I Love You Too.

I was once reading this great book (you may have heard of it- it's a little book called: The Bible) and it said, "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks". Well, my heart is now as abundantly full as it could ever be, so I figure I might as well speak a bit. Last Saturday July 2nd, at 8:39am, Jenny, Vincent, and I welcomed a brand new family member into the Mhire clan. Emille Annalise Mhire came into the world with big bright almond-shaped eyes and with a furry head of blackish-brown hair. She was very alert at the time of her birth. Slowly stretching and squirming about, her movements were like a baby ninja pterodactyl.

Although the adrenaline rush and excitement I felt witnessing the birth of both my children was certainly impacting, nothing compares to that moment hours, days, or weeks later when your newborn locks eyes with you for the first time. It's that moment when they look up at you and seemingly telepathically say to you: "I know you. You're my protector. You're my mother" or "You're my father. I love you". It's an irreplaceable moment and memory which recently brought me overwhelming joy as I looked into my Emille's eyes just as it did 3 1/2 years looking down into the eyes of my baby Vincent.

It's yet again the beginning of a brand new adventure in our lives!
