Ben Henry

I know yesterday's post was all about Eli's birthday party.
But Ben Henry deserves his own post too!
I am so loving him lately!

How can you not love this face?
waiting to eat mawmaw's birthday cake- think he's excited?

He is sometimes a handful, but its totally worth it!
I read a quote that being with a two year old is like turning on a blender with no lid!
Yeah, that kinda sums up Ben Henry!

He is talking more than ever and is the SWEETEST boy when he wants to me.
I love all the rituals we have.
Every morning when he wakes up and asks me where each person in our family is,
 then last he ask where his {girl}friend  Chlo Chlo is?
I tell him every morning she is with "Aunt Jenny."
He makes this silly noise and says very loudly- Oh Chlo Chlo, no Aunt Jenny, Ben Henry.
I think he misses his girl ;)

Each night after his bath, I wrap him in a towel and bring him into his room and dress him in his PJ's.
As soon as I wrap him in a towel he starts calling out songs for me to sing.
Elmo's World, Old McDonald, Rock a Bye Baby.
As soon as I am finished lotioning him up, he stands up, asks All done?
Then tilts his head and says Hug Mommy?

Makes listening to he and Eli screaming in the bathtub worth it!

I knew I had to write I post totally dedicated to Ben Henry today when
 he walked into the kitchen looked at our counter,
threw up his hands, and looked at me with all seriousness,
and asked,
"Aww Man, Where's the cake?"

He thought the cake would be left over and still on the counter from the birthday party.
Silly boy!

Happy Thursday Y'all

  1. Hi, coming over from Cassie's bloghop. Your little boy is adorable!
    Do visit me when you get the chance!

  2. I love Ben Henry! Aka Fred Aka Whoo Whoo. Give that boy cake!!! When Adam was two (and cute) I used to lotion him up after his bath. Every night I'd tell him I have to keep you moist and he'd say "and meaty so you can eat me up?"

  3. Way to cute! I'm part time nanny for a 2yr old and it's the same thing, but I love it :)

  4. This is so sweet! What a precious boy and such wonderful moments to savor! I'm so glad you linked up to the Mommy-Brain Mixer, friend! I hope to see you again next week! :)
