I remember the day my brother was born. The anticipation of him getting here and the excitement when I finally had a little brother to play with! His birthday is 8 days after mine and I have always said he was my birthday present. Hermano was born C-section so my mom and dad went to the hospital at the scheduled time and left me out at my friend Timothy's house to await the phone call that my little brother had arrived. I sat waiting and waiting and it seemed like FOREVER before we could finally pile into the car and head to the Med Center.
As soon as I got to the the hospital, I couldn't wait to see what he looked like! Nine months is a LONG time to wait for something, especially when you're only 4. From that day on, my brother was my pride and joy. We were best friends and never fought about ANYTHING. To this day, we have only had one argument and it didn't last long (I don't even remember what it was about!).
When my brother celebrated his 21st birthday this weekend, I got very sentimental. I mean, he is really turning into a grown up and I can't believe it! We threw him a birthday party that included an afternoon of food, drinks, and games and I think he had a blast! I hope he remembers this birthday as something special. I know I will.
