and at three... {his 2year post! and his one year post.}

he was sick. thought he was acting a bit off saturday morning. ended up rocking a pretty impressive fever later that day. {and apparently, he was sick last year on his birthday too. hopefully, this trend doesn't continue.} he still has one. so it's tag team between nick, my mom, and myself to stay home with him until it clears.

- would eat cereal for every meal if we let him. or pasta.
- remains obsessed with sports of all sorts. soccer, basketball, and football are the three biggies.
- will read to himself. so cute. melts me every time.
- is wearing 2t clothing. almost 3t on top thanks to the cute little buddha belly of his!
- sleeps from about 8 pm to 630 am.
- hasn't had an potty accident in about a week. nighttime is another story. but the pediatrician isn't concerned. seemed impressed that he was doing so good. gave some credit to daycare and his little buddies being trained.
- loves thomas the train.
- called his pediatrician dr. suess repeatedly instead of dr. stroman. thankfully, our doctor is awesome and totally went along with it!
- knows all of his upper case letters. working on the lower case and numbers. we're almost there. but who knows... he may answer differently at school and he may really know them all. he's tricky like that.
- loves singing and music in general. so cute to hear him sing along with songs in the car. like, i'm sexy and i know it.' or 'like a love song' by selena gomez.
- isn't shy. but if he doesn't know you he's a total momma or daddy's boy.
- pretty sure he's gonna be the class clown. loves being silly for attention. has gotten in trouble for it at school too!
- has the cutest lil swagger when he walks.
- would take a bath all day every day.  and would prefer it if nick joins him in the tub.
- talks constantly about bad guys. {i'm blaming nick and his video games especially when he tells me he saw them on daddy's computer!}
- will tell you that he's a 'good teamer' when you're playing any type of sports with him.
- wants to know if you like whatever it is he has/is doing.  he'll ask, 'you wike dat?' or 'that your favorite?'
- will try to talk on the phone whenever nick or i am talking to someone. and he doesn't like taking no for an answer. even when it's related to nick's job!
- has a standard going out order and will sometimes order his own meal: chicken nuggets, french fries, and chocolate milk. {i guess he needs to get it when he can because we don't eat those at home!}
- is a total lover. will snuggle and hug and give kisses when asked. and it's even better when he stops playing to come over and give me a big squeeze. nothing better!
- sang happy birthday to himself at his party!
- can still get him to do pretty much anything if we bribe him with chocolate. ;)
- has a momma and dadda who love him more every day and who he makes laugh every day, even at the most random times, like during a terrible tantrum... we can't help but laugh. he's so darn cute!

Happy Birthday Ben!
It'll be cool to look back on his interviews each year.
