Benjamin Turns Two!!

Today my sweet baby boy turns TWO!!! It is amazing to look back two years ago at this time...when our lives were so different. Benjamin has brought soo much JOY to our family - Seth and I have marveled at his achievements so far...and every time he does something new, we are so proud! I imagine this will continue throughout his life. Just so we can remember Benjamin at TWO (because he is a different little boy every month or so), here are some of his milestones/favorite things, etc...
He is OBSESSED with cars, trucks, tractors and trains and he wants to "race" all day
He is sweet, sweet and knows how to get Mommy to melt --> flash that snaggle tooth smile!
He loves oatmeal, juice, Wheat Thins, M&M's, peanut butter, grilled cheese, Mexican food, and yogurt
He is getting more and more adventurous - going down the BIG tunnel slide and trying new things he was too cautious to do before now --> he usually prefaces this by saying, "watch this Mommy!"
He still sleeps very well - 2+ hour nap and 12 hours at night...every day, every night
He loves his Allie and Lemonade, his two stuffed animals...and is still using his paci for bedtime
He has an extensive vocabulary...and he is saying full sentences with 5 or more words together regularly
He still loves to read books and is beginning to enjoy watching videos (Dora is his fav)
He enjoys spending time with his friends - and he remembers who we are supposed to meet that day even if I told him the night before
I will post his stats after we have his 2 year well baby appointment...but if I had to guess, I would say he is over 33 inches tall and 32+ pounds.
Happy Birthday, my beautiful big boy!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!
