Pictures and Benjamin...

Isaac made these...

Isn't this pitiful?!!!  He was so distraught that I would be taking his photograph when he wanted out!

He still doesn't have much hair to speak of but oh, how I love that peach fuzz!

Benjamin is 13 months old now.  He still doesn't sleep through the night.  He does every once in a while but it never lasts longer than 5 or 6 nights.  He has started babbling a lot lately, it is so cute.  When we call for Isaac he mimics us.  He isn't walking but has stood alone for a few seconds.  He loves his Montessori toys and will sit there putting coins in the coin box or cylinders in holes for quite a while.  A spoon and cup will delight him as well.  His favorite thing to do though is spend time with his brothers.  He LOVES his brothers.  Which makes me think about the blessings of a large family.  Seeing my children loving each other, playing together, the older ones caring for the younger ones, brings me so much joy.  They love each other, we love them, and truly we can say with the Psalmist,

 "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.  Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands.  How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!"  Psalm 127:3-5
