six pix of little miss six

 newborn aleemay, six years ago
 after months on this earth. 
 about 18 months old
 three years old
 either almost five, or just barely five
on her daddy-date, dec. '10.

it's been a wild ride, child.
i've loved it all the way.
i like the way you make me smile,
every single day.

i can't believe it's been six years already.
six seems like so very long!
i can remember it like yesterday
your first cry was like a song.

you used to be so teeny tiny
little hands and little feet.
everything about you was so perfect...
your sweet head and your sweet seat.

little girl, who'll always be mine
i hope you'll always know
how much your father and i love you
and we'll never let that go!
~ your mother

you're such a miracle to watch grow!!!  i love you aleemay...  my six-year-old...

Oh my goodness, that is a beautiful poem! It brings back such fond memories of that first 6 months when the three of you were living with us!
