Bennett's 6th month!

What a huge month this one has been! Bennett, you got TWO teeth! You eat your solids like a champ, doesn't matter what it is - peas, carrots, bananas, apples, sweet potatoes, pears, peaches, you've had them all and scarf them down like no one's business! You can sit up on your own (well, with momma close by) and the way you grab things so maticulously, one finger gripping it at a time, makes my heart melt. You seem so interested in everything, you spend so much time trying to figure out all of your toys. I love to watch you learn. You started giving "kisses" which pretty much consist of you putting your entire drooling mouth on my chin, or cheek, or nose, or whatever you can get in your mouth. You love it, and to be honest, so do I. 

My favorite this month is when you are waiting for that first bite of food, you sit with your mouth open, neck strained forward, arms straight out and your little head shakes in anticipation and concentration. It's the best.

Oh - and Dakota! You watch her intensely, she gives you kisses right in the mouth, and will lick your hand as long as you let her. The giggle that comes when she's licking your hand is down-right hilarious. I hope one day y'all are best friends.
