Merry Christmas!!!

Wow... I can't believe it's already December! With Benson keeping us on our toes, time sure passes quickly. Yesterday I took a few pictures of Benson. Not the best quality pictures, but this one was too cute to not post! :)

Merry Christmas!!! We hope your Christmas season is full of family and much joy!

Benson buddy...

you just keep growing!

I can't believe Benson is already 6 months old! He now has 6 teeth and loves his food. Benson is too smart! When we play silly repetitive games you can tell he knows what's coming, cause he prepares himself for the falling pony or the tickling baker's man. It's too cute to watch! He smiles so easy and loves to sit and play with his toys or watch the dogs. Benson loves to be with lots of people and enjoys the attention of pretty much anyone! He's quite the social guy!

Last night we took Benson to campus to get a picture with Santa. Santa got Benson to smile pretty big until something he did made Benson cry. It all happened so fast we didn't really get good pictures, here's the free one they took for us. :)

We're so excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Time sure flies!!!

The past month and a half has gone by sooo fast! Here are a few pictures of our 4-5 1/2 month old Benson and the things he's been up to:

Lots of hanging out,

playing with cousins,

diaper changes,

wanting to eat food,

getting to eat food,

dressing up,

being bored,

looking cute,

and plenty of being silly with his parents!

4 Months!!!

Benson likes to hold his own bottle/toys/feet/teething things... sometimes he likes to act like a 2-year-old and throw a fit if you don't let him do things himself! Benson has been teething for a couple months and those darn teeth don't want to pop out of his gums. Poor guy! Besides teething and his occasional I-do-it tantrums, Benson is so sweet! He loves to play with his toys and his feet. Benson has started arching his back and rolling on his side in order to see what else there is to look at. Last night he actually fell asleep in that position... not sure how! I wanted to take a picture, but I was afraid the flash would wake him. :)

At his 4 month appointment Benson measured in the 70th percentile for weight (15.9 lbs), 74th percentile for head circumference (17 in), and a whopping 99th percentile for height (27.5 in)! He's growing way too fast!

Benson is slowly learning to sit with less and less support. I can't believe how big he is!

We were visiting family and my cousin Sara took this picture of Benson. Benson is learning to really love his little stuffed animals... this one is his favorite right now. :)

Three months old tomorrow!!!
These pictures were taken right before I went in for my gall bladder surgery. This was the last time I really saw Benson for a whole week! He grew WAY too fast!

Since we don't have any family pictures... we tried to get some.

Chewie can't see us sitting on the couch without trying to work his way onto our laps. He's not the smallest lap dog ever...

We figured we might as well get a picture with our other two (more hight maintenance than Benson) kids.

However, the best two of the rest of us are with Lillie yawning...

At the very end of her yawn... doesn't she remind you of Sid on Ice Age!? :)

2 Months... not the best picture, but the only one I have at 2 months.

Not quite 3 months... can you tell the difference!? He's lots bigger and has more hair! :)

Going back in time... well, only about 4 weeks.

Trav's sister Tiffany came to visit for about a month and a half. It was sure fun to have her here! While she was here she took pictures of Benson. Tif did an awesome job considering Benson's cooperation skills that day, or the lack thereof! :)

These were taken when Benson was 2 weeks and 6 days old. I can't believe how much he has grown since!!!
