Ben went to the doc today. He’s up to 21.75″ (which is just above the 50th percentile according to the growth chart) and 9 lbs. 4 oz. (in between the 25th and 50th percentiles), so he’s average. Everything’s good. He’s getting strong – he’s putting weight on his feet when held up and he’s working  on lifting his head. He’s sticking his tongue out a lot and the doc said he’s either starting teething (what?!) or he’s trying to talk (?!x2). Doc said he’s long and lean and doing good.

He’s more and more alert during the day. He likes looking around, listening to music, walking with mom or dad, or flying around like Super Ben.
