Our #2 Son

Benjamin getting ready to hop on his bike. If Danny can ride without training wheels, so can he! (Not quite yet!)
This is 3 year old Benji. Our baby. Sometimes I think of him as an "old soul" though. It's like when he looks at you with those piercing blue eyes, it seems like he can look right through you. He is also very empathetic and picks up very quickly on when other people are upset. Nice boy he is, he always tries to make it all better. (Except when fighting with his brother. Then there is not a whole lot of empathy!)

He sometimes hates that he is the baby. Whenever his older brother masters something like riding a bike or getting something off a high shelf, Benji figures it's time for him to be able to do the same thing. And it's shocking sometimes how much he can do at his tender age.

Yes, he's growing fast, but in some ways, this is the perfect age. He gets to be a "big boy" and go to school and run and play, but then there are those precious times when he curls up in our arms and he is, for a few sweet moments, our little baby again. Not sure how much longer that will last, but I'm going to cherish it.

Our little superhero, AKA, Benji-MAN!
