Funny how time passes. It was 13 years ago today we got the call that my godson Jack had been born. Kate and Mike who were married 6 mos before Shad and I had also lead the way with the first child. Kate and I had discussed names at length. We both loved the name Jack. I believe we agreed on first boy gets it and I also had my heart on using my maiden name, Reilly, when our special day came.
Today I received this message from my sister: “ok your job is to make me smile (no pressure) tomorrow I will have been a Mom for 13 years… my heart feels many things right now and the ONE thing that can make it feel lighter 😉 is to make sure SHEA SHEA has an unbelievably AWFUL outfit on tomorrow with headline JTC… yup I think that would help me… no pressure.”

Big Brother

Chilin with my Big Brother

Reilly is a great big brother. Over the last several weeks I have watched him transition from a boss to a friend with Kate. The two of them are not at each others throats all the time, they actually play together. They make up games and use their imaginations and chase each other around the house. It’s so nice to see them interacting in this way. Kate WANTS someone to play with so she has adjusted from her dolls and kitchen and can be found driving a LEGO truck around the house and crashing it into a wall. She listens to Reilly and I can see that she looks up to him. It’s so cool.

He often picks her up out of her crib and sends her downstairs to us. He likes being the little man in the house. I love the way he looks after the two of them and I’m so happy they have a big brother like Reilly. He is a sweetheart and full of love.
