Z is for Zoë, that's good enough for me

The summer Tyler and Leah got married I dated a guy whose best friend had just published his first book, Breeding Between the Lines: Why Interracial People are Healthier and More Attractive. Clearly my first niece proves his thesis.

And so, on the eve (hopefully--she's 8 days over now) of the birth of Rachel & Jorge's daughter, I say huzzah for immigrants and adoption and hope and endurance and the clash and mixing of cultures. It's a big beautiful feathery colorful skyfilled world, and somehow it seems to keep creating more things in it for me to love.

Oh MY is she pretty. (Can I refer to a baby as exotic? Is that inappropriate?)

Would not blame that carniverous fiance of yours if he sunk his teeth into some Zoe. She is munchy.

Renee said...

I can't believe how big she's gotten!! The Tyler is totally coming out...i love it! I can't wait to see her in person in a few months!! You MUST call me as soon as Rachel's wee one is born!! I was just thinking about her the other day.
