You're going to have 2 awesome bros!

We're already preparing the big brothers for life with a little sister. About being gentle, and how her favorite thing is hugging & kissing, and how they cannot feed her a lollipop or gum.....

But I think they'll be awesome big brothers and teach her some awesome things!
Like how to ROCK or walk as Quinn says.... 
How to throw a spiraling football or a wicked curve ball... 
How to love your sibling when two seconds earlier he accidentally (or not so accidentally) hit you upside the head.... 
How to get her groove on..... 
Learning how to serve others before yourself....
How to sneak in your parents electronics and take funny pictures when your parents didn't even realize you knew how to operate the camera when it was turned off.....


And how to rope your bro in the naughty action (well, we don't want them to teach her this, I imagine she'll learn all by herself)... 
She'll learn how it's more awesome to cuddle than do just about anything else (at least for 48 seconds)
How there is a fine line between loving the dog and torturing the dog....
And there is nothing wrong with loving a giant purple dinosaur who sings horrible songs...
How most things in life are funny, it's just a matter of perspective.....
How to be humble when you win a game and not yell I WIN and run around the house (we're working on that- with Judah, not Quinn, btw)...
How to eat whatever is in front of you at least ONE bite and to not beg for ice cream at 8am and say "but I'm huuuuuunnnngeeeeeeeeee" like you haven't eaten in two weeks and only cure is ice cream... 

And most of all, to teach her how to love each other and love God..... And if they could teach how to be an awesome sleeper like they are 99% of the time, I'd appreciate that too. ;)

What a cute post! Boy, Judah has your EXACT face, but in that pic of him throwing the football... I finally see G's genes... he has his EXACT football stance! Us Sherman's don't have a football stance that looks cool. :)

And Quinn wrestling/hugging Indy... does he look like a college frat boy or what?! I can see this exact picture in 20 years, except most likely Indy would be replaced with Judah... or maybe Devon!

Your little girl (are we saying the name on this blog? wink) is going to be one lucky little one to have such cute, funny, and protective big brothers!!

Love, Julie

Awww....they are going to be fantastic big brothers! It made me laugh to see the pictures that they took of themselves. How funny. How did they figure that out? I love the "groove" picture too. ha ha....such funny boys. They'll love her to pieces. ;)
