6 weeks and counting...


I finally got my camera fixed! I missed more than 2 weeks of Ben's life- oh well. I made up for it today though. There is so much to tell...

The first 6 weeks have been so tough. I barely got any sleep during the night. Well, last Sunday Ben actually slept all night-not completely "through" the night, but he went to bed at 10pm got up at 2am, 4am, and 6am. We were thrilled! It was the first time it had ever happened! Then, the next 4 nights were even better! Woo hoo!!

Ben is starting to smile socially now, and he lets out squeals of joy! He hates sleeping flat on his back. Ever since he was home he has been sleeping on his bouncer. I have tried many times to place him on the bassinet and crib, but 5 minutes later, he wakes up. The first night he was here he didn't really sleep well. Now he sleeps on our chests. He loves sleeping on his tummy. I was scared at first because of SIDS, but I'm more at ease now that he can hold is neck up and turn it from side to side.

Today we went to Aunt Kelly's place and hung out with her and Weston. Here are Ben and Weston letting the world know that they are BEST BUDDIES






Happy Bud! He has a cute little dimples!
"snort-snort"


Ben loves to stand with support, here he is without support against the couch.






Ben, say cheese!


Ben inside my Moby wrap. He LOVES it! It helps me get things done around the house.


Aunt Kelly sporting the "Moby"


It's hard to say what color his eyes will end up being, but for now, they are bluish gray!


Ben in his Bumbo chair, it helps him sit up.


He is sooo amazing, I love having a baby! I'm sad to go back to work next week. Aunt Kelly will be baby sitting him while I'm at work. Both Steve and I's schedules clashed this semester. Hopefully by January he will quit FedEx and take care of Ben while I'm at work.

I applied to the Bachelor's of Nursing program for next semester. They will let me know mid November whether I got in. I applied to do the online program, that way I can be at home with Ben while I do school work. It's a 3 semester program, so I might finish around the same time as Steve. Hope I get in!

Glad you enjoyed the pictures of my super cute son! More to come...
