Big Brothers

I grew up with a big brother. Much older. 12 years.
He was the best. 
I was basically an only child with benefits. 
Benefits including a built-in babysitter who could take you to cool places. Including NYC for your 16th birthday. oh yeah.
Still I always wished for a sister.
Not sure why. She would probably just have annoyed me and stole all my clothes.

Ms. Ava is a lucky girl.
She has a big sister. And a big brother.
It took a while for our Julian to warm up to the idea of another baby. A female one specifically.
But now, I don't think he would change her for the world.

And funny enough, he is her very favorite.
He who makes her laugh more than anyone.
He who is rougher than I would prefer.

She doesn't seem to mind.

I know she will look up to him for years to come.
Just like I still do.
Love you bro.


  1. Little Miss Ava is truly blessed, as the eldest in our family .. oh how I longed to have an older sibling - especially after being the only child for almost 8 years. Wishing you a beautiful day!! Hugs, C. (HHL)

  2. Very sweet. I have a big brother and sister. I love them both but I've always had a closer relationship with my brother. Ava is a lucky girl.

  3. Ava is lucky to have a brother and sister! They both look so cute! Julian looks like a great big bro!

  4. I am 10 years older than my sister and 15 years older than my brother . I thought my sister was going to be my personal baby doll so not the case lol.

  5. My eldest son was 12 when my first daughter was born. I hope they end up with a relationship like you and your brother. It sounds wonderful.

  6. That is too adorable. I'm the oldest of 5 and there are 12 years difference between me and the baby.
    I'm like his second mom ;)

  7. I grew up with a big brother, too. 11 years older. It was like having a cool uncle. He was so protective of me and sweet. :) And he liked to tickle me until I told him what he was getting for his birthday. :)

  8. I have a little brother, but most of the time he likes to act like he's my older brother...very protective! They are both very lucky to have each other! :)

  9. found you through voiceboks! Stopping by to say hi. I left the corporate world last year February to be a SAHM. It's quite the adjustment, no? Happy to follow you.

  10. He will be stealing a few hearts one of these days. I also had an older brother, but only by 2 years. He was a real pain, but I still love him. (I always wanted a sister too.)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  11. Sweet pics!!! I'm happy Milton is older than Ginger too. I'm hoping he'll look out for her a little!!!!!

  12. So sweet! Big brothers are the best! :)

  13. Ava is one lucky girl. She has a great big brother and sister to look up to.

  14. i've said this before...but those eyes! beautiful eyes. my daughter wanted a younger sister. she got a brother instead. told her at least she wouldn't have to share her "girly" things. brother just takes them instead, lol.
