tooth last week. How does your 7-month-old baby sleep at night?
But He’s Not Particular
Ben is in this awesome in-between stage: he’s starting to practice his
mobility, but isn’t able to cause full-on destruction just yet. All he needs is a laundry basket and a good book.
