My little brother the Miracle!

Friday, October 24, 2008

My little brother's wedding is tomorrow! Wearing heels and a bridesmaid's dress isn't my idea of having a good time but i am soo excited that he is marrying Tasha - they are perfect for each other!

Timmy was born premature and immediately lifelined to Johns Hopkins where they told us he would be blind (because of his time in the incubator) by first grade and definitely retarded because of how early he was born. A lot of prayers and love later i am happy to report that he is healthy and an amazing little brother (not that i am biased or anything - i love each of my 4 brothers and sister). Not only did God spare him both of the diagnoses the doctors had decided he was going to be faced with in the future, but he is an avid mountain biker, hiker and a brilliant graphics designer - his imagination is unreal!!

On a side note, the bridemaid dress i spoke of earlier... well, when i was fitted for it this spring they didn't have one big enough for me to fit into (this was before i knew about Sparks). Freaked out, i planned on dieting (but had no idea how), buying a girdle and paying a lot of money to have the dress altered. Thanks to Sparks, when the dress arrived a month ago and i went for alterations it fit well (i didn't even have to buy the Spanx), the only thing i had to do was pay to have the straps raised. At final fitting the dress was too loose!!! Thankfully there is a strap at the waist that is supposed to be tied that i can show my 'new' waist off with - i actually have a bit of a waist now!!! i will be adding pictures of Billie and myself in this dress as soon as i can.
