Comments: How Is Bea Doing?

Even etymologically precocious children are not likely to grasp nuances like "we're putting Bea's hat on so we don't have to explain her life story to strangers, not because we're ashamed". I doubt it's your fault!

Bea's smile is contagious! You can explain away that spot by saying she received a special touch from God.

You're right to be concerned about your other youngsters and the perception they have, as it relates to how they deal with other people. That's one of the joys of parenthood.

She is positively beautiful. What a fabulous smile... I can almost hear the giggle.

She is a charmer.

That boy of Chris' is about as handsome as they come, too. I know it's awfully early ...

Oh, Jordana, what a bundle of joy.

Mayhem #1 was very roly poly too. It seemed like she had half a dozen chins and extra elbows. As long as she was happy and making those happy noises I could handle anything. It's the crying, even when they're big, that kills me.

I agree. She's a cutie-pie, alright! Say, I have a cutie-pie 9 month old living with me here. Are you opposed to arranged marriages? ;)

We have some friends who (have) had a daughter with the same kind of birthmark, but it was smack dab between her eyes. I'm happy to report that that girl is now 6 years old and not a trace of the birthmark remains.
