Very proud boy...and parents too!!

Our first day with a big boy potty, and we are 2 for 2.  Ben is LOVING his new potty and keeps going to sit on it and wave "bye-bye" when he shuts the lid.  It is the cutest thing, and of course we are SOOO proud of him!
Ben has really become such a fun little bundle of joy.  I've probably said this at every stage, but I definitely love the 18-ish month age.  He is so fun and understands so much and tries to help with everything we do.  He is great at laundry, less helpful at dishes, and loves to put away his toys.  We've been having a great time raising our little munchkin.  
He loves the new house.  We see deer everyday in our yard, and he loves to run hot laps throughout the house!  :)  He also  recently went to Chuck E Cheese and has discovered a new found love for slides.  His favorite is to go down a side-by-side slide with Mommy.  
He has quite the vocabulary nowadays....although we only sometimes understand any actual words!  He definitely LOVES the word "ball" and says it every time he sees one, even in books.  He also says "Ella" (Stella) all the time, doggy, kitty, mommy (a), daddy, night-night, and many others that I can't think of right now.  
Sorry it's been so long since an update.  I know the "we're busy" excuse is getting a little overused, but unfortunately it's true.  Every spare moment we have as a family is spent spending time together, so blogging usually doesn't get its face time.  
I hope everyone is well and thanks for checking our blog about our beautiful, smart, funny little boy  :)
