Easter and Chuck E Cheese

Hi everybody--hope things are going well in your neck of the woods!  C'mon Spring weather!!!
Here are some random pics of Ben...some from Easter, where he went on a very extended and exhausting Easter egg hunt through Grandma Tricia's house.  I've also put a video of him playing basketball with the new hoop he got from the Easter bunny.  Please excuse our disgusting house in the video---remodeling is not a pleasant thing.  :)
Ben's also been to visit Chuck E Cheese a couple times over the past month.  He really enjoys riding the rides, both for small kids and big!  I think his favorite, though, is the pizza.  Boy, he can sure wolf that stuff down!
It has been SOOO much fun watching him grow lately.  His is such a joy and keeps us laughing all day long.  He loves to point to your (and his) nose, followed by a cute "no".  He just can't seem to get the "se" at the end.  He also likes to point to your (and his) "beep-beep," code for bellybutton.  Today he burbled me on the belly too, and thought it was hilarious.  He is saying lots of words now---water, bubble, more, please, bye-bye pee pee, car.  More, I'm sure, but I can't think of them right now.  He's still going potty in the potty....every now and then. Maybe once a day at most, but he's still so young we're just excited that he's going at all!
Things are going well around here.  We are hoping to have a livable upper floor of our house in a couple weeks.  It's funny that I say it will be livable in a couple weeks but we've been living in it for 2 months.  Haha, NOT!  Ben has been a pretty good helper.  He LOVES to use tools and help Daddy.  He's a Harvey, that's for sure.  I've posted a video of him helping in the garage with a wheel barrow.  He was pushing all by himself--we weren't helping at all!!  What a big kid  :)
Enjoy the pictures and videos, and please post comments if you'd like.  :)
