Standing Benjamin

It seems even babies who can’t see know when you have your video camera out, otherwise I would be able to share with you a very exciting video of Benjamin going from the floor to standing up without any support! He did it a couple of times in a row last night but we couldn’t get him to repeat it once we had a camera on him. So you will just need to take my word for it.

He also has been letting go of things and standing unsupported for longer than ever before. It made us so happy to see him standing clapping and smiling today for like 20 seconds. Normally he will wobble over pretty fast, or lunge towards us, or make a fun game of falling on his bum.

Ben is also in nonstop motion – climbing up his giant stuffed dog onto the couch or moving around his toys or the furniture in a cruising/rolling/falling/climbing combo. Good thing he’s tough though – he ends up banging his head a lot.

He’s leaning on me here but you get the idea

  1. That’s awesome! I was just telling Joe if we think about it Ben is catching up pretty quickly ( he was born a few months early and knowing that when you add the math he’s doing exactly what is expected out of him 🙂 ) Oh boy that means soon enough you’ll have a toddler running around! I know ya must be excited! He’s a boy and some rough tumbling is good lol he is after all Super Ben!

  2. The tough part is standing up, so you’ll be running after him very soon. Pretty great news!
