I will never forget patiently waiting next to my phone for the arrival of Baby Watermelon Seed.
And then, on October 11th, 2011 my sweet neice, Haines Isabelle, decided to make her arrival.
She is perfect.
As I sit here typing this, my eyes fill with tears because I wish I could see Baby Haines more. Stupid miles between us. But anytime I receive a text with a picture of Haines’ latest moves or I see a picture of her on Facebook, a smile spread across my face.
I can’t believe a year has gone by. My, how time flies.
Since I can’t put into words what she means to me and how much I love my precious sister and brother-in-law, I’ll leave you with some of “Auntie Em’s” favorite “Haines” pictures.
Baby Haines, I love you more than you’ll ever know. Happy 1st Birthday!
