Happy 7th Birthday, Ben!

Happy 7th birthday, buddy! I am so happy to have you as my son. You make us smile every day with your happy spirit and easy-going nature.

Here's all about you this year:

You like being cozy. You will wrap yourself up in a blanket and sit on top of our heater vent, soaking in the warm air. 

You usually sleep with a few blankets on, and you pull one over your head, so that it's hard to find you in the sea of blankets in your bed.

When people meet you, the most common thing they observe about you is that you are so sweet. You have a way of being interested in people and making them feel appreciated and comfortable. 

You love your sisters. You'll do just about anything to make them laugh. You love to play with Lucy, who especially appreciates your antics. 

You recently started reading chapter books. But your favorite thing to read is Garfield comics.

You love playing with Legos. You make creative and funny scenes using your Legos.

You love sports, and you're naturally amazing at them. You can pick up a ball and score a basket, make a goal, hit a bat, even if you'd never done it before. In Taekwondo a few weeks ago you performed an almost-perfect flying roundhouse kick, after just watching your teacher's demonstration. 

We love you Ben! We can't wait to see what this new year brings you!
