Picture by Nina herself, yes, she's been taking a series of 'self-portraits'--get it?-- which are too funny not to keep. She seems to not want to grow. She says she wants to be my baby forever-- little does she know(lol). Here's what she said to me a few days ago when I reminded her of her 5th birthday next month--July. I simply adore her mind, she teaches me something new everyday...


"I never want to change
I'm going to keep my Four!
mama, this is what I'll do
I will stay inside something that never grows
A house!
yes, a house never grows
but mama, why don't houses grow?"

I love it and what a pretty child. That age is so precious, my own daughter was telling me that she took my four year old granddaughter to church on Sunday and when they were praying she looked around and bent over to say to her mother..."Mommy, how come if God is in heaven we look at the floor to pray to him?"
As you say...out of the mouths of babies.
