What a big boy!

My mom and I took Ben for his 6 month check up on Monday. He now weighs 18lbs 14oz and is 26 1/2 inches long. The doctor said that he is in the 50th percentile for his height, 80th for his weight and 95th for his head! The head one struck me as funny because he doesn't seem like he has a big head. Oh well. He also got three shots. He didn't cry when they did the first two but then the third one seemed to push him over the edge. I hate when he gets shots! I know it keeps him healthy but it's still tough to watch. The funny thing about Ben is 5 minutes later he'll be smiling and laughing and you would never know he had shots! He always flirts with the receptionist when we leave. He is a funny boy!

Ben has started to eat food at daycare. He is a messy eater even at daycare! We are going to a Halloween party on Sunday for his daycare. It'll be fun seeing all the kids dressed up in their costumes. Wait to see what Ben's costume will be!

Ben turned 28 weeks on Wednesday. He didn't want to stay still. After we took his picture, he went after the paper with the number of weeks on it and started to try to eat it. He likes to go after anything paper like these days. He also likes the remote and phones. Typical man going after the remote! :)

I love making Ben laugh. It is the best feeling in the world! Here is a video I took of Jason making Ben laugh.
