Since there is 5 years between them I would let the 7 year old stay up a little more. For the 2 year old 7:30 is late enough. The 7 year old could go down around 7:30 but reading stories to him or letting him read or look at a book a little longer should be okay but lights should be out by 8 pm.

I put my kids to bed at 7:30 pm, they are 8 & 9, that may seem a bit early, but i allow them to stay up to read for 30 minutes (i believe this promotes a positive look on reading). if i were in your shoes i would put them both in bed at 7:30 pm, but explain that 7 yo bedtime isn't REALLY until 8 pm since he gets to read. but his BABY brother has to have lights off at 7:30pm
