Ben at 2

Ben loves to be outside and to play with cars, but his favorite thing to do is take a bath. Whenever he has a diaper change, he asks for a bath. And whenever he takes a bath, he asks for Sam. (or Sammy, as he calls him)
He is talking more and more and putting two and three words together. He loves to dance and loves anything that has to do with music and will even sing on occasion.

In the past few weeks, he has started not wanting to go to bed and crying at length about it. I decided to put him to be a little later, and he stopped the crying and started to go to bed easily again. He usually goes to bed around 9 and sleeps until 8, usually on the dot. He takes about a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.
We haven't seriously started potty training, but he has gotten the idea. He won't tell us everytime he has to go, but he does it every so often. One day I was watching him run down the hall, and he suddenly stopped. He turned around, went into the bathroom and got himself on the potty (he was naked at the time) and went to the bathroom. I was so proud of him!

Some of his favorite things are his cup and his "night night" (blankie). He takes both to bed. He will eat almost anything and he eats alot, alot of times more than Sam. He has a sweet tooth and loves cake and apples and oranges.

Benjamin, we love you. You have enriched our lives in so many ways and we can't imagine life without you! Have a wonderful year.
