don't feel sorry for him, he's okay with it

Just like being the oldest, there are advantages and disadvantages to being the youngest kid in the family.

Advantages: There's plenty of entertainment if mom's too busy to play with you, there are more people in the family that dote on you and constantly tell you how cute you are, you learn patience at a very young age, and mom and dad are a little more relaxed into parenthood by the time you come along.

Disadvantages: Why dwell on the negatives? All I'll say is, I'm pretty sure when Alexis was a baby she never had a sticker stuck to her forehead for several hours because some kid stuck it there and then mom was too busy to take it off.

I'm thinking of creating a special folder in my pictures file entitled "You can tell I have older siblings...". This picture could also go in there.

(In case you were wondering, I did jinx myself by going on and on about Ryan sleeping well. A few days after writing that he developed croup and hasn't slept well ever since. I think he's finally starting to get over it, but I'm not going to talk about that at all. I've learned my lesson.)

I think I need one of those files for Lindsey. These pictures are a hoot!

Alexis is looking so grown up!
