3 months + 11 years.

Happy 3 months Bentley! are growing like a weed!

You don't have a wellness visit until you are 4 months so I'm going to guess that you are about 13.5 lbs.

You are in 3 month clothes (about to creep into 3-6 months), size 1 diapers, & size 1 shoes.

This month we have seen a HUGE growth in your development.

You smile & laugh from sun up to sun down, with the exception of when you are hungry or tired.

You have begun to reach for your toys on your play mat & love to sit in your bumbo.

You LOVE to be talked to & can carry on quite the conversation.
{note: for some reason, you belly laugh like crazy when your daddy calls you Frankenstein!?}

You are now on infant formula exclusively.
[ stress took a toll on momma's body :( ]

You are such a good sleeper! You snooze from about 8:30/9 pm to 6:30/7 am.

You are such a ray of sunshine & our hearts simply melt when you look at us.

We love you B!


11 years ago, today, me & JWB decided to "go-out".


happy "anniversary" handsome.

i love you.

Sleeping baby = happy momma!

Two months!

Bentley technically turned two months old last week but his doctor's appointment was this morning so I waiting until today to record his stats! 


You weigh 12 lb 3 oz.

You are 22.75" in length.

Your noggin' is 16" round.

You wear a size 1 diaper & size 3 month in clothing.

You smile & coo constantly & it lights up our world.

You sleep the night through (asleep around 9 pm, up around 6:30 am).
Your daddy & I are so very thankful for this little man.

This month you spent alot of time in your bathing suit!
You took your first dip into the pool & lake.

Every day you make our hearts swell with happiness.
You are just the sweetest, go-with-flow baby ever.

Happy 2 months Bent!
We love YOU :)
