Have Mercy

Isn't she the cutest?

My youngest sister and her beau came over to visit the other day. Aunt Candice is adored by all the girls... and me, too. She's 10 years younger than I, and I had a very special place in my heart for her from the day she was born. While she was here Mercy decided (a short time ago NO ONE but Momma would do - and it bothered my dear family who was trying to love on her) that Aunt Candice was pretty cool after all. She clung tight the whole time she was here.

After playing outside for awhile we popped some popcorn and put in The Princess and the Frog. Mercy is getting so big... wanting her own bowl just like everyone else, then laid back in Candice's lap and didn't move the whole movie. Of course, I think Candice was slipping Mercy some sips of her coke. That may have helped matters a bit.

Nothing like an 18 month old strung out on coke. ;-)

She is totally the CUTEST! I remember way back when, I would stop by your blog every day hoping you would show her sweet baby face, when the time was right.
I admired how you protected her identity, and hoped she would become part of your family. What a precious gift. One of your many! :)

What's wrong with giving a baby a coke? Hmm, they didn't cover that in training. I'm at a total loss. lol
