My really handsome baby boy turned ONE today. ONE! How can that be? How did a whole year go by? It is has been SO FAST! But our boy is officially one year old and we just love being his family. Ben is SUCH a good kid. He is seriously the cutest thing ever. Like, people we don’t know develop crushes on him at the grocery store. I’m not sure if it’s his big blue eyes, crooked yet charming smile, devil-may-care hair do and the adorable sweetness that just pours out of him, but this kid is a keeper.
I feel so blessed to be this kids mama. He has the BEST disposition ever (though I will admit, he does have a bit of a temper… especially if he’s hungry) but he is just such a sweet heart. He also has such an incredible sense of humor. He will just bust out laughing at stuff. We aren’t sure what’s funny, but whatever it is it’s a riot. He LOVES his big sister Lauren, and I so love watching them together. They have their typical sibling moments from time to time, but for the bulk of the time they are just head over heels in love with each other. Ben loves hanging out with Lauren when she’s in her room, watching Yo Gabba Gabba or Backyardagins with her, and playing around with his sis. He isn’t walking yet, but I think that’s because he can crawl so crazy fast that he just doesn’t want to slow down! And really, I’m okay with him needing me to hold him for a while longer.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Benners! We love you!
