It seems like only yesterday

I sit here, getting ready to go to AZ for my little brothers high school graduation ..and I'm feeling a little nostalgic....
....It seems like only yesterday I was getting my little brother ready for Halloween, where he was the lion, and I was drawing whiskers on his face with my black eyeliner....
....It seems like only yesterday my sister and I would be dancing around to music to try to get him to stop crying....
.....It seems like only yesterday I was there to watch him pull himself up in the crib for the first time....
....It seems like only yesterday the phrase "It was a joooooke..teabags!" was being said at our dinner table, (we should have known he would be the class clown)....
.....It seems like only yesterday where he would be able to walk under the island in the kitchen and we would all say "one day he will hit his head"....
....It seems like only yesterday I became superwoman when he got stuck under the bed during our family "camping"....
.....It seems like only yesterday watching my brothers kindergarten graduation, I knew I had to be a teacher.....
....It seems like only yesterday this little child stole my heart....

AND NOW
....And now there is this child who is all grown up .....who is starting college ..and one day getting married and having kids ....
.....And now there is this boy who is still the life of the party and has a fantastic sense of humor! Who can make anyone laugh with his jokes and has a heart of gold....
....And now there is this young adult who is my height (possibly taller) ...Whose hands no longer are the tiny hands that I used to hold....
...And now there is this man who I call my brother, who I love to pieces and am so proud of!!!!

I love you Seany Doo Wop!! Congratulations Class of 2009!!!
