Ben's 6th Birthday

Happy birthday Ben! 

Your birthday was on February 1st and I am just getting around to writing about it. You had a great birthday. You received gifts that you loved: books and a Wii system (used, old generation...but at this point you don't notice the difference!) and a few Wii games. You spent time with friends doing the things you love: swimming at the pool and then going to their house to watch movies. 

You are a joy to have as a son. You are mellow, happy, hard-working. You are honest. You are a good friend to your brother. And you are a good big brother to your little sister, instinctively looking out for her and knowing just how to play with her to make her laugh. 

Some excerpts from Ben's birthday interview: 

What do you want to do for a job when you grow up?  
Be a daddy. Work at Oracle.

Where do you want to live when you grow up?  
In New York City.

Do you think you’ll get married when you grow up?

How old will you be when you get married?

Where do babies come from?
That’s a horrible question. I’m not going to answer it.

What do you love most about your siblings? 
Tommy: He’s always kind of nice to me.
Lucy: She’s very very cute.

What makes you very happy?
Having a little sister.
