Brothers...

I love how my boys all love each other. Josiah will try to bring Gavin something home from school each day, whether it is a rock, a leftover piece of his afternoon snack or simply a picture from school. Both Gavin and Josiah watch out for Gunner, their eagle-eye watching usually taking the form of yanking some object deemed "unsuitable" from his hands amid shouts, squeals and cries. Gunner is sad when his big brothers aren't with him and so excited when they come home. They truly love one another. Don't get me wrong, my boys are rough and tough and do not hesitate to throw balls at the others' head and tackle each other on a whim. Yet despite all that, they are best friends. I love their camaraderie. I hope this love will extend to their little sister. I want them to be her friend as well as her protector. Well...maybe not too protective...Kit is already feeling sorry of the guy who thinks he'll be worthy to date her. Three big brothers and one big Daddy is an awful lot of testosterone to contend with. ;)




You did read correctly...kinda hard to believe, but it is true...

Congratulations! You must be so excited. Same for the boys. I can't wait to see what she will look like. I bet the color of her hair will be so pretty.

Ooo, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as the youngest of 5 kids with 4 older brothers, I had to be a tough girl because I got picked on SO MUCH! My brothers were the bane of my existence!

Of course, hopefully your boys won't be so bad. ;) I'm so excited for you! Have fun with all things girly!
