Happy Happy Birthday to the Most Awesome Little Boy EVER

Today is my brother's birthday.

He is 6 years old!

Enjoying Pancakes Bigger Than His Face

He is the best little brother.  He is also the best big brother.  We have a sister (2) and he is so amazing with her. 

He is such a blessing to me!

I was an only child for most of my life. 

Every bedtime prayer, every birthday candle wish- was for a little brother or sister. 

I always figured God had other plans.  My parents divorced when I was 14.  I seemed destined to ride this out solo.

Then I moved away for college.  During my Christmas break freshman year my dad shares the news that he and his girlfriend were expecting!!

His estimated arrival was 8/22/2004.  I was home for Summer break but heading back to college very soon.  I waited and waited for his debut. 

He waited until I was back at school, an ocean away, to make his appearance.  I was able to meet him 3 months later during Thanksgiving break.

My brother is one of the sweetest kids I know.  He has always been there to make me smile and drive me crazy, usually all at the same time.

He has a love for Thomas the Tank Engine and his entourage, superheroes (especially Green Lantern, as of today), Transformers, and sweet surprises (ice cream, cookies, cake, etc...)

I thank God for answering my prayers and birthday wishes after all those years.  Seriously, 10+ years of the same request.  If there were any doubt that God answers prayers, I just remember this little guy and all the good times we have shared during his 6 years with us.  I can't wait to see what else God has in store for this little guy!!!

Happy happy birthday little brother!!!
