What can I say about Ben.  He has been my buddy for the past couple of years.  When the older boys were off doing something, it was always just Ben and I hanging out.  We have spent endless hours playing Connect 4 and SpongeBob memory.  He was so excited when he realized we were having another baby.  He would finally get a chance to be the big brother.  We rearranged the rooms so that Ben and PJ would share.  He promised me he wouldn’t wake him up!!

When PJ was born and in the hospital Ben seemed a little scared.  Who could blame him?  PJ had tubes and wires hooked up all over him.

But ever since PJ came home from the hospital, Ben has worked very hard at being a good big brother.  He sits next to him in the car and plays with him while I drive.  When PJ starts to cry, it’s Ben that finds the pacifier and holds it in his mouth.  When PJ began to favor his hand over the pacifier, Ben would hold his fist to his mouth for him. He even tells me when PJ falls asleep in the car so I can turn the music down.  He lies down next to him on the playmat when he thinks I’m not watching.  He changes this voice and talks baby talk with Patrick.  He is always asking to hold him and loves to help give his baby brother a bath.  He is an excellent big brother!!!
