Day 3 – Month 3
By 3 months we were calling Benny ‘the dude’. He was still smiling non stop, not really crying and stunned me by rolling over at his 10 week appointment in the doctors office. We had some set backs too though. He had been found to have a slight torticolus (where his neck is stronger on one side than the other) and twitch to his foot that sent us to UMASS for an EEG. All turned out well, but Sandy always said that Benny was the one that would keep us guessing.
He spent lots of time outdoors with Darcy and I that summer and logged many miles in the stroller as I got ready for the 3 Day. Parker followed me along the 60 mile route with both kids. Benny was around 10 weeks old and thank goodness that he was a good nurser because I was able to make through the walk with quick nursing breaks.
During this time we also took our first (as a family of 4) camping trip with Tara and her family. Yes, we slept in a tent and it was like hedonism with all of the naked kids running around. We went swimming in the lake and brought Benny in, who didn’t protest, but seemed to enjoy the cooler water. He was still our super chill dude.
At about this time his mohawk was in full effect too. Both of our children seemed to have the most unruly hair!
