Benjamin is two years old today. At times we laugh, and say he makes us feel like we're old, trying to keep up with his limitless amount of energy. He's the most amazing blessing in our lives, and we thank God for him over and over again . . .

Current favorites include the movie "Cars", and all the little matchbox cars he can get his sticky fingers on. He also loves to play outside. Loves Hungry, Hungry Hippo. Mr. Noodle (or Noo-noo, as Ben calls him) is another great friend in this house. He would eat cheese for every meal if I would let him, and he's still allergic to milk, so it's one little string cheese per day, no more.

He's tough, and he's strong-willed. He's independent, but very loving. He gives the best hugs. He says "slease" instead of "please". He teaches us something new every single day. Love this kid!

P.S. The cake was red when Greg bought it, but turned pink when we took it out of the fridge!! But Ben's Mimi saved the day, she got him a blue birthday cookie cake, so all's well that ends well!

My sweet friend Sarah sent Benjamin a bubble machine. Oh my!! Ben is mesmerized with it, and cries (more like throws fits) when the bublbles run out. He LOVES it! Thank you Sarah.

Just playing

We played at the park today. I don't know what Ben liked more, running up and down the hills or the actual playground. I can't believe he's nearly two.

Bye-bye Baby

I think I have to (officially) admit that Benjamin is no longer a baby. I did catch him recently sleeping in the fetal position, so I'm still hanging on to a tiny shred of hope that he's tiny and needs me desperately. Yesterday after his nap, Ben and I moved all his blankets and animals from the crib to the big boy bed. Then when bed time rolled around, Greg read him his books, prayed with him, and tucked him in. We didn't hear back from Ben until 6:20 this morning. What a champ! What a big boy. Sniff, sniff . . . I need to get my Kleenex!
