Crew Benjamin: 2.5 Year Update:

Happy Half Birthday to our baby boy {a couple days late}

I can't believe we are that much closer to having a three year old guys! Crew has truly grown so much since turning Two. So many people have mentioned how tall he has gotten and how grown he looks {he has always been a big boy but for some reason he just truly seems like a little man right now}. He loves everything outside and dirt related, playing with sticks, running, wrestling, playing rough, but it still the biggest snuggler and love. I pray that never changes and that he will always need me and want me to curl up next to him.

So many changes have happened recently that really don't make him a "baby" anymore and I can't tell you how hard it has been to watch these milestones knowing they will be the very last time we will ever go through them. {Things I haven't blogged about but I promise will get to when I can}... Crew decided to potty train himself back in November. He is still a work in progress {much different than his sisters 2 days of potty training and no accidents, diapers, etc since}, but we also know he is a very different child. He has so many accident free days but then gets lazy, but lets be honest here, mommy has been pretty sick recently and hasn't been able to give it 100% either, so there's that. He hasn't been in diapers though since November and we are so proud of him every single day! Then there's the No More Crib thing going on. He has been in his big boy bed for a week now and loves it. He truly is growing up right before our very eyes. 

We love you son and love watching you grow and learn with each new day! Keep being you!

Crew's Stats:
*Height: 38 inches
*Weight: 37 lbs
*Teeth: We are still waiting for 2 more molars to pop through.
*Clothes: Anywhere between a 2T and a 4T 
*Sleep: bedtime: 7:30PM- 7:30AM
nap time: now with his bed this has become an issue... He still sleeps most days but other days I find him in his bed with books which is fine. 
*Food: He has become a pretty picky eater recently... ugh... we never had this issue with Charli. He loves all fruit, his favorite veggies are peas, corn, and broccoli, he loves hotdogs, raisins, yogurt, bananas, humus, peanut butter, milk, milk, and more milk.
*Some things he loves: He loves going to friends houses and when we have play dates. I am actually really looking forward to Charli being in Kindergarten this coming year and having one year of just mommy/Crew time. He needs it. He loves sleepovers at Nana & Papa's, anything outside or dirt related, his favorite toys are still cars, trucks, and trains, though I like to say he is a momma's boy his favorite person is by far his daddy! And his new found hobby is peeing {and pooping} in the grass... 

Happy Half Birthday Crew Benjamin! 
We love you so much and still can't believe you are 2 1/2!
