The Schwartz's vs The Second Child Trials

Sometimes it's hard being the 2nd child.  While I worked really hard not to compare Sarah to other kids, with Cody I just can't seem to stop myself.  It seems like every time I open my mouth I'm comparing him to Sarah.  When Sarah was a baby I let her dictate the schedule changes.  Poor Cody, he just has to suck it up and get on board with the routine that Sarah and I have become quite accustomed to.  And oh how I've failed in the picture taking arena.

But every now and then being the 2nd child comes with some definite perks.  Like snack time leftovers.

Never in a million years when Sarah was 7 months old would I have given her chocolate goldfish cookies.  Nope.  Wouldn't have done it.  Period.  But Sarah's now 2.5 years old and so her snack yesterday was Smores Goldfish Cookies.  She didn't care for the chocolate ones.  So today at lunch to keep him happy in the high chair I plopped them on his tray.  I think he liked them!

Oh, and look who's working on using a sippy cup.

And what would a post be without Sarah.  She was a little jealous that I was snapping pictures of Cody and started saying, "take a picture of me!"  Well since she normally doesn't want me to take her picture I just couldn't pass that up!

Man I love Kid 1 and Kid 2.


  1. I can't wait to hear, in about 10 years, what you tell Cody when he asks why there are so many more pictures of Sarah. That will be a blog entry worth reading. :-)
