A Few of my Favorite Things

Just emerging from the post-partum fog to share with you a few of my favorite things about Charlotte Daisy. (With apologies to Julie Andrews. Feel free to sing along.)

Smiles and softness and multiple chins

Downy white fur on her pink wrinkly skin


Yawns like a hippo

and little crossed feet
These are a few of my favorite things


Male pattern baldness
with cute little sideburns


Sleeping in nightgowns

and cuddles with sister


Practicing looks she can use in her teens
These are a few of my favorite things


When the poop leaks
When I don't sleep
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

Oh my goodness. She is the cutest! She has Beth's nose! In fact, she looks a lot like Beth with a rounder face. The cheeks! I can't wait to meet her in person.

So happy for you!!!
