Happy Birthday Bennett

My baby is 2. I can't believe that two years ago today we were in the hospital in West Lafayette Indiana. Jeff had just graduated with his masters in Engineering from Purdue. He had interviewed at Heartware but hadn't been offered a job yet. We were unemployed but everything felt peaceful. Bennett is such a joy. He has a wonderful temperament. He loves to color, swim, play in the sandbox, legos and he follows Austin around. I feel like there is a little echo all the time. He is a little chatter box. Bennett is clever and a very busy boy. He is really small for his age and everyone is always commenting on it. I like my little peanut kid. He loves his Binki and his little puppy. In fact, he threw a fit this morning because he wanted them while he opened his presents. I figured it was his birthday so I gave in.

 Sand toys!

 He is as tall as Austin was when he was two. He is up to the pickle on his Very hungry Caterpillar growth chart.

 Poor Austin has the stomach flu. He was able to keep some things down all day so I figured I'd gamble and let him have some cake.
 After the traditional pancake breakfast we had for lunch, I had to change his outfit. Sticky sticky.

He loved blowing out his candles. He got a little too close on the second one.
