Ben's First Tooth! (And other Ben News!)

Ben FINALLY has his first tooth. It poked through on Wednesday, October 1st! (Pictures are going to be hard to get, though! He hides it!!)

At Ben's 9-month check up, I had a small list of things I wanted to talk to the doctor about. The last thing on my list read, "Teeth Please!"

The doctor took one look in his mouth and said, "He has a tooth!"

I laughed because I thought he was joking....but there it was in all of its little white glory! I'm pretty sure I made a comment about how I was sorry I didn't believe him, but how could I since at Ben's 6 MONTH check-up, he "swore" we'd see teeth by that week-end! =0) I forgave him, though. He really is a great doctor!

Ben weighed in at 19 pounds 13 ounces- 50th percentile. I don't think they got the right length measurement because that child REFUSED to lay still and spread out! The nurse wrote down 27 1/2 inches but I KNOW he has grown more than 3/4 of an inch since the last check-up 3 months ago!- 25th percentile.

He's currently in 9-12 month clothes but can still fit into from 6-9 month pants. (He has a little waist...hehe...but a big baby gut!)

In other news, he is cruising around all over the place and crawling like there is no tomorrow. The little man can "book-it" if he has some place to be! He can even stand alone for small periods of time when he doesn't realize what he is doing.....AND he has stood up on his own once or twice without holding onto anything!

That's all I can think that is new for now....I'm sure I'll think of more things to add later!
