I love her {On being an auntie}

Sigh....I love this little girl. Seriously. Outside of my three girls, this girl has captured my heart. For those new around here, she is my niece India. She was born on the exact same day that we adopted Xiomara. I cried buckets of tears over not being able to see her right away. My only sliver of relief was the thought of knowing I had a whole lifetime with her. So as the completely enamored auntie, let me tell you a bit about her.

She is funny! She definitely has quite a bit of her mommy in her funny little personality. I've been able to watch her the last two afternoons while my sister worked, and I could not stop laughing. It reminds me of being with my own sister. :)

She is smart! India doesn't want to miss a thing. Every little noise or movement made, she would get this adorable look on her face as if to figure out what exactly was going on.

She has to be the easiest baby I have ever watched! And I've watched a lot. While she is VERY busy and moves non-stop, she never cries. She always has a smile on her face and she is easily entertained. Oh, and did I mention she is beautiful?

India girl, I love you! I hope you always know how much your Auntie Nessa loves you and would do anything for you. I can't wait to see the amazing things God is going to do in your life because you truly are an incredible little girl.


  1. You described my baby perfectly. Thank you for loving her so much - I know she loves you too!!!

  2. She is a very easy girl to love! :)

  3. I LOVE the picture where she's thinking--you can SEE the wheels turning!
    From reading Genevieve's blog too, I can see that that girlie doesn't miss a beat!

  4. Yes Melissa. She just watches everything and the wheels are always turning! :) It really is pretty cute.
