The first thing you need to know about me, she said, is that I grew up with two older brothers...

What a beautiful tableau! I love the simpleness that is siblinghood. My oldest two, older than my third by ten years, used to do this very thing to him, although he was always sandwiched in a large blanket.

So sweet! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.
Smiles!

Lisa Page Rosenberg said...

I love these sweet photos.

Terresa said...

This quote by Alex Haley comes to mind about now,

"In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past, a bridge to our future."

Yes. Siblinghood rocks.

This looks like a happy team... that could wreck some serious mischief.

I wonder who took these pictures? There is something in them that characterizes great pictures, the quality of snapping a pure moment that seems undiluted with artifice.
Thanks for sharing.

Lucky Lola. Lucky brothers.

Beth said...

Lucky, lucky girl - doubly blessed.
I always wanted a big brother.

michelle said...

Wish I'd had big brothers...

Lola and Mia are lucky girls

Rachael said...

Those are great pictures.

Can you just imagine her as an adult pulling those out of a box somewhere and smiling.

Kass said...

What a beautiful, fun photo essay.

Cop Mama said...

Oh yes, those older brothers! Adorable pics.

Still Life With Coffee said...

oh yes... I would have to say that having two big brothers is a beautiful and defining force in my little girl's life. I love those pictures of your kiddos. Lucky lucky little sister.

What a perfect post. It made me smile. Have a great day!

Allegra Smith said...

Who obviously love her to bits and the feeling is mutual. I so wanted my entire life to have a brother...

Allison the Meep said...

Oh, that was so sweet, the whole progression. It's so cute how things got taken a bit too far and there were tears, but big brother hugs make things better.

Also, I love how your grass is long and looks like hair, and kind of swallows Lola up when she lands in it.

Jodi said...

Too cute! I'm totally reminiscing about my older brother and I when we were kids!

The bond between a brother and sister is something that can't be duplicated. These photos are so sweet.

clearness said...

JenniAsh said...

I think you are about to become a Blog of Note :)
High time!!
Loved the one of Lola in her big brother's arms... place of refuge, place to challenge.

Maggie May said...

I'm glad you guys like the trio :)
Lola cried in the end because her head got bonked !

Alesa I took these photos, and thank you so much for the compliment and the visit.

Ms. Moon said...

I always wanted an older brother. But no, I am the oldest of four and the only girl. Figure it out.
Your children are as beautiful as spring. As beautiful as you are.

Kempt said...

What happened?! They are growing so fast... Have I been reading for so long? Or does it move that fast?

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Your family is adorable.

Rachel said...

I was the youngest and the only girl also. She might not like it much when she get's older and no one will date her, because they are scared of her older brothers. LOL!!

All This Trouble... said...

Wow. It's amazing how amazing those photos are!

Annie said...
