5 & 18 months

Its funny how as a parent you say you will treat all of your kids equally.  Love them the same & take just as many pictures of your 2nd child as you did of your first.  Well none of that is true.  I treat Bennett like he's by toddler boy, and Jillian like shes a dainty girl.  I love Bennett so much because he has been apart of my life for 18 months.  It took a few months for me to learn to love Jillian as I loved Bennett because lets face it.  Newborns don't really give much back in terms of hugs, saying mommy, and smiles.  And well we all know by the time the 2nd child comes the first is running rampant that its a little more challenging to enjoy the small and simple moments with baby #2 thus less pictures are taken.

I love both my kids. This is true.

Here is us celebrating Jillian's 5th month of life with her first trip to the pool & a photoshoot.
