August 6, 2013.
The day you finally arrived. Four days late, but on the very day I predicted you would arrive during the weeks leading up to your birth.
Penelope Celidh Kathleen
Not a moment too soon.
You shook things up in our world.
But quickly you melted right into our existence as if you were always here.
We love your happy easygoing attitude mixed with a good portion of determination to get your way, which mostly means making sure Mom is always holding you.
Your big sisters adore you. Oh how many nicknames they’ve given you.
Baby Loo Loo
And of course their favorite: Penelle.
Happy birthday Penelle!
I hear babies cry. I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll never know.
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
Love you sweet girl.
