Throwback Thursday #3

Brothers and sisters- Part 1
I was not even a year old when my Middle Brother was born. Mom used to feel sorry for me because I wasn't weaned from my bottle yet and I'd go to the fridge when no one was looking and steal Middle Brother's bottle! Mom would see me scurrying to my bedroom and find me on my bed with Middle Brother's bottle. LOL!

Baby Bro came 9 years later. Back then, I was an over-protective older sister and would cry when anyone even came near my brother. Middle Brother used to follow me everywhere and we were really close when we were kids. We had a really great childhood. We weren't so close in high school and in early adulthood. Now that we're both married and he has a child of his own, we're close again. Middle Brother has a heart of gold and will do anything for his loved ones. Although even now, moments of sibling rivalry occasionally reappear (I know...Sad since we're in our 30's!), I love Middle Brother and I am so proud of all his accomplishments. He is truly a great guy. Can you tell we grew up in the 70's and 80's?

Middle Brother's baptism. I was crying because I didn't want anyone to touch him! LOL!

I remember this photo as if it were taken just yesterday. My mom put me in Middle Brother's crib and wanted to take some cute photos. She propped him up and made me hold him, and I remember saying, "Mama! Hurry! Hurry! He's heavy!" LOL! I still remember feeling him slipping and drooling all over my hand! :)

Next Throwback Thursday: Brothers and sister- Part 2 (featuring Baby Bro).

You two look EXTREMELY cute! And yes, I could tell you grew up in the 70's and 80's since that's when I grew up and my childhood pics have THAT look...

AnnieM said...

Looks like me baby pics too since I am a 70's baby too. That's crazy you can remember what is going on in that picture of you and your bro. You guys are adorable.

LOL! Funny how you can tell the decade a person grew up in by the pics having "that look"! :) You should start Throwback Thursdays too! I bet you were a cute baby too!

Yeah, it is crazy that I can remember that exact moment the pic was taken! I was really young there! I can remember a lot about my childhood, though my mom tells me that the stories are sometimes a little bit off! LOL!
