haPPy biRtHdaY tAyLoR!


Today is my baby brother's 14th birthday-I guess he isn't a baby anymore:) I was a teenager when my youngest brothers were born and I loved these boys like they were my own. I loved helping my Mom take care of them- burping them, changing their diapers, playing with them, taking them to parks, Chuck E. Cheese, McDonald's, etc. I loved spending time with them and watching them learn and grow. It prepared me for motherhood in so many ways and I'm grateful for the skills I learned through it all.


Taylor was our silly little guy. He loved to laugh. He still does. He loved to joke. He still does. He loved video games. He still does. He was sweet and so loving. He still is.


I love you Taylor and hope you have a great birthday today. I'm sad I'm not there with you to help you celebrate your birthdays anymore:( But I hope you'll eat an extra piece of Mom's cake for me. Or mail it to me. Either one.

Happy Birthday Taylor!!!

Geez......I remember when he was born, when you guys lived in the rent house before your house was built. Seems like forever ago.

You and your sister were such a big help with the boys when they were little. I don't know how we would have done it without you. We didn't have to get a babysitter because you guys were always willing and able. Can you believe Taylor is 14 now? My how time passes.
