Will you still love me if I kidnap Baby Brooke?

The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.

I am also thinking about kidnapping Jonathon and Shoshi.

And my parents.

They make our lives infinitely better.

Who do you want to kidnap today?

i don't know how anyone could be in proximity to that baby and NOT want to kidnap her! i just want to kiss that little chin! funny that having a baby in my house hasn't lessened my baby love :)

btw- i love love LOVE kaishan's hair! i have super curly thick hair. i wish it would just look like that. so much easier! wouldn't you know that all five of my kids have straight hair!

I am with Marla. ALL of the pics are amazing, but the one of her "praying" is so, so special! I know how Andrea does all of those beautiful word art creations with pictures; give her that one and see what she comes up with. I bet it will be breathtaking! Hmm, as for who I want to kidnap? Well, you... :<) We could have fun... dontcha think? Cameras in hand, roaming a .. let's see... Caribbean island! yeah, that's it...

I got to hold a new baby today and would kidnap him in a heartbeat. Of course, I'd return him when he didn't sleep through the night ... but it'd be wonderful while it lasted!
