The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

We break from this regularly schedule island adventure to introduce....

the most perfect child in the world!

This is my niece...

Her name is Ensley Kate

I totally stole the idea for this photo from "A Thorn Among Roses" (over in the sidebar)

She's gorgeous and perfect, in that new baby kind of way....

In that new baby that  belongs to me sort of way.... where no flaws exist....

Where you are absolutely sure beyond a doubt that an unkind word will never cross her lips and she will never do anything wrong!

She's perfect in that, "I can't stop staring at you" kind of way....

In the intoxicating way that babies (particularly babies to whom you have a very deep emotional connection) draw you in and force you to drink of their love elixir.  

And smart girl that she is, she's already looking around for her "Mo" when she can't see me.  She knows who has all the good duds! :)

I'd say her mama is pretty drunk on the Ensley wine too, wouldn't you?

And if you think this isn't one of the hardest parts of leaving next week, you're out of your mind!  

Every good and perfect gift is from above.... the Book of Samuel!

Oh... I just drank the Ensley kool-aid too! She's beautiful! And don't laugh -- all I could think of at first (besides how pretty she is!) was that your chair could get peed on!

Oh that fuzzy hair and the smell of a sweet is addicting.

Congrats on your 10K...great job and GREAT time!

No, Ondrea, I am not moving to Hawaii with you...I wished that WAS the news...stay tuned...and don't get too excited.

Trust me when I say ... God won't disappoint!
