Sugar and Spice

Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord. ~Psalm 127:3

Aren’t they just about the most beautiful girls you have EVER seen? To be fair, it’s been two weeks since my daughter gave birth and this is only the second post about my granddaughter. I believe I have shown admirable restraint. But she is just so gorgeous. I felt I would be doing you a disservice by withholding such beauty from you.Β  Enjoy πŸ™‚

This dress is one of many bought by her doting uncle Josh. He adores her.

She likes it when her daddy plays for her.

Kenzie and Bibi.

Incidentally, Bibi is the name I am offering to my granddaughter. My godson Ezra bestowed the name upon me. No one knows why. While seeking alternatives to the names that make me feel really old (yes, I am that vain), I discovered that Bibi is the Swahili name for Grandmother. While Chechewa is the language spoken by our beloveds in Malawi, Swahili is a universal language of sorts on the African continent. When we visited the refugee camp where several nationalities live side by side, we found Swahili to be the common tongue. So I have already two heart connections to the name. Of course, truth is, Kenzie can call me anything and I will come running.Β  πŸ™‚
