Gaa, Gaa, Gaa

I swear sometime that Ben says real words. But really what new parent doesn't think their kid is the best at everything and SSSSOOOO far ahead of the game? I know I do!! Truth is that he is ahead of the game in some areas. We had him weighed about 2 weeks ago and he was 15 lbs. 4 oz.!!! how crazy is that?!?!?! He is in the 95 percentile for weight!! Big Ben, for sure!!
Tomorrow, Ben turns 4 months!! He is already rolling from his back to his tummy, i feat that few 5 months olds accomplish!! (or so I've heard). He has his favorite toy, a monkey rattle!! He loves to chew on it and he can even hold is up to his mouth all by himself!!
This next part I want to sugar coat for everyone. Here goes:
My baby loves to be held. Constantly. He loves his momma (me) so much that he cries when he's not with me. I get everything that matters done: holding my baby boy!! Nothing else keeps him happy and smiling like my hugs.
But seriously, I can't get anything done when he is like this because he screams so loud and long that my head feels like its gonna explode!! Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that he loves me and want to be with me all the time, but I need some sanity time. Nap time, you say? Yes, yes that would be a good option.... IF MY BABY TOOK A GOOD NAP!!! no really, Ben takes a few hour long naps and thats on a good day. I barely have time to get rid of my headache enough to lay down for a short nap when who do i hear calling from upstairs? By beautiful blue eyed baby boy named Ben. And yes, his eyes are still blue!!
