An ode to Malak and mommy...cause were in love...















Malak, how do I love thee, let me count the ways...
1. I love that you sing with me when I sing to you.
2. I love that you pucker and blow little breaths when I blow bubbles for you.
3. I love that you pat my, and only my, back when I hold you close.
4. I love that you make a weird loud quacking sound when you suck your thumb.
5. I love to hear you yell "dada" whenever you see your sweet dad.
6. I love that you have your own little party in the backseat when we are in the car.

7. I love that you smile every time I smile at you.
8. I love that you used to try and french me every time I kissed your lips.
9. I love that when I try to kiss your lips now you smack my face.
10. I love that I am the mama to you my sweet son-y!!

Congratulations! He is the cutest thing ever! You have a great family! I'm not sure if you remember me, I'm Maggie Bowman (previously Maggie Noble, due to an adoption). I was a friend of the Silvestri's in high school and met you on a mission trip while you were over there with AIM. I just wanted to say hello to you and Eric. Feel free to send an email: margaret_bowman0524@yahoo.com. Take care!!

Wow what adorable pictures! I can see how happy you both are!

Stacie said...

Awwww... Mommy & Baby. Love it. And, I was laughing out loud about the french-kissing. Micah still tries to make out with us when we give him kisses. I'm wondering when/if that will end.
