My firstborn gave me a gift last October. Well, he and his wonderful wife. A most precious gift. Carmen joined our family and took up permanent residence in my heart. There is no greater joy, no medicine more effective than my two precious granddaughters. Their pictures surround me as I work. Thoughts of them buoy me throughout the day. Here’s the other love of my life.
Hello, World. My name is Carmen. My arrival beat Abuela’s by four days! (She’s Na to my cousin Alyssa)
Here I am at seven days old. I was such a good girl on my first professional photo shoot.
You know I like to float in my own universe.
Who put this huge bow on my head? This is carrying the gift metaphor a little too far!
OK, who’s this red-suited guy and what does he want with me?
My abuela made this cozy blanket for my daddy, but I think I’m keeping it.
You said dinner was going to take how long?
Who is this guy now, and how did he get into my room?
Hey, World, I think I like it here!
I love you, Carmen!
