Benjamin: 6-Month Check In

Oh little Benjamin.

His laughs are bigger, his expressions more animated, his body stronger.

He’s 6 months old now, and he’s all baby.

Even though Benjamin was braced for the first 4 months of his life, he’s hitting his milestones way faster than my son did. Noah may have been sitting upright at 6 months (so does Benjamin, before toppling over after a few minutes), but he certainly wasn’t as mobile as this kid. Ben got the green light from his hip doctors and went straight for the crawling — and he can now drag himself across the room, especially if there’s a book or toy that he’s eyeing. It’s not traditional “crawling,” per se, but he sure can get from Point A to Point B.

Watch out, mama.

He’s also growing into a playful little ball of giggles — his game of choice being peek-a-boo.

At 6 months, Ben is nothing but laughter, smiles, and happiness.

And — lucky for us — that bright energy spreads to everyone around him.
