big girls are beautiful.

Ruthie, Afton and I had our first shower!

This shower was special, because it was thrown by my younger sister's soccer and school friends - girls that I have watched grow up for the past 9 years and become beautiful young ladies ready to enter high school - and their hilarious and caring moms. These little girls started out knee-high in kindergarten, and most of them are now taller than I am!


My sister Caitlin was born when I was 13 years old, and I remember it like it was yesterday. Finding out about the "surprise" was a shock but she has brought such joy into our family and we can't imagine our life without her. Now she's getting ready to start high school...and she is the same age I was when I found out about her.


I can't wait for my sister to be involved and play a huge part of my girls' lives. I loved cuddling baby Caitlin, helping my mom take care of her, being there for the first day school, watching her in school plays and on the soccer team...and now she's going to be doing the same with Ruth and Afton. These will be some blessed little girls.

The most memorable part of the shower was the dance that the girls choreographed and put on for me, set to the song "Big Girls are Beautiful." It was absolutely hilarious.

Caitlin is on the far right...I'm the "big girl" in the middle.

  1. Cute! Glad you had a fun time. I didn't know your sister was so much younger than you. What a neat story!
