Bennett turned four years old on Tuesday. Although we're sort of having a party for him on the Fourth, we had a little family celebration on his actual birthday. His requests for the day were: crepes for breakfast, a trip to Target, and the Splash park. We rounded off the afternoon with cake of course.
At four years old, this boy keeps us in stitches. He is smart, funny, and currently obsessed with dinosaurs. He can name more dinosaurs than I ever could, and also identify whether they were carnivores or herbivores. "Actually, he had bony plates to protect himself." Say what?!
He is very excited to begin preschool in the Fall, and loves any social outing. it's definitely bittersweet to have my baby turning four. He is my first-born, he made me a mom. Four seems quite mature all of a sudden. Proud of all his growth, yet nostalgic for the baby boy I nursed in the wee hours.
I love you Benny Boy, Happy Birthday.
