growing up with big brothers

If they are eating anywhere but the table, they have to stand up…otherwise their food is considered fair game to her.

“Dear God, thank you for giving me two little brothers that are silly and make me laugh.

Thank you for giving me a little sister that is tough and doesn’t even cry when we step on her hands. Amen.” Biggest Brother, 6.

  • kristiina - What a lucky little girl! The boys are lucky, too πŸ˜‰

  • Corey Moortgat - Your photos look like my house around here. My 9 month old daughter has two older brothers as well. I’ve got so many cute girl toys for her, yet she goes for the monster trucks and hotwheels since that’s what her brothers are playing with! I guess it’s inevitable, although I sure hope she finds her girly side eventually- I need a playmate,too!

  • raychel - ADORABLE pictures. You have beautiful children! I am an only girl with 6 brothers, and had a blast growing up! Seeing these pictures makes me think back to my childhood so much! Your daughter will grow up to be one tough cookie!!

  • Alba - Amen! whenever you have finised the Biggest Brother Bible, please, send me a copy!

  • Tess S. - biggest brother just made this momma cry. not hard.. considering this pregnancy makes me cry over everything.

    my sweet little boy will be 2 in september and only says 3 or 4 words. last night for the first time after saying grace before dinner he said “amen” and again after prayers before bed time. that’s the stuff that makes your heart melt.

  • Katie H. - I am going to have to agree with the previous comments about her not being able to date with those big brothers around.

    You may not know this Ashley, but my first ever formal dance “sophmore semi-formal” I went with Chris, because I didn’t like the other options Robert had for me.
