How did 11 months pass already?

Eleven months! One-One! That’s 31 days until 1 year!

Things have been good in Benjaminland. He has now hit 14 pounds at his last doctor appointment, which is great, but he’s still very small even for his adjusted age. Feeding has been on and off difficult, but one of Ben’s therapists is making a recommendation for a feeding therapist.  If gets approved it could really help, especially as we increase the solids – which right now just makes him puke.

Ben is getting really good at pushing himself up and seems much more interested in moving around. He’s getting to be a strong little guy. We are also hoping to start occupational therapy too. What sort of occupation could Benjamin have, you ask? Well right now his occupation (as listed on the census) is “baby”. So that’s what he’d work on – baby stuff. Though at this rate we’ll have to put in a waiting room at our apartment for all the therapists coming and going.

So lots of 11-month cuteness for you, including a giggle video (and yes – that’s a Steelers shirt from uncle Jamie… no one tell Benjamin about today’s game ok?):

  5. Hey there,

    A while ago I listened to your story on the Risk! podcast. It was pretty late at night, but by the time the story was done all I could think was: I. Must. Know. What. Happens! I found your blog and spent the rest of the night reading every post.

    Your blog and your posts about beautiful Benjamin never cease to make me smile. He is the most adorable baby and I love hearing about his life.

    I just wanted to let you know how much your story has inspired me, and become a part of my daily pick-me-up.

    Congrats on 11 months!
