I'm not really sure if pictures of me as a baby are limited because my parents weren't big on taking them or because I'M ADOPTED and I came into their lives too late for them to get a bunch of shots, but what I do know is that photos of me as a child are hard to come by. But a few weeks ago while I was planning a video in honor of my DAD'S BIRTHDAY, my cousin floated me a few pictures of Baby Denene, and I unearthed a few in my mom's old photo albums. When I look at them, I'm consistently amazed at how much Lila and Mari are my little mini me's; in these pictures, in my face and my eyes and my skin and my smile, I see my babies. And I know for sure that my blood flows through their veins—an amazing thing to consider knowing that these two little people are the only human beings I know, for sure, are of my blood. That still kind of gives me goosebumps.
Just thought I'd share.
