I'm kind of cheating because we are leaving today for IA for over a week and I will be missing from the blog world and I Really wanted to participate!
Day 5- Siblings
I'm the middle child of 5- and I absolutely LOVED growing up in a large family, probably the main reason why I want several more children!
Johan is my oldest brother, he takes after our father in that he is SO hardworking. He is also a chef like my dad, and he is one of the few people I know that LOVE their job so much. Being a workaholic is def. is his blood! He is the shyest of all of us, was always super protective of his siblings, especially his sisters. He is now a husband and also a father to a soon to be two year old girl. I'm lucky to call him my brother.
Camilla- my only sister, is 23 months younger than I am. We were only a grade apart, and had a love hate relationship. I hated that she always wanted to tag along with me and my friends- and would always steal my clothes. Now we are closer than ever- and I'm super proud of her. She graduated in May and is well on her way to becoming an amazing social worker. She loves kids so much, and Jasper is lucky to have her as an aunt.
Mitchell is the baby, but sadly no longer a baby. He is 17 and a Sr. in high school. He can at times be such a punk- and I know all of us can be super hard on him because we forget we were the exact same way in high school. He is very mature for his age- and when he became an uncle to Jasper at 14 he was amazing. We were living w. my mom for 6 weeks after J was born and every day he would wake up and come running up the stairs to see where his 'baby j' was.
