[W]hen the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl.
~James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan
Now presenting...naomi lee o'bryant! My newest cousin! Even though I'm claiming her as my niece since her mother is basically my sister. I WILL be Auntie Carlie, that awesomely stylish and wealthy aunt (minus the, you know...wealth) who spoils her fabulous niece. That's right--I'm AWESOME. ;)
Oh, she is so precious. There's something about a baby that just...smells like Heaven. Literally. They're so fresh and new to the world. Simply angelic and completely innocent. It's a beautiful thing to hold that in your arms! I love her!
I'll tell her to believe in fairies.
