Ben loves his numbers. He always has. Today is his squared birthday; he is now 25 (which is 5 x 5). He's very excited. Here is a little number tribute to my favorite mathematician!
1. He is a goody-two-shoes. Meaning he does his best to always do what is right. I couldn't be prouder.
2. He is an eternal optimist. When Ben first asked me out and Iwas telling my then-roommate Tiffanie about it, she said, "Now, which one is he?" And I replied, "Ben Lewis, the smiley one." She knew exactly who I meant. And that's who he is.
3. He is incredibly hard working. These past few months have been challenging, but Ben has put in every ounce of effort he has to provide for our little family, frequently working 14 hour days between teaching and tutoring. He's amazing.
4. He's a great father. He is always willing to change Eleanor's diapers and plays with her every chance he gets. He loves to get her out of her crib when she wakes up from naps and love her while I prepare to feed her.
Happy Squared Birthday!
