Growing Brothers


These little babies started High School today.

My eyes are tearing up as I type this (the fact that I had a super long day and am really tired, are also contributing to the tears), because I remember the minutes that they were born. I was there.

They aren't babies anymore. At all. In fact they are both at least four inches taller than me.

I remember when they were little, laying in my bed at night, thinking about how much I loved them. I remember thinking about how I hoped that they would grow up to be good people and to make good choices. I hoped that they would be smart and friendly.

And it's weird, because now, they are good people, and they are smart and friendly. They are so much fun to be around. And when they're with me they're helpful and loving. And they LOVE Reagan, and I love to watch them with her.

It's hard because I still think of them as ten year olds, (and maybe sometimes I treat them like that too) but I remember how big I felt when I started High School. I felt so grown up. And I can't believe they're High Schoolers now too. So huge. And grown up.

Eight years is a big age difference, but it's fun that as they get older that gap seems to get smaller, and soon they'll be going on missions, and to college, and getting married, and having their own babies. And I can't help but imagine how fun it will be to watch all of those things happen, just like watching these past 14 years has been fun.

I love these little babies. Good luck in High School!


  1. Yes, Corina, I remember all those things about you, too. Thank you for posting your thoughts. I have tears in my eyes too. Love you all so much.
