one month!

i can't believe it. time has FLOWN! don't think mr. ben believes it either. ;o)



sorry for the delay. lots going on. nick is finally almost better. hard to be sleep deprived or sick. but both at the same time... a doozy and lucky for us we both experienced it!

-got the okay from the doc for a 'real' bath. he loves it. can be crying his head off and the minute he hits the water, he is happy. until he's cold... i'm a big bath person and nick was constantly in the bath as a child. so the apple didn't fall far from the tree! here's mr. man chilling on the changing table after a bath.



-celebrated his first holiday... easter.



cute little outfit courtesy of jason and christy. nick promised him he won't have to wear crazy seasonal outfits for long!

-benjamin got his first cold. yup, i gave it to him. didn't require a visit to the ped but lil man was miserable for a day or so. just really congested. i think he actually began to like the blue boogey suction bulb... he knew he would breathe better after it!

-is in love with his hands. so cute. i keep missing the picture of him holding them together. maybe someday...

-has officially grown out of newborn outfits and diapers. biggie is now in 1 diapers and 0-3 mos clothing.

-loves his bouncer. and that means i do too! perfect place for me to put him after his feeding and diaper change when i'm pumping...



and his no more pictures pose...


-his feet barely fit in 0-3 mos onesies. the toes are right at the seam.

-is loving making faces and sounds.



-is eating like a madman. 3 ounces every 2.5-3 hours. we're working on increasing the amount. didn't make much of a difference this morning, so we shall see...

-makes a boatload of noises while sleeping. might look into moving him into his crib soon...

-hung out with grandma lydia while mom and dad went to a wine tasting. and he did great! so did grandma. ;o)

-baby announcements are in the works. hoping to have them out in the next week. are super cute if i do say so myself. robin did an awesome job. and i will be posting a link to his photo shoot soon. then family can order what they want online...

-is mostly a happy lil guy... who is loved very much!



and some random pics from his one month photo shoot...










k. that was officially the most time taken to post on here ever. started at 730 this morning and it's now 115... sheesh!

hoping to get around to comparing the newbie/one month pics in photoshop... we'll see how that goes. might take me four more days! ;o)
