Big Ben

Yes, that's right, I let the Bee out of the bag. The Bumblebee's name is Ben. Around home he's also known as Benbee and Bubby. And he is my big boy. He'll be 15 weeks next Tuesday and he's already about 17 1/2 pounds. Just for the sake of comparison -- my daughter weighed 16 pounds when she was 9 months old.

In this first picture Ben is wearing an outfit that my husband wore when he was a baby. It's hard to wrap my mind around the fact that the outfit is almost 40 years old! I took this photo almost 2 weeks ago and the outfit barely fit him. My husband wore the outfit when he was 6 months old.


Next a good sibling shot from a few days ago. My daughter is still in love with her brother and is constantly lifting him and kissing him and trying to do everything for him. Although given his weight she can't hold him for very long anymore.


And last but not least, a shot of the boy in his bouncy seat. He loves the darn thing so much that I'm replacing the batteries constantly!

My GOODNESS! That is one big bouncing boy. I bet the local high school football coach is already salivating. :-)

Beautiful children. Love the name Ben. Love your daughter's jack-o-lantern smile. Enjoy.
