Ben Turns Tee-yew!

Hard to believe it was 2 years ago that I was walking up a hill in the dark to Tenwek Hospital, where my sweet little boy was born less than an hour later.  But here we are!  I have a cute little 2 year old, with a head full of curly blond hair, a sweet smile, and a usually sunny but also determined temperament.  He loves cars, trucks, Nemo, and Lightening McQueen (keen!) and gives a great kiss as well as a great pouty look.  Ah, two.  We taught him how to hold up 2 fingers and say, "I'm two!" which comes out like "tee-yew."  So proud of himself.  And he has walked around the house singing happy birthday to himself for the past several days.

To celebrate, we just had our team over for owl cake and ice cream (Ben also loves his "hoo hoo.").  It was fun, and we were also able to skype/call family members to share in the celebration and open gifts.  Happy birthday, sweetie!
