Little Breezy.

Lacey first sent me this video in 2008. I was in Utah– the only sibling not living at home. I watched this in my college living room a million times and missed little Bradley SO much that I cried (and got embarrassed because Ken was over.)

“Stop throwin all the snow or we won’t have any leftwahhhhh”
And then, after retaliation… “Ah hah hah hahhhh!”

I LOVE that.
Bradley was an unexpected member in our family… did you guess?
I was 16 years old when he was born.
Sometimes people at the store would think he was mine–and I’d let ’em!
Jesse was 8 years old at the time and, like all of us, assumed he would never have younger siblings. He has since resolved to be the best big brother ever.

This little guy came at a really intense time for our family.
Long story short: God knew we needed Brad, so he took care of it.
He slept through the night right from the start and was a pretty easy baby.
I felt like God was saying (especially to my Mom)
“It’s not that you need to learn how to take care of a baby again…
…but man you need some love.”
Little Brad loved us no matter what, and didn’t seem to notice how hard things were then. Instead, he added a chubby smile of sunshine to everything, and kept us all from going insane.
