Well, we can officially consider ourselves somewhat good parents. This Wednesday we finally took Bennett to the Doctor's since he left the hospital almost four months ago. I know, I know...what kind of uncaring, inhumane people are we? And trust me, I feel pretty guilty about it. Things just got a little crazy after his birth, what with moving to a new town, trying to get him in the system (SS Card, Birth Certificate, Military Registration, etc.), waiting for our insurance to pick him up, and then actually making an appointment, time sort of got away from us.
But before you call the CPA, just know that he is a completely healthy little boy. Bennett weighed in at 16 lbs. 1 oz., and measured 26 inches. Not bad. He also got a complete check-up and plenty of shots, which he totally hated but recovered from quickly. All in all he was a great patient and we are all breathing a sigh of relief that he has finally got the stamp of approval from an actual Doctor.
Ya, I know we just put a video up of Bennett last week, but this week he started making a completely new sound we couldn't pass up posting. We call it his "Ernie Laugh" because it is just a funny little gurgle in the back of his throat. He does this almost constantly, but especially if you do it back. We love this little guy.
Another fun Bennett Fact is that he went to his first ever movie in an actual movie theater! Me and Matt wanted to see the new Harry Potter movie but felt bad leaving Bennett with yet another babysitter, so we just took him with us. It was a risk, I know, taking a four-month-old to a three hour long adventure film, but Bennett was quite content to sit on our laps and watch the movie right along with us. Needless to say, we were very pleased with his couch-potato ability, but we won't be doing it again anytime soon.
Anyway, I promise that next week I will have more to post. However, I personally think this post was incredibly cute. :)
