You always wanted a little brother. When John Michael came along 20 months ago, you weren't sure he was the brother you were hoping for. Time and love have shown us that he is exactly the brother you were meant to have. You have such a special bond with him and it's amazing how much you two look alike at the same age. The top right photo of John Michael climbing on you and the photo below of you in your Bavarian sweater are amazingly similar. Same smile!
I hope John Michael learns a lot from you -- you're a great role model to him. You have an adventurous spirit, you're a strong Catholic, not afraid to stand up for your faith, fun and loving brother (most of the time), awesome son, smart, funny, brave, courteous, cheerful (OK, what's the Boy Scout oath again?) and all around likeable kid. We love you!
