I can write whole, big, informative posts and get nary of comment. But post one cute baby picture and y'all tripping over each other to comment. That's fine. I can take it. God knows, she's much cuter than I am.
And Ali, I hate to tell you, that picture was taken almost a year ago! The curls are longer, the dimples are deeper and she's prone to answer any request to stop doing what she's doing by saying,
"But Mama, I just doo-in!"
If you want to know what melts my icy heart, it's a cherubic little voice calling me Mama. It's been about 12 years since I last heard that. The other night I looked over and her and the teenager were snuggled on the futon eating noodles together. That just about did it, too.
p.s. Ali, I'm glad your cousin got her lungs! I'll keep her in my prayers as well as the brave family that made the decision that saved her life.
