Ohhhhh Baby!

This fall will mark 10 years since I met my Kappa Kappa Gamma sister, and very good friend, Annabelle Bonifacio. Since then she's gotten married, become Mrs. Seemab Hussaini, and given birth to a tiny baby who is almost one month old. World, meet Khadija Bonifacio Hussaini, a beautiful and precious little girl. I hope they don't mind that I post this stunning photograph for all my friends to see, but it's just breaktaking. Whoever took this picture is an expert in capturing the unconditional love parents feel, and the beauty of a newborn. Annabelle and Seemab still live in Southern California, so I haven't been able to meet or hold Khadija yet. Hopefully that will change this summer when they move north to Portland, where Annabelle is originally from.

I've never met this baby, but she already feels like a niece to me. It's incredible when a friend you've known your entire adult life has a child. I waited for months to see what she'd look like, since she has such beautiful parents. I couldn't imagine this little angel!

Now my other good friend, Abigail Bernd, is pregnant and due to give birth in August or September. I can't wait to meet her little one! Then I will be an auntie times two!

Exactly! I can't wait to be an auntie again. My nephews are getting bigger now, I need a baby! Haa haa. But it sure was fun having a little five year old help me with making dessert. He's taught me a lot about myself and he's only (almost) 5. He's the kind of kid that makes you want kids.

That's an incredible photograph. It should be submitted for competition. So beautiful. Your friends sound like great people too!

I love that picture - it does capture the magic of having a baby. And she gave me permission to post it at work (I have a store that sells eco friendly baby products)! You can see the love radiating from them to their little one. That is what babies most need to grow and thrive.
