Listen closely and you can hear Bennett singing "The Climb" :) SO PRECIOUS!!!
Quite an appropriate thought for the little guy, huh???
I PINKY SWEAR to you I will be posting video very soon of Bennett walking!! He's all over the place now! No stopping him! Its simply amazing!! Bennett had a physical therapy evaluation week before last and literally the day before just took off!! No PT needed!!! WOOOO HOOO!!!

But.... we think Bennett has his first words....
"Ace! Daddy! Ace!"
Yep, Bennett calls Ace by his first name! Boy do they start young!
Anyway, we're pretty sure he's really using this in context now, so I'm bringing down the gavel and making the official determination that Bennett's first two words are Daddy and Ace.
Now, that there is a great story for the baby book!

18 lbs 7 oz - under 3rd percentile
27.5 inches - under 3rd percentile
head circumference - 15th percentile
A new study has recently come out showing that very small preemies like Bennett, born under 1500 grams do not tend to "catch up" in size until about 5 years of age. Trying to "fatten" him up can have the dangerous side of affect of causing diabetes or obesity when he does catch up. Because he is perfectly proportional weight to height, we'll just be annoyed that he is so tiny, but content knowing that FOR HIM, this is normal and he's doing well.
Developmentally, Bennett is about the level of a 9-12 month old. His Pediatrician thinks we should start speech therapy with him soon, since his speech is very delayed.
Overall, he's doing fabulous!

First, he started to stand unassisted!!! He can only do it for about 10-20 seconds at a time, but he is so darn proud of himself when he does!!!
Second, Bennett took his first three steps on Sunday! Ace was holding his hands when Bennett let go, then sort of panicked, but instead of dropping to the ground, took three amazing steps to the safety of daddy's arms!!!!!!! We were all so very proud of him and jumped up and down clapping like lunatics!
This child never ceases to amaze us! Pics to come soon!
