Earning a Nick Name: Part 2
Miss Tiny was only tiny until she found the right end of a bottle, and then the right end of a spoon and then the right end of whatever she can get her chubby little hand around.
Jayde is perfectly happy all the time. Content, easy going, and an absolute goof ball who lives to entertain. She loves deeply, giggles loudly and sleeps very, very little.
I was her seventh mother. She didn't make eye contact with me for at least 4 months. I held, I cooed and finally I sang. And she would glance. And then look. And then stare. And now she loves. Oh how she loves. With her entire entire heart and her chubby thighs she loves.
