As you can see, Ben is smiling like crazy. It's hard to NOT catch him grinning- such a happy baby. He's been laughing a lot, which is the cutest thing. He talks all the time, too, just like his Daddy. These aren't new this month, just a lot more pronounced.
What IS new this month is rolling on his side, and lifting his head up during tummy time. He can also roll from his belly to his back, but not vice versa yet.
Ben has been grabbing toys (and hair!) and putting them in his mouth, and also has discovered his fingers! He likes his thumb a lot :) He also enjoys playing with his tongue.
We went on his first "official" trip this last week. We drove to the beach, which is about a 5 hour drive from here. We stayed for several days, and he did great. I could tell he needed his schedule back around the last day we were there, though. He was so happy to come home, but definitely enjoyed all the new things to see. We stayed in Moclips, WA, and visited Lake Quinault.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
