Happy Birthday Ben!

Happy 2nd birthday to Ben!  I can't believe it's been two years since you changed our lives and introduced us to a love we never knew.  It's been an amazing ride to have you in our lives and we are so happy to be your parents.  You are smart (REALLY smart!), curious, thoughtful, loving and kind.  You are the kind of kid that everyone tells us they want to have.  You are going to be an amazing big brother to your new baby sister or brother, who is arriving any day now.  We can't wait to see you in that role!

This weekend we had a party for you at the house and everyone had a great time eating, playing and hanging out in the back yard on a sunny day.  The best part for me was after most people had gone home and you played out back in your new sprinkler.  It was pure joy for you to be playing in the water, and for me to watch you be that happy.  I hope that you can relive that kind of joy again and again throughout your life.  Happy birthday, Ben!  We love you so much.  ; )
