seven months and lots of firsts!

Well the month of September has flown by just like the rest of the year. Bentley is learning new things with each day it seems like. I wish I could figure out how to put his videos on here. They are quite entertaining. He crawls all around now except he doesn't use his knees, he just pulls himself like a slinky. He would rather be standing than on the ground crawling. He can balance himself standing for a few seconds now. He will play for hours in his exersaucer and also up next to the ottoman. He loves watching Cooper and Maverick play and he loves to feed them from his chair. Bentley has got a good handle on feeding himself puff cereal and Nutri Grain bars. He loves both fruit and vegetables! Bentley loves when grandma Curtis watches him. He will giggle and giggle when anyone plays with him but especially when Heidi or Collin come up to him. I love to hear him laugh and his smile just melts me. When I nurse him he is so precious and loves to run his fingers through my hair or play with a soft blanket. He went to Build a Bear for the first time when cousin Belle and Chad were in town. My mom took them and we all had such a great time! Bentley loves stuffed animals and my mom put a recording of her voice in the dog as well. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning I look at the video monitor and Bentley will just be playing away with his stuffed animals in his crib. Something kind of funny about Bentley but sad when we see him cry is when we get a new garbage bag out to put in the trash for some reason he freaks out and starts crying hysterically. It is the weirdest thing because it doesn't matter how soft you do it as soon as he sees that bag he is in tears. He is such a good boy though and we are so lucky to have him.

This is what Bentley does when he wakes up. He will cry and pull down his bumper so that he can try to find us. It is so adorable and I love when he spots us.... He will get a huge grin on his face.

Bentley's first Diamond Backs game. He loved it and was so good the whole time. We sat right down by third base and the players dugout. My mom and Collin were there with us as well and we had a great time.

Bentley's first time sitting up in his bath and playing with his toys. Look at that cute little bum.

Bentley wearing his dads favorite bib... The Oilers! He likes to feed himself as much as I will let him.

First time riding the saddle at Texas Roadhouse! Yee hahhhh

Going after Brookes phone. Why is it that all kids love those things.

Bentley and I with cousin Brooke! We made delicious cookies that day.

Look at that fuzzy little hair coming in.

Me and my little angel.

He loves to stand up against the ottoman and play with toys or electronics left there like the remote control or cell phones.

Bentley is such a stud!

My two handsome boys before church. I love to see them in their white shirts together.

Bentley likes to "help" me with the laundry. Usually this requires some things to be folded over and over again (:
