Skye Rose is born today!

An amazing, beautiful baby was born today. Her name is Skye Rose Conforti. I can not believe how much I miss her after being away from her for 2 hours! What an amazing God we have to give us these angels from heaven. I ran into a OBGYN on one of my most recent shopping trips and he told me when a baby is born it is the closest you will ever get to God in your living life. And today that proved true. These are my words to the sweet Skye.

Tonight I hope you sleep peaceful and don't have any scary dreams.

I hope as you grow up you know how much your mommy and daddy wanted you and love you.

I hope you know that as soon as your daddy saw you his heart turned to mush.

I hope you get your mommy's spirit and drive.

I hope you know how many people texted your Auntie Sammy the day you were born to find out anything about you.

I already love so many things about you:

I love how your bottom lip quivers when the nurse puts the cold stethoscope on your chest.

I love how analytical you are already.

I love your beautiful dark hair.

I love you sweet blue eyes.

I love your dimple in your chin.

I love your soft skin.

You are an amazing gift to this world and I want you always to realize that.

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle."
-Thich Nhat Hanh
