Benjamin Jon is officially 2.5 years old!
Happy fractional birthday little Ben!
Ben is currently 29 pounds and 37 inches tall (click here to see averages). He has begun choosing what he wants to wear (usually his pirate ship shirt) and is fitting into some 3T shirts already with his 2T pants. He is very strong and active. Every day he gains pride in his new abilities, proclaiming, "I did it!". He loves to climb and then pretend to fall. He announces, "I'm falling!" and then giggles his head off all the way down.
Ben has a fantastic imagination and can busy himself happily with make believe and very few props. He really likes robots, rocket ships, airplanes, bugs, and animals. If you place a handful of objects in front of him, he will usually tell you how many there are. He likes to count while he plays. He calls Sophie's rawhide chews "dinosaur bones". He "buries" them in a cardboard box.
