My Big 2 Year Old

My little one turned 2 on Saturday (same day as Blake's bday). I can't believe it. I've said it with the other ones too, but for some reason when it's the youngest, it's harder to believe how fast the time has gone by. Isn't he adorable?!

Here he is enjoying the bounce house with the other kids. We bought this 2 years ago to help strengthen Ian and Avery. It's been a wonderful investment. We're ready for another one that's durable enough for bigger sizes. The kids love it!

The cake, made by my friend, Julie (and her son). She is an incredible maker of cakes. I try to get her to do all my kids' cakes. Show her a picture, and wa-la! I think people like coming to the parties just to see what the cake will be!

Benjamin working on blowing out the candles. Luckily, no spit. With a little (okay, a lot) of help from Dad, the candles went out.

Ben wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake this year either. After viewing it for a short while, he decided a nose dive would work best!

And Ian wasn't about to miss out on the fun! Lucky for him, his brother decided to share!

This was only part of the end result after he was done with that cake. The bath afterwards was almost as fun!

Mom and Daddy enjoying his cuteness.

Happy Birthday, Ben! Great pictures...especially that last one ;)
He looks older than 2. Is he tall for his age? Or maybe it's just that Evan is short! He'll be 3 next month.

Jen, yeah, I've been told he's tall for his age. I actually think it's because he's so petite'ish...all 3 of them run really thin, so it makes them look taller.
