He was a very brave boy for his shots and actually laughed when the nurse was trying to draw blood from his toe! Laughed. And I really regret not having my camera handy to capture his fascination with the paper on top of the exam table. Definitely the most fun he's had at the doctor's office so far! Tyler got to come to his appointment too, so it was nice for him to hear the doctor's recommendation for eating and sleeping besides my rationale of "It's what the book says to do!" or "Kelley's doing it with Carter!" Dr. Smith said it's time to increase solid foods to twice a day, and I'm sure Ben would be very excited to know there is more rice cereal in his future, among new and interesting flavors. We've tried sweet potatoes so far, and while it doesn't solicit the same spine-tingling chills as rice cereal did at first, he is definitely not sold on the idea.
So there have been lots of changes for Big Ben lately. No more sitting sweetly in the Bumbo or lying calmly on the activity mat; he's graduated to the spaceship highchair and whirly-twirly excersaucer!
