Big Brothers

I decided this post would be about Lily's big brothers Blake and Nick.

Blake will be turning 20 on July 23rd and is currently working for a construction company while going through his 4 year training program to become a carpenter. He works hard sometimes getting up at 4am to start off his 10 hr day. He is so amazing with Lily and she loves him so much, there are even nights after a long day of work he will watch her if I have a meeting to go to. So many evenings we will just hang out and the boys will entertain Lily, the music will be going and they will all be dancing around acting crazy. Lily loves for Blake to throw her in the air and raise her to the ceiling so she can crawl like spider man!! She also likes to see Blake jump and touch his toes, she thinks this is hilarious and also likes for him to be "the bridge" so she can climb under him.

Nick is 17 and is going to be a senior, he loves soccer and works part time for Verizon, think he is gonna be quit the salesman, he just won an envy2 phone and even gave it to me, what a kid!!! Nick also gives up some of his summer time to babysit for Lily. He always let's her sit on his lap while he is down loading music and they both just jam away. LOL Nick also as alot more energy then the rest of us, so Lily is thrilled when he plays chase or hide and seek throughout the house. Lily has had a special bond with Nick since gotcha day, she preferred him over me for the first several days in China, and he was wonderful with her.

I cannot tell you how proud I have been of them, they are so wonderful with their little sister and love her more then I could ever have dreamed of. Most nights even though Lily is in bed asleep they have to peek in to give her a little kiss goodnight, just warms my heart so much. It has been such a blessing to see this bond between them grown and I know one day they are going to be AMAZING dads!!!!!!

Lily is growing up so fast!!!

You gotta get on board quick with CVS!! I'm so shocked at the deals I am getting. I also found tons of deals for Wal-Mart listed here: The trick is you HAVE to save every coupon you come across. You never know when you might need it!! I'll be posting a picture tonight after I get back with all my loot. I'm obsessed with getting deals now!
