The Four of Us

The Four of Us

Recently, someone thought that Joshua and I were twins.

A few years ago, someone thought that I was his mother.

I’m sure that multiple people have thought that Elizabeth is my daughter.

This is the life of the eldest child in a group of four siblings that are very different ages.

The comments, remarks and assumptions can be quite awkward sometimes – but I wouldn’t change these age differences for the world.

Without these three hooligans beautiful siblings in my life, I would be a completely different person; much more quiet, much lonelier, much more selfish … I’m pretty thankful for them.

True, we have our differences, and oftentimes, the range of maturity levels clash. But we’re all learning to accept each other the way we are, to understand where each person is in their walk in life, and that has brought us so much closer.

Would you like to meet all of us individually? Come read below!

Like I already mentioned, I’m the oldest! I have a passion for sharing God’s love, photography, and trying new things (especially new desserts). You can read more about what my hobbies and interests are here.

My first younger brother, Joshua, is the closest to me in age; we’re about four years apart. I used to be able to call him my ‘little’ brother, but man – he suddenly got so tall this past year! He’s a really sweet guy, and he loves sports, science, games, and movies! We easily squabble and get on each other’s nerves all the time, but underneath all of that, we love each other. Oh, and by the way, he has own gaming channel that I run for him – you should go check it out if you want a good laugh!

Samuel is my second little brother, and he’s still small – though goodness knows for how much longer that will be! At five years of age, he loves playing pretend, being silly, watching TV, and learning new things – right now, he’s learning to write! He’s the most adorable, kindest kindergartner you’ll ever meet.

The youngest member of our squad is baby Elizabeth. She’s a spunky 7-month-old with the fluffiest hair ever! Her facial expressions and vocalizations are the cause for much laughter and joy in our household. I love getting to watch her grow up! I’ve always wanted a sister, and she was well worth the long wait.

I hope you enjoyed reading this little post about us! I quite enjoyed writing it.

  1. So beautiful! You have a loving family! So cool that you waited a long time for a sister and “it was worth the long wait.” I have a 4-year gap between my older sister and me – I’m not sure I could handle a long wait like you did, but you did so with grace!

    1. Thank you! ❤ There were times when I felt very sad that I didn’t have a sister, but as a whole, I trusted in the Lord’s plan. I’m so happy that He gave me and Elizabeth each other. 😊
