Bentley: 8 months

Each month seems to fly by so quickly now! I can't believe how much Bentley is learning and growing. More about Bentley this last month:
  • He learned how to crawl and is always on the move now. I have to keep everything off the floor because he will get into it.
  • He pulls himself up to things and at church his favorite thing to do is to walk along the back of the bench. I will try to keep my hand there so he doesn't fall over and he will push my hand away because I guess he thinks he is big enough to do it himself. :)
  • He got sick for the first time. Poor kid was running a 103 fever for a couple days. I felt so bad for the poor boy. I did enjoy the cuddles though since he won't do that at any other time.
  • He loves to feed himself! He is seriously addicted to those baby puff things, or cheerios.
  • He is just barely starting to wear a couple 6-9 month clothes. He is still just a little thing I am working on trying to fatten him up haha but I think he moves so much that he just burns all the calories he eats. 
  • He says mama all the time and I love it!
  • He got in his two bottom front teeth!
  • He has discovered how to click his tongue and he does it all the time. 
  • He is still always such a happy baby I couldn't be more blessed!

Loves to watch tv silly boy

Cuddling when he was sick

Me and Bentley at 6 months we look just a little alike.....

Bentley: 7 months

I am about 2 weeks late posting this maybe sometime I will be quicker at posting :)

I can't believe how quickly Bentley is growing up he blows my mind everyday with the new things that he knows. I really can't picture my life without him now he brings so much joy into my life and I love him so much!

  • The day before he turned 7 months his two front teeth cut through.
  • He loves to eat food! Every night he eats some oatmeal cereal and he always devours it without any problems. He also loves carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, pears, bananas, prunes, and bananas with blueberries. he also loves those little sweet potato start cereal. And he just recently started loving cheerios. It is so fun to watch him get excited about feeding himself :) He hates the baby food green beans, peas, peaches, and apples. I don't blame him they don't smell very good anyway. But if I make them fresh in my food meal he will eat them just fine.
  • He says "mamma" all the time and I love it! I know that he doesn't know yet exactly what it means but it makes me so happy to hear him say it!
  • He still hasn't figured out the crawling thing quite yet. He will still inchworm everywhere and roll wherever he needs to get. And ever since he was little he does this thing on his tummy where he flails around his arms and legs like he is swimming. I think he thinks that he is going places but really it is just kind of funny to watch him look like he is high centered swimming haha.
  • He loves going over to grandma and grandpa's house and it makes it a lot easier to leave him there when I know he is so excited to be there.
  • He sits up great now without support. He really likes me to be in the room though when he is sitting up so it makes it really hard to get anything done but I just have to keep reminding myself that this phase won't last long and I need to cherish all the time I have with this sweet boy.
  • He is still the happiest baby I have ever seen. We get compliments daily about how happy he is and everyone always wants to know if he is just having a really good day but really he is just like that everyday and I love it!
  • If I set him up on his knees next to something he will pull himself up to it.
I LOVE my little man!

Our "despicable" family

He loves this blonde haired little girl!

A boy after my own heart watching hairspray with his mom.

The cutest minion ever!

He was not impressed with the leaves haha

He loves to play with the piano pedals

He is always such a happy boy in the morning! :)

Helping me put away some clothes.

Standing up all by himself!

He was so smiley for his sixth month pictures and he would not smile at me for his seven month ones little stinker!

Haha I couldn't resist he couldn't move in his snow suit!

He loves his carrots a little too much :)

Bentley: 5 and 6 months

These last two months have kind of melted together for me and I got a little behind and totally forgot to post his 5 month post so I will do them together on this post.

  • Each month Bentley gets more and more fun and I am head over heels in love with this boy.
  • He rolls everywhere and he can do it very fast.
  • He loves to smile and giggle. Everyone always says to me " He must be having a good day because he is smiling so much." Well really he is like that everyday and we couldn't be more blessed to have such a happy baby.
  • He has started on fruits and veggies and absolutely loves them! So far carrots are his all time favorite!
  • He has started babbling with consonants now instead of just vowels and it is so fun to hear him trying to talk. 
  • He will sit for a little while by himself but he still hasn't quite figured that one out yet.
  • He still scoots and rolls everywhere to get around. he will occasionally get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth but that is as close to crawling as he has gotten so far.
  • Up until 5 months he was an awesome sleeper and then he started waking up multiple times during the night. I am sure it is just a phase but it still isn't over yet. it could be due to the fact that his first tooth just cut through a couple days ago.
  • He has started to reach for you when he wants you to pick him up which is so adorable.
  • At his 6 month appointment he weighed 13lbs 9oz (less than the 3rd%) his head was 41.7 (7%) and his length was 25.5 (19%).
  • Josh and I are so in love with him and we really can't picture our lives without him now we are so blessed to have him in our lives.
Sorry in advance for the picture overload!
Bentley and his great aunt Jody

I sure love this stinker!

All bundled up to go to uncle Steven's marching band cometition

Ignore the dirty mirror, Bentley likes to slobber on it while looking at himself in the mirror

He got himself stuck rolling around the living room

How adorable is that face and the hat?

He loves giggling and chewing on his fingers as you will see in almost all of his 6 month pictures :)

He is getting so big I can't believe he is already 6 months old!

Bentley: 4 months!

I guess I am a little behind on this post but oh well!
Bentley is still just the best baby. We love him so much and each stage he goes through is so much fun!
  • He learned how to roll over from his back to his tummy this month. He prefers to only do it on the one side but he can do both. He loves to roll and it cracks me up because he hates being on his stomach but every time I roll him back over he immediately rolls back. Silly boy.
  • He loves to smile and jabber at anyone who will look at him. 
  • He loves to be independent and on the floor but only when mom is within seeing distance.
  • Bentley loves his daddy. When Josh gets home from work Bentley lights up and the two of them love to copy each other making noises back and forth.
  • We haven't had his four month appointment yet, that is next week, but he is finally filling out his 0-3 month clothes so I know that he is growing good.
  • I wish he wasn't so camera shy because he makes so many funny faces. 
  • Within the last two weeks he has started to scoot himself from one end of the blanket to the other to his toy so I know that is won't be long until he is crawling.
  • EVERYTHING goes in his mouth and he gnaws on it
    I love these two!

    How can you not smile at that face?

    Sorry I don't know why they decided to post sideways.

    This is what he does to everything... right into his mouth,

    Finally caught part of a smile on camera,

    Cutest naked bum!

    Grandma loves owls so when we went to buy some of these at the store and saw there were some with owls on them we had to get them.

    He was sure loving his cousin Lucy.
