Today our baby boy turns 8 (I guess he is not so much a baby any more)! I can't believe it has been 8 years since we became parents. What an amazing day it was when he was born!! Today we celebrate him and what an amazing young man he is becoming.
He continues to flourish in school. Second grade has been a challenge at times but he does great. He excels at math and reading. Books are always in his hand. He reads on a 5th-6th grade reading level. Science and history are his favorite things to research. He loves anything related to wars. It is so much fun to see his interests develop and change.
Ben is a growing guy. He is up to 68 pounds and 52 inches. He remains super healthy other than his seasonal allergies. He has become a great eater in the last year. He will try just about anything you put in front of him. He may not like it but will try. Vegetables, fruits, meats , milk are all favorites. Ben's choice of clothing is always athletic pants or shorts and a t shirt. He will put on nicer clothes when we ask but he always quickly changes back into his "uniform."
