My "Little" Brother - {Happy Birthday!}

fifteen years ago my baby brother, joshua, came into this world at a whopping 9lbs. 5oz. beating my own birth weight by 1oz!  he had long beautiful eyelashes, sky blue eyes, and a head full of bright red hair. people were amazed that one woman had officially given birth to not 1... not 2... but 3 redheads!

brother and sister

i was one month shy of 13 years old when my sister was born, and about 3 months shy of 15 years old when my brother was born.  having a little boy in the house was a whole new ball game.  contrary to the picture on the left, this kid practically came out of the womb running and climbing.  he's always been a natural athlete and these days he plays high school soccer and volleyball.

although he towers over me at about 6' tall, he will forever be my baby brother. i will never forget that sweet little voice and his precious little face.  i still have voice mails he left me from 2004, and they melt my heart every time i listen to them.

now he's growing into a charismatic young man with an amazing spirit and a caring heart.  i look forward to watching him live life to its fullest, and i can't wait to see what the future has in store for this kid.
