Adventures in PB&J Parenthood: 9 Months!

9 months in, 9 months out!


We've officially reached 9 months with our Benjamin!

Hello September!
September is always such a happy month for our family. It's a month filled with anniversary fun and just a year before, the month we announced our little rainbow love! As a whole, our September was filled with more growth, milestones and of course, love filled memories!

iProud of Dad
September brought about another huge milestone for our family, this time for our PB It was the release of his latest work project: the Apple Watch Series 4! For those that don't know, PB is an engineer or as I like to call him, an "engiNerd" for Apple. We're so proud of him for all of the hard work, sacrifice and love that he and his team put into creating this new generation of Apple Watches! Yay PB!

Playtime and beyond!
To say that Ben has grown leaps and bounds is an understatement. He amazes me each and every day with how curious he is with the great big world around him. He's been super into playing with his new toys, especially anything and everything that lights up and makes sound. Here's our little "DJ Benny Ben" creating his own music mix and dropping those baby beats.

All I want for fall are my two front teeth
Last month Ben had his first two bottom teeth come in. As exciting and crazy as that initial teething time was, we were in for another surprise.... One more tooth this month! Ben started getting his top teeth in and while it has proven to be fun times with the teething journey, it's also been a joy to see his new toothy smile!
I spy a few little baby teeth!

Feed me all the foods
Ben expanded his foodie adventures this month with trying even more new solid foods. Hello bananas and avocados! What we've found that he's enjoyed the most though? The classic Gerber Puffs! This kid literally goes crazy over these things. It's been such a wonder to watch him learn how to pick up each puff and learn how to snack on the little nibblets.

On the go, go go!
Ben is on the move, I repeat, Ben is on the move! With the help of Ben's favorite "puffs" we officially have a crawler on our hands! Ben initially looked like a floppy fish when it came to crawling. He flapped everywhere and ended up scooting himself backwards most of the times. But with persistent encouragement, practice... and puffs, he made his big moves forward. My oh my, our little Ben is finally on the go! It makes me wonder what new milestone we'll have to report about on our next parenting update post!

9 months in, 9 months out
As crazy as it seems, I can't believe we've hit the 9 month mark. It's a little bittersweet since it took 9 months to grow our little miracle and now here we are 9 months out. I can't believe his first year is almost over. But the amount of happy memories and incredible growth our little one has brought us these past 9 months has been nothing short of magical. Here's to the next 9 months, years, decades and more to come!

So here's to the next month ahead! What will we have to report on? Well for starters, we'll have another Disney adventure to recap from Ben's 1st Halloweentime at Disneyland. Until then, thank you for reading along! 💜
