I have a few house posts coming up this week, but I pushed them back simply because my heart won't stop melting over this precious smile.
Yesterday afternoon I got to spend time with my niece, and oh boy, I can't get enough.
She's simply brilliant. She's beautiful. And, she has a giggle that comes right from the gut. Every action and reaction amazes me. She tucks her little chin in her shoulder and sways from side to side, while holding her hands together at her waist. She opens her mouth really wide and puts her hand over it when she's really excited. She whispers "sshhh" when putting her doll to sleep. She runs around the house with a huge smile on her face, stops, waves, and keeps going. She babbles on and on, with her hands waving in the air a mile a minute, as if she's saying "Guys! Listen up! This is exciting stuff!"
Suddenly she's gone from this little peanut to looking like a little woman, so full of joy!
...And hearing her say "Aunt Mere Mere," melts.my.heart into a million pieces!
OH yes, she also still looks identical to my brother. (Mom, if you're reading this, I swear you have a picture of Matt that looks identical to the one below.)
She does have her momma's laugh though :)!!
