I can't believe it!

My sweet Bennett Grey! I can't believe he just turned 2! It really seems like yesterday that I was in the hospital waiting his arrival. After 5 very long weeks of bed rest in the Hospital, He finally came! We were all so excited and thankful that this little trooper made it here safely. Even tho he was in the NICU for almost 6 weeks, I knew he would be just fine. He has been my light. I seriously love him more than words can describe. He has come such a long way over the past 2 years. There have been ups and downs just like any child may have, but he is so strong.

this is one of my favorite pictures from when he was born. The soothie looks so big, but it is really just the small baby behind it. He would always have such a strong hold on his soothie.
His first year went by so fast. Before I knew it, he was one!
kept on growing.....

and now he is TWO!

He had so much fun on his 2nd birthday! We decided to keep it small and just do dinner at Peter Piper Pizza. we made sport themed treats and cake. With 2 older brothers, he is not used to being the center of attention, so he was in heaven :) He got so many fun gifts that will keep him busy for a pretty long time!
He really liked his Football cake. He had no idea what to do to the candles so his older cousins had to help him out with that.
My parents got him this lighting McQueen that he calls "Kachow" He rides it all over the house
sweet boy!

Like I said earlier, Grey is so special. He continues to be a huge light in my life. Now that the older boys are in school, he gets to be my little buddy. We both enjoy it. Unless you have been around this kid, you can't understand how good he is. He is so easy going and really never gives us a hard time.
He is into Elmo, Mickey (he calls mickey "hotdog"), ALL cars, and he LOVES horses!
He has been coming along so well with therapy. He has it 4 times a week and all his therapist are great. He gets so excited when he hears on knock on the door because he knows that it is most likely a therapist.
His facial expressions are HILARIOUS. He is so expressive and animated. He is a very good listener, so he is fun to teach.
Grey, We wish you a VERY happy birthday! I am sure before I know it, you will be 3! Thank you for being such an angel in our family! We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
