Proud Big Sister

I am so proud of my Brother, Jack!!  

Last night, he called me to tell me that he has officially been accepted into the University of Missouri-Columbia (MIZZOU) for the 2013-2014 school year!  

I cannot even explain in words how proud of him I am!

Jack was born as a preemie, 2 pounds 5 ounces on February 13th, 1995.  I may have only been 10 years old at the time, but I do remember that day very vividly.  My brother Jeff and I stayed with my Aunt Nancy while my mom had an emergency C-Section from complications of preeclampsia.  He was born 8 weeks early.  Jeff and I didn't know too much about preemies, and when we saw him he was so very tiny.

Now, he is a 17 year old kid who is so very smart and towers over me in how tall he is!  

I found out that I was his first phone call last night, his comments were, "I cannot wait to hear Jessica's reaction".  I wont lie, I teared up hearing that and hearing that my baby brother is old enough to go to college!!!

I give Jack all of my love and support as he grows up and goes off to college.  I cannot wait to see what else is in store in his life.  I have enjoyed every minute of watching him grow from day one and cannot wait for this next journey in his life.
