baby baby baby

I'm in love with baby Amia! She's so perfect and beautiful and so distinguished and so organized. (She's Husayn's and Suzanne's baby that was born on the 14th.) I've been showing off the pictures I took in my digital camera to everyone who will listen. No, just kidding. But I did show them off at a family dinner with Billy's dad and his family, including his sister Crystal Shoaie from Bolivia who was here for a short visit. Everyone agrees that she's the very best a baby can be. And Georgia and Maya take turns announcing to each other that she's born. Georgia: Baby Amia's born! Yeah! Suzanne's baby came out of her tummy! Maya: Baby Amia! Born! Out!

It all bodes well for the future of this family that they're so excited about babies being born. Go big sisters go!

And, you know, it's really fun to get all googly and happy and adoring about a newborn baby, and yet, not have to have given birth to her yourself. I'm really enjoying the once removedness of that. I get to sleep at night too. It'll be my turn soon enough, and I'm sure I wouldn't trade that experience for anything, but for now, it's nice to just watch.

Oh baby, am I jealous. I just can't wait to meet this tiny person, having followed along with each stage of her development. I so want to hold her and tell her how happy we all are that she has arrived here in our community, our own little Baha'i garden. Big sigh . . .
