One Year!

Today is a big day for Antonello and my baby niece, Miriam, as she celebrates her first birthday! Even from across an ocean, we have been so fortunate to watch her grow, with my brother's excellent eye and ability to capture the sweet moments of this one year. His flickr account has been our window into Miriam's world when we can't be with her, from her first days on the planet to her first haircut, and the many moments in between, Paul has helped us watch her grow.

And we've also been lucky to see her quite a bit ourselves during our visits home. Our trip home last year in November gave us the chance to see her as just a few-weeks-old baby, and the most recent trip in August was such a change, as she was already on her feet, learning to walk, full of personality and warmth, little baby faces that are all her own, and smiles and laughter. She is the sweetest baby ever (said, of course, without bias by the baby's aunt and uncle), and we think about her everyday. Baby Miriam--today we're thinking about you a lot, and we hope you celebrate well! We can't wait to see photos of your very first birthday. Have a blast! We miss you and love you a lot.

lots of love,
Aunt Jackie & Uncle Antonello

Whenever I hear sweet baby sentiments it always reminds me of that italian saying "Ogni scarrafone/scarafaggio รจ bello a mamma sua." I love it!

Reminds me of the time when Monica Bellucci was being interviewed about her daughter...the guy wanted to make a big deal on how incredibly beautiful her kid must be, and then she whipped out that remark like it was nothing to make a big deal over!

wow, i've never heard that saying, but it IS cute! :) and it's entirely true...when it's your own bimba or nipotina, you fall in love INSTANTLY :).

i think that's classy that monica bellucci said that. it's a good saying for the brad-angelina couple's baby too, maybe? :)
