The Bennie-booger is 2! We celebrated Bens birthday yesterday. We usually celebrate birthdays in the evening. We let the kids pick their favorite dinner, then we do the gifts, and then their cake. But Daniel was teaching a class last night, so we did things a little differently. We celebrated much earlier in the evening, with presents first, then cake before dinner. But Ben didnt care. He was happy as a 2 year old could be. He kept saying "appy birday, yay" over and over, and when we asked him how old he is he replied, "i 2!!!" He was literally all smiles.
Some things we love about our Bennie-boo:
Ben has been a snuggler from birth. Even being the busy bodied 2 year old that he is, he still loves snuggles and I cant get enough.
Ben is just a happy kid. Aside from the occasional temper tantrums, Ben runs around with a smile all day long. He is just genuinely happy 97% of the time.
Ben is so loving. Anytime anyone cries in this family, Ben is there giving them loves. It seriously melts my heart.
Ben is so easy to get to laugh, and his laugh makes the rest of us laugh.
Ben is the destroying angel. He loves to get into everything and makes GINORMOUS messes in the matter of seconds, but he's so stinking happy that its really hard not to laugh at him. He's so proud of himself when he's managed to empty out the fridge and is covered in ketchup, ranch, or pickle juice and cramming "m ms" into his mouth. And he always offers to share those "m ms"- he's just so generous. :)
Ben loves to jump. And its hilarious watching him do it. He goes around saying "ump ump ump" while jump jump jumping. My all time favorite is when he jumps jumps jumps and then his feet slip right out, and he falls on his little butt, then looks up smiling saying "wowie wowie!" I think he means owie owie, but its a very impressive stunt, so wowie explains it quite well.
Anyway-we are so thankful Ben is a part of our family. He's definitely a keeper.
