Our little Bennett is such a lovable guy. He is such a sweet baby and just a joy to be around. He and Logan just had their 2-month-old and 2-year-old check-ups, and yes, at the same time, and yes, Brian absolutely came with me! Here are their stats:
length/height – 23 1/2 inches (75%)
weight – 14 lbs 2 oz (97%) …we definitely have our little ‘chunky monkey’
length/height – 36 1/4 inches (95%)
weight – 29 lbs (50%)
Bennett got 5 shots, Logan got one. Both handled them like tough guys – stickers helped with Logan, sleeping helped with Bennett. It was an experience! On the way there I had told Logan we were going to see the “Doc Doc” and he kept saying “frow rocks, see phishes, pontoon” and I realized he thought the DOCK at Grandpa & Grandma’s house. That was fun to have to explain to him 🙂
Here are some recent pictures I took of Bennett at 9 weeks. He truly is such a gift – as both of our boys are. He has a gentle spirit but I feel a strong one that we’ll start to recognize later in his life. He is very sweet and laid back so he doesn’t make too much noise except when he has the obvious – hungry, tired, or wet. We’ve kind of decided that Logan took after me and Bennett takes after Brian. The best of both worlds for us. Lately, when we ask Logan who his best friend is, he says “Baby Binit” and we pray this for them in the coming years.
Tomorrow night Bri and I are celebrating our 4 years of marriage together – so excited for a date night!
