I love using this hashtag on instagram because first of all, I LOVE matching these boys and second of all, I love seeing how many people in the world love matching their little boys too! What is it about matching that is so much fun?!? 

J was so excited about this round of matching, that he was willing to pose for a photo shoot with Dom--which is a difficult task these days. But he loved that his brother was sharing his love of all things trucks with him. 
Oh my heart. I love these boys. I was thinking about how a year ago I found out I was having boy, when I felt so strongly it was a girl. I tried not to be disappointed, and now looking back on that, I see how ridiculous that was, because this is the way it was meant to be! I love that these boys are close in age and that they are on their way to being best friends. It was always supposed to be that way.

Happy Friday!

Also, for your viewing pleasure, here are some other #matchingbrothers pictures.
Their first matching! Glad Dom has warmed up to it now :)

Six Months of Baby Dominic

I love this boy! His personality is so vibrant now.

^^he has such long skinny legs and feet!^^
 ^^modeling is exhausting^^

Wow six months! Since posting his four month update, we have really seen Dominic's personality become more apparent. This has been the magic month of really feeling like we know and understand Dom so much better.

It has been interesting getting to know this boy because his personality is so different than his brother's was as a baby. I know I shouldn't compare the two, but I can't help it because it's so fascinating to see. While J was a very easy to read baby and generally happy all the time, Dominic is a baby of extremes it feels like.

He sometimes is so needy, but he isn't stubborn. He is generally sleeping through the night--through the cry it out method which only takes a few minutes of crying--like less than ten. Not so with J. He doesn't fight naps either.

He gets upset easier, but is also easier to get to full on laugh. His laughter is the best. Classic baby whole hearted laughter. J would just grunt laugh haha.

He loves nothing more than being held and snuggling, but he also loves to roll around now playing with anything and everything.

Despite the extremes, he is the sweetest thing who loves his family. He thinks his brother is the funniest and he adores his papi. Here are two pictures showing two of his favorite things: his brother and kisses--open mouthed of course.

I love this baby stage. I love these beautiful boys!
