I'm a bit late on this (one week to be exact), but happy 9th birthday to my second son, Ben! 9 years....that marks halfway to 18. Such a bittersweet age. It also marks his entrance into tween-hood (goodness, I technically have two "tweens"! The teen years are just around the corner). Ben is awesome. I love that kid!! He is such a sweet, kind, funny, and thoughtful boy. Happy birthday to my Benny D.!
