365 - 3/8/11
I am back from my trip to Texas to meet this cutie-patootie. Isn't she lovely?!?! I am blessed with 6 gorgeous nieces (and one handsome nephew), Chloe being the youngest. Seeing my sister as a mommy was breathtaking. She has it all under control - I remember being a mess after my first was born. But not Kimi. She was made for mommyhood. She has wanted a baby for awhile now and this little one does not disappoint. She is sweet and gentle and perfect.
I have been having a bit of a baby bug for awhile now. Not that I could do anything about it, we, um, took care of business a few years ago, so no more babies for us. But that doesn't mean that my heart wouldn't yearn for another. And as much as I adored Chloe, and how easy of a baby she is, I realized on this trip that I'm definitely good with my two boys. Babies are a LOT of work. Ya know? You kind of forget that. And we're in a place now where there is a certain amount of independence in each of our boys, which means I can focus on my career a little bit more. And honestly, my photography business is a bit of a toddler right now. We're making big steps together, but it still needs hand holding and nurturing - quite a bit like a baby.
So Miss Chloe... thank you for letting me snuggle you and feed you and play with you and sing to you. And for being a perfectly lovely little niece. You are dear to my heart, as is my sister and the rest of her family. But I'm good on the baby front.
