Lynn said...

oh I'm so glad you have this on tape, what a capture of pure LOVE!

I know exactly how your little bro feels, my sister & brother are 15 & 13 years older than me and were all moved out by the time I realized they existed ; )

The admiration & love you feel when you are the "baby" only grows and what I can tell you for sure is that now as adults we are so close and totally on the same page, like there isn't an age distinction at all, it's awesome! I think that will be one of your hugest testaments to how you ROCK a young soul inside because no matter what the chronological clock says you are Katie, you'll kick it's arse with glee!

Love your blog, it uplifts my day. You are truely adorable <3

The Kid In The Front Row said...

Well what can I say that the other 116 comments haven't said, apart from [rtjnbi[orgjnbiorgb[orwjiertj, which I'm sure nobody else has said - probably because it's a lesser known word.

Anyways, yeah, I'm with the others-- this is great; wonderful-- it's the moments like these that make life worth living.
