When Ben eats a doughnut...he carefully preserves proper frosting distribution. Ensuring each bite has a good amount of the sweet frosting. Making for an overall delicious, enjoyable, and satisfying doughnut experience...
Annabella, on the other hand, eats the frosting off the top being careful to get as little actual doughnut as possible. Once the frosting has been haphazardly removed and savored she asks for another doughnut and starts again....
This so completely shows the differences in their personalities. Everything you need to know about Ben and Anna....and how they differ can be inferred from their doughnut eating....truly.
BTW, you can see above that Ben got glasses! Doesn't he look handsome and like a smartypants????
He failed his vision test at the pediatrician's office and so we were referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist. We discovered there that Ben has a pretty serious case of Amblyopia . He is 20/40 in his good eye and 20/200 in his bad eye (basically legally blind in his bad eye). Profound. I had some suspicions that maybe he needed glasses but certainly was really shocked at the findings. We also found out he is color blind! This actually didn't surprise us either. My dad is color blind and where Ben can identify his colors without issue he would sometimes confuse colors or be unable to distinguish shades within a color etc. So we go for a follow up in May at which time we will likely start patching his good eye to strengthen the bad eye.

Mostly just home...being super heroes...Thundercats and My Little Pony are the characters of the day..
Celebrating birthdays with special yummy breakfasts....the FIVE for Ben!
Gaining new skills....when Cheerios are at stake ingenuity takes over with this one. She pushed that blue bench over, climbed up it and then onto the bench and was shoving fistfuls of Cheerios into her mouth.
