It's 10:15 PM, usually about the only time to blog.....even though it's my bed time. Yep, that's a typical day with a VERY energetic almost 2 year old and a 2 month old. I first have a story to tell about A BIG SQUEEZE: So, after coming home from the hospital, I was so excited to see Roman. I REALLY missed him in the hospital! But Roman was very distant from me. I tried to read to him, but he wouldn't let me. He would take the book to dad instead. I was sad, because I have been so used to having one on one time with him every day. I think he just saw me bonding with Bennett and that was his way of dealing with it. But finally after a few days, I put him to bed. I rocked him and read him some stories and when it was time to lay him in his bed, I gave him a hug. Roman gave me the biggest squeeze back and we just stood there holding each other as tears were coming down my face. My little Roman is not a hugger or cuddler, so this moment was a long time coming. It's moments like these that make it all worth while. I will NEVER EVER forget this. I love my Roman.
Okay, so now we can move on:)
Wow, I have to say Brother Roman is still not sure what to think of little Benny boy. It took him a few weeks before we could get him to hold Bennett. He often likes to get up in his face and say "Hi-eeeeeeee"! He means well, but tends to smother and when Roman gets near him, Bennett usually knows.....and doesn't like it . Haha! But Roman knows his name and likes to call him "Benny". I can't wait until they start playing together!
Look at his smile!
Bennett had to lay on the Billy light for his Jaundice for 3-4 days.

Roman 22 months:
loves to jibber jabber (wish I knew what he was saying!), loves cars, trucks, airplanes, skateboards, bikes, books, movies, dancing ("HAPPY DANCE"!), diet coke, putting everything on his head (he thinks everything is a hat!), his cousins, bath time.
Mr. Roman can't put down his new motorcycle.
Watching another movie. Currently his favorite is "Shrek". Also loves Yo Gabba Gabba and Caillou.
This ear thing is hilarious. He covers his ears if he is afraid of something. Loud noises, people, anything!

BENNETT - 1 MONTH OLD
BENNETT AT 2 MONTHS:
Bennett loves to be held! He is a very different baby than Roman was. Roman just wanted to be swaddled and layed down with his binky. I love that I can snuggle him so much! Well, as much as Roman will let me:) He LOVES it when you talk to him. He will smile and coo back.
Roman loves his cousin, Hailey. He starts dancing and spinning around with excitement when she comes. So adorable.
