My Daughter...My Song Bird

This is my Daughter...My song bird

This is the first child created by "our love," she is our song bird. She is the first of "Ours" in the "Yours, Mine and Ours" kind of love story.  I couldn't wait to give birth to her! I wanted to know everything about her. Who's eye's she was going to have, who's nose, I wanted to hear her laughter.

Even though her delivery came two weeks later than she was expected, she was a lil bitty thing. She weight 5 lbs 7 oz and the doctor exclaimed,"She nothing but eye balls and eye lashes!" She entered this world calmly and full of wonder and she has remained that way. She didn't close her eyes for sleep until hours after she was born, she was too busy experiencing life.

This child loved music from the beginning, she very rarely had a bad day even as a baby, always happy, always smiling and when she did have a bad day, music soothed her. She sang melody's before she could even speak. At 13, She can stun an audience to silence within the first few bars of a song.  She has the soul of a woman who has lived a thousand years.  Many people turn to me when she's singing with their mouths opened and they point to the goosebumps on their skin.  She has been compared to Patsy Cline, Leanne Rimes, Brenda Lee and Whitney Houston, you can't get better than that!

I often felt that she was robbed of my time, I gave birth to her baby brother just short of 11 months after her birth. I now had "Irish Twins" She was a very gracious older sister and didn't seem to bother sharing me with her younger brother, but I wish I had more time with just her. Her older Sisters who were now 5 and 9 were perfectly happy about being the only children, but they adjusted as usual, they thought we really must have lost our minds when we announced we were expecting again. I believe their exact words were,"WHY?" and "ARE YOU CRAZY, YOU JUST HAD A BABY!" We had enough love to share with them all.

This daughter of mine, this song bird is a true Gemini, for although she is a sweet and gentle child, she is the quickest to temper. She definitely inherited my fire! She hates injustice and always fights for the underdog.  She is the keeper of all animals, she wants to save everything and everybody, she has big love.

She is the one who reminds me to see with a child's eye, where everything has infinite beauty.

Every child needs a letter like this from their mom.

Your daughter sounds great, LOL I have to laugh. I have boy/girl twins who are 13. They'll be 14 Dec. 13.  My daughter likes music but really doen't have a good voice.  My son, for some strange reason he does not like music.  When he was 3 and in preschool he refused to go to music class.  Nothing had changed now that's he's 13. Keep up the good work with the kids and your journal.
