Ben {5 years}

Our wild, smart, funny, lovable Ben. Today you are 5 years old. I can't believe it's been 5 years since you completely changed our lives. 
This past year you've grown and changed so much. You still possess that strong desire to learn and you love asking questions. You excel at writing, coloring, and drawing. You love art and doing projects. Without fail, there is always several pieces of art in your cubby when I pick you up from school. You are beginning to read sight words, and can count well past 100 although you mysteriously manage to leave a whole section out when playing hide and seek. 
I know how excited you are for Kindergarten and I hope you soak up every minute of it...even if the thing you're most looking forward to is not having to take naps.
You're a great sleeper and have only woken up once to Jack crying in the middle of the night. You're also a pretty good eater, and you LOVE to be active and outside. You have more energy than any one person should have, but I wouldn't trade your spazzy little self for anything!
You make me laugh every single day. You say things that someone 2 or 3 times your age would say and you say them so matter of fact. 
I know I've said it a million times, but you are such a great brother. You are very protective and within seconds of Jack crying, you're running to him to offer comfort. I know you can't wait for him to get bigger so you can really play together.

Happy Happy Birthday Big Boy! We love you.
