Happy 2nd Birthday Ben!

Ben turned two years old on August 29th. We celebrated it Labor Day weekend with Nana, Mimi and Papa, the Duerres. The day Ben came into our lives was like a whirlwind. He was 8 weeks early and really just wanted to come out, I guess. He is growing, but still seems so young and tiny to me. He is getting pretty tall and is in the 59th percentile for height, but only the 4th for weight. He loves playing with cars and wrestling with Jake. We celebrated his birthday with a cookout, cake made by Aunt Gina and some ice cream. He wasn't too interested in actually opening the presents, but more interested in seeing what was inside. He loves Buzz Lightyear, so aunt Gina made him a Buzz and Woody cake. It was sooooooooo yummy!
