Baby Ben reached another milestone on his road to big-boydome. After his nap today, we walked into his room to find him sitting up! He has never gotten himself into a sitting position from lying down before. We have no idea how he did it, and he didn't do it again today, but even doing it once is a big step for him. Who knows what he'll be doing this time next month. That's the most amazing thing about a baby's development... one day they can't do something, and then all of a sudden, they can.
In other Ben news, we think that Ben suffers from some seasonal allergies. The air quality has been really bad lately, and the last few days Ben's eyes have been gooping up. The skin around the eye is puffy and red, but his eye is not at all pink, so we don't think it's pink eye. What leads us to suspect allergies, is that he also has the runny nose and a little bit of a cough, but no fever, and he really doesn't seem to be feeling all that bad. I plan to call the doctor tomorrow just in case. We hope there is nothing actually wrong, and hope that maybe there is something we can give him to stop the goop. That just can't be comfortable. But he's handling it all like a champ, still as smiley and happy as ever. What a sweet little boy!
