-Screaming for fun :)
Here we are at 7 months. I feel like I need to start planning his 1st birthday soon...crazy! He's just getting so big so fast, it's amazing. Aside from the last week, which I am attributing to his tooth coming through, he was been sleeping pretty good still. I'm still just feeding him once a night, which feels so good. Now we just need to teach him to sleep past 6am!
I decided to let Benjamin feed himself an entire meal of sweet potatoes one night and it was pretty funny. He had a good time and food went flying everywhere. :)
Benjamin has finally mastered sitting up on his own without falling over and he is very proud of himself. It's a whole new world to discover sitting up. And yes, he is wearing a necklace...it's a baltic amber teething necklace. :)
Rob and I celebrated our 8th anniversary this last month. I can't believe it has been that long. We went out to dinner (with Benjamin) and I have to say I don't think we'll be doing that again for an anniversary :) Anyway, here are Rob and Benjamin in cute matching plaid shirts.
For 4th of July last year I was just a few months pregnant with Benjamin and couldn't leave the house, so I watched the fireworks from our backyard and tried to get a peek over the roof and in between the trees. This year we had a BBQ at our house and walked down to the lake by our house where they had a huge fireworks show. It was a really nice show and was SO loud and I can't believe Benjamin slept through the entire thing!
We decided to be brave and go on our first camping trip this year. We ended up at a spot with a little more people there than we would have liked but we still got a nice spot close to the water and the weather was beautiful! We had fun during the day just hanging out on the water and swimming. Benjamin did great during the day but the evenings and sleeping were not fun at all. I'm honestly not sure if it was the camping and being in a different place with lots of noise or if it was his teething (or maybe a combination of the two) but he just refused to sleep unless I was holding him. The two nights we stayed were definitely challenging since I froze and only got about 2 hours of sleep each night but it was still a nice trip. It is still up for debate if we will try again this year or wait until next year when he's older.
Benjamin has also started screaming...very loudly. He thinks it's pretty funny and loves it when we scream back.
