I Miss

I Miss my niece and how she smells.

I miss my niece and her sneaky baby tricks, like trying to eat acorns and rocks when she thinks we aren't looking.

I miss my niece and her dirt eating ways.

I miss my niece and how she drags that right leg and uses it as a rudder when she crawls.

I miss my niece and how she will crawl for five or six good fast crawls and then stop, sit and *sigh* because it is such an effort.

I miss my niece and how she grunts and groans to get from point A to point B in particular when she has to crawl over something, for it is as if she is crawling over the Himalayas. Treacherous and difficult.

I miss my niece and her fascination with the football or basketball, full sized. She likes to lick them.

I miss her sweet baby voice.

And her two sweet little baby teeth.

And her little hands with the splayed out fingers when she claps.

And how sometimes she will put out one hand to shun you... or will sometimes pull her Mama in for a big open mouthed kiss.

I miss her.

Yeah, and in two weeks when you see her again, she'll be ready to graduate high school. Just sayin'. Those sweet baby days are gone in a flash.

I spent 5 days with my little girl who is 6. She never ever stuck stuff in her mouth but wow she is wonderful. She spent every waking moment with five of her male cousins and just had a hoot the whole time. She has remarkable cousins.
