Ben: 3 & 4 Months


Ben at 3 Months and 4 Months

This little boy is 4 months old. Holy moly! He loves to drool, laugh, smile and sit up (with some help). He loves his big sis and his little face is changing every day. He has little arm rolls and leg rolls and is just about 40% for both height and weight. He had his first real fever on the day of his 4th month birthday. So he spent the next day at the hospital getting blood work, and luckily it turned out to (only) be an upper respiratory infection. So he had a week of being stuck home with mom and dad, but he was always his happy little self.

 3 Months

Weight/Height: 14.2lbs / 23.5″
Wearing: 3 Months, some 6 Months onesies
Favorite Things: He likes bath time and big sis. 
Biggest Milestone: Rolling over front to back.
Biggest Challenge: Going back to work and leaving this precious baby at daycare.
My Favorite Part of This Stage: He is starting to laugh! It is so cute. 
Looking Forward To: More laughs and getting in to more of a routine.

4 Months 

Weight/Height: 14.10lbs (39%) / 24.75″ (37%)
Wearing: 3 Months, some 6 Months onesies
Favorite Things: He loves to be outside, loves to see himself in the mirror and still loves riding in the car. But his sister makes him smile like no one else can. It is the sweetest thing.
Biggest Milestone: Sleeping from 9PM – 6AM most nights. 
Biggest Challenge: He doesn’t sleep as soundly as he did when he was a newborn… so it’s tough getting little sister to keep her voice down long enough for him to get a decent nap.
My Favorite Part of This Stage: The smiles! He is so happy and each smile makes my heart burst.
Looking Forward To: Continuing to see his little personality get stronger and stronger. 

Ben, July 2017Ben, July 2017I spent so many nights worrying about how life would be with two kids. Would Blaire feel like old news? Would like be crazy? Well, life is crazy but it’s good crazy. We are so blessed.

Here’s to finishing off the summer with lots more fun.

    What a fun age this is! They get so interactive, but I also remember the sleep regression and I used to be all like “nnnnoooooo…” hehe! He is such a cutie, can’t wait to see your next update!

    How sweet! He is just precious! Milestone updates are wonderful to do because you forget so quickly all the little things.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
