Happy Hump Day everyone!
On Wednesdays I usually blog about something completely random, Can’t Believes, Confessions, etc. Well here’s something I both can’t believe and is a confession: I can’t believe my little brother will be 21 this fall!! This week I am proud to blog about my little brother. Last night was his college’s athletic awards ceremony and he won MVP of the year for his college tennis team. (He’s the captain.) It was streaming live so my mom and I were able to “be there” even though he’s in Virginia. My brother comes home from college next week and in honor of his return and his award, today’s post is inspired by my favourite Amanda/Zach pictures.
As kids, Zach and I fought like crazy. Seriously. We were those kids. His favourite pastime was irritating me. But then we also liked playing together. Our favourite game was zipping the other one up inside a suitcase and then pushing the suitcase down the stairs. We called it “Earthquake”. It’s actually amazing that neither of us have brain damage.
(The first time I ever saw him. If only I knew the horror to come. With my grandma )
(He was the fattest baby in the entire world. Seriously, he weighed over 10lbs at birth.
I tell friends how FAT he was and no one ever believes me. Now they will.
His nickname was “Butterball” for the first few years of life.
Not that I can talk. Look at those cheeks.)
(I honestly have no idea why he’s wearing a tux. But I like it.
Confession time: He LOVED playing dress up with me when we were kids.)
(His first day of school. He grew into his ears. I stopped wearing overalls.
If you look closely I am reading “The Little Princess”.
Did anyone else get a copy of the locket after the movie came out?)
(That poor cat. We had to give him away (the cat, not my brother) because it turned out I was allergic.)
(He was perfecting the B-boy stance before it even existed.)
(Zach and me in the Flying Teacups at DisneyWorld.
I was 12 and he was 8.)
(Fast forward a million years to Fall 2011 when I helped him move into his dorm room!)
(This Spring. Holy &*!# What happened to my little brother?!?
I cropped the other people out of this photo because I totally just creeped it from Facebook so I didn’t feel right displaying their faces on the Internet. Also he’s like 6’2” which is ridiculous.)
