Happy 2 Year Birthday to Ethan and Bennett

(Shhh, don’t tell them that I posted this so late.)

On April 1st, 2009 Ethan and Bennett kicked off our active household introducing Two Became Four.  It is amazing how they have grown and how they are learning.  I really have enjoyed the past few weeks as their vocabulary has grown and they can put two words together.  Most the time it is “Milk-a please” but at least they say please.


Their love for Caillou prompted a fun present for their birthday.  Here is the video of them opening it.


Here are the stats from their 2 year appointment on Monday:


Weight = 25lbs 8 oz  20%

Height = 34 inches  45%

Head = 47.5 cm  30%


Weight = 25lbs 2 oz  20%

Height = 34 inches  45%

Head = 48 cm  40%


After a little present opening, we headed to the MOA for a little Nickelodeon chaos.  For those of you that have children with birthdays coming up, Nickelodeon land gives you a free unlimited wrist band for your child on the actual day of their birthday.  Don’t forget to pre-register on line (we didn’t and they weren’t happy with us) and also need the birth certificate.  The boys went on 4 rides and I think they liked the one that I had to put a dollar into the most.  They both got scared on Dora’s bus.  We pushed them till 9:00pm so we had some cranky kids by the end of the birthday. 


To our little boys,

I understand that you are going to destroy my house, but I know that you will make up for it with your smiles and unconditional love.  If not, then makers, crayons, and pens will remain off limits.  We are so happy to have two of the silliest boys in our family.   We wake up excited to see you each day, even on those rare occasions that you wake up at 6:30am on Saturday morning.  A day doesn’t go by that I catch your daddy adoring you “screwing around” and hear him comment, “man, I love those guys.”  I think about you at work and can’t wait to get home to see if there is something new that you have learned and might share with me.  Some of my favorites have been when Ethan learned to say “NO WAY” and Bennett pointed at the orange ball and said “basketball”.  Since the weather has started to get nice, it has been fun to watch you play outside and run around.  If you could just tone down the crying when it is time to come in that would be appreciated.  I promise to be the best mom that I can be even when I find my bobby pins and barrettes spilled all over the bathroom floor for the 100th time.

We love you both and thank God everyday for the joy you bring us!

xoxo, Mommy and Daddy
