Little Girls....

In the eyes of a child...there is joy, there is laughter... there is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future...

My niece barely 4 years 5 months and already she is going on to 13.  This little girl from the day she was born was and still is a bundle of non-stop energy.  If Arvid had trouble keeping up with her when she was barely a year and a half that says a lot.  He is normally really good with not getting worn out, but Lilly Vade wore him off, yet he never gave up.

A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. She can jitter around and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves, yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is innocence playing in the mud. Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot..

Like all girls she loves getting her picture taken, she loves dressing up and getting pampered.  She has been having mani-pedis from very young and loves them.  Just the other day she was having one and was having as usual the time of her life.

Not having children does not make me not know how wonderful kids are.  From my sisters I know that,

 A baby girl... is one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys one can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today"
