Mimi's 1st...

My baby is one today!!!!
I'm so excited for her. I spent so much love on her two sisters, i couldn't imagine loving anyone more... and then she came, with a love hook like no other.
I am completely taken with her.
Her eyes, they tell a story, and i just want to look in them as long as i can, trying to figure out what it sees, what it's making with the pictures life throws at it.
Her smile... it melts my heart.
She loves to dance.
She's a strong, funny and beautiful girl...
One of my favorite things to do, is pick her up and rain kisses on her. Or lie in bed with her when she sleeps and put my face next to hers, listening to her breath.
Babies create this interlude in life, you know, that place where you're lost in their innocence and the joy of being with them that you forget how cold it is outside. Because they don't know and don't care about what's going on, you have no choice but to be free from all that when you carry them.

I've been told she looks like me, i don't see the resemblance, but i take the compliment and run with it.

Here's to Michelle... my true love, my best ever 'early' Christmas gift. She's been such a blessing and i can't thank God enough for blessing us with her. There's a whole lot of greatness brewing in her, the joy of the lord will be her strength all her days. The world is her oyster and she's going to be producing a whole load of pearls with it. Love you Mimi.

P.S Due to popular perception, i have to clarify that she is my niece... my 3rd niece. Doesn't mean i don't wish all mine :)

  8. Happy belated to your daughter. I agree that children create a particular innocence in our lives which reminds us of how it used to be, as Whitney Houston once sang.

    She does resemble her mom.
