Magical moment 299, "Welcome, Gabby"

Eddie and I are the proud Aunt and Uncle of a new baby niece! This is what our 4 year old nephew said of his new baby sis...

Admiration and wonder filled the air.
All gathered round the new baby with care.

Brand new were her feet, fingers, and toes.
Delicate and small were her eyes, mouth, and nose.

“She looks like an angel,” cried mom with delight.
“A beautiful doll, so perfect and right.”

“She looks like her daddy,” another one said.
“The spitting image, from her feet to her head.”

Big brother looked at the bundle of pink,
And somebody asked him, “What do you think?”

He crinkled his nose and thought for a bit.
Being an honest young boy, he had to admit,

He knew she would change once she got big,
But right now he said, “She’s pink, like a pig!”

That is one hundred percent exactly what he said to me on the phone. I can't wait to see him and his two little sisters soon.

Out of the mouths of babes... Priceless (I suspect he'll be reminded of this comment at opportune moments for the rest of his life)! It is wonderful to be a "new" aunt and uncle, isn't it? Congratulations!!

I love it! I wish I could be poetic once in a while! :)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Out on the Prairie - Thank you and I see from your blog that you're from the Midwest as well?! I'm from Nebraska. :) Thanks for your comment.

Thanks Esther. I don't consider it poetry, so much as throwing together words that rhyme. lol.
