Height: 28 inches tall
Dislikes: We've been going on a lot of walks now that the weather is nice and Bennett cries if the sun is in his eyes. I have the shade down on the stroller but he still doesn't like it which can be stressful when you have a long street to walk down before you can turn and get out of the sun!!
Milestones: Bennett finally popped out his first two teeth this month! Shockingly enough, he is still not crawling!! He gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth and will even move his arms about 3-4 times before he just plops on his belly and decides he can get there easier if he just rolls to his destination. If I were a first time mom I would probably be super worried that he wasn't crawling but as a second time mom....all the praise hands! Ha!! I'm hoping he's just going to skip crawling and go straight to walking. He can almost stand up all on his own and literally hardly holds onto anything when he's standing. He's just not brave enough to let go! Bennett seems to be focused on mastering his verbal skills and I am very impressed at how well the sounds he makes are. He says "Mmmmmm" when he really likes the taste of something and I think it's super cute!
Month Twelve: Bennett is starting to move everywhere and get into everything. He may not be crawling but he can certainly get anywhere he wants to be! He is beginning to imitate our sounds really well and moving beyond just babbles. If Campbell is eating something, Bennett looks at him for a second then lets out a yell to let us know he needs exactly what Campbell has. Because of this, our grocery bill has gone up significantly!! So many applesauce and yogurt pouches in my life.
