My Sweet Boys

I adore Keaton & Benjamin being so close in age. I really do. The transition from 1 to 2 was seamless. Keaton has NEVER purposefully hurt B (he's never HURT him, startled him, every day, haha!) Keaton has been so sweet with B from day one. Always wanting to be where he is, see what he's doing, help out. He always has to be touching B - which I think B loves, because he is very 'touch-oriented' (MUCH unlike free-spirited, always on the go, leave me alone, Keaton).

I hope to have Zach help me figure out how to upload a picture from my cell phone that I took a couple weeks back. It is SO sweet! (If I can't figure it out, I'll share in detail what it is)

But this morning, we were driving around, looking at houses and B was very fussy (he was trying to see me over the back of his car seat - apparently, the mirror isn't good enough!) Keaton was rubbing B's hand saying, "It OK....K B...It OK...." The hysterical part was, Keaton wasn't even looking at Benjamin, he was watching trees and trucks (two of the best things. ever.)

Yesterday, B was super fussy and finally after not wanting to nap in his crib, he fell asleep on me. I really needed Keaton to stay quiet to allow B a sufficient nap, so I turned on PBS, knowing that would buy me atleast 30 mins. I was patting B's butt whenever he stirred and once he cried out, stirred and went back to sleep. I once again patted B's butt to soothe him and Keaton reached over and started rubbing his back...He just kept looking at me with this huge grin :)

That is super sweet! Aww. I miss your boys (and you, of course!). Sophie wouldn't nap in her crib either (or her pack in play, or the bouncy...).

PS- BG's are WAY better than pre-folds!
