Nicknames: Tiny, Benny Boo, Ben
Sleep: Ben sleeps a lot during the day, and usually wakes up at 1:00 AM, 4:00 AM, and then 7:00 AM. David takes the 1:00 AM feeding and I take the 4:00 AM feeding. Unfortunately, that is the time Ben likes to be awake and after his bottle, he usually gets the hiccups. I don’t get to go back to sleep until around 5:30 AM–If I’m lucky.
Diet: Formula. We nursed for the first four days and that was quite enough for me. I know a lot of people say “breast is best” and I agree, but formula is best for our family. With an extremely mobile 13 month old that does not yet know how to obey, nursing and/or pumping was going to be almost impossible.
Dislikes: tummy time, sleeping at 4:00 AM!
Other Random Things: Ben took his first road trip at two weeks old! We went to Belton/Salado for cousin Natalie’s wedding and he was a champ on the road. Mom and Dad survived sleeping in a hotel room with two kiddos for one night. Luke had a sleepover with BeBe and Grandpa one night 😉
Luke has seemed to warm up to Ben a little bit. When Ben is in his bouncy seat or on the floor, Luke will walk over and gently touch (poke) him and then walk away.
