(not so) baby brother

The last week has been one of my favorite of the year. FOUR birthdays one week. For a girl who loves celebrating people as much as I do, it couldn't get much better.


Today, the kindest, sweetest, most loving and accident-prone boy I know turns 13. He has the biggest heart and I am so proud to call him my baby brother. Thirteen years ago our family was complete when he was born. Like I said yesterday, I prayed endlessly for a brother, but God knew I needed two of them.


Kale, never, ever change who you are. You're at an age where the world will try their darnedest to get you to change to be cool. Newsflash, buddy: you already are. You don't need to change a thing. You know what's right - stand up for it. You're silly. You're a little clumsy, but hey, you're my brother, so you come by it honestly :) You have a heart of pure gold and you, just like Kaden, are the kind of friend more people should try to be. Keep working hard at showing steers and playing basketball. I know you can do anything you set your mind on.

I love you, Kale Joe. Happy 13th birthday!
