Ben went for his 6 month checkup today. He is doing so great, hitting every single milestone he should be at this point. He weighed in at 15 lbs 12 oz (25%) and 27 inches (75%). He's just such a happy healthy boy. He got 3 shots, which is always the saddest thing. Ben hardly ever cries, especially big tearful wailing cries, so it is strange to see him as upset as he gets when he gets shots. But he calms down very quickly, so I'm sure he's not totally traumatized by it all, and it's better than getting Rubella! =)
The boys also got to take their first bath together tonight. Joshua was so excited to take a bath with Baby Ben, and Ben looked equally as excited when he saw that Josh was climbing in there with him. Ben's not quite big enough for this to be a regular occurrence, but it sure is nice for him to be able to do it every once in a while on nights when Mommy or Daddy are flying solo and both kids need baths!
