FC: To: Jen | From: Heaven
1: "A precious baby has come from above to live in your hearts and fill them with love."
2: We are so lucky that you were here to watch me be born. Mommy says you were the best birth coach a girl could ask for!
3: Zaiya Barack Obas | I was born on Friday, February 3rd, 2010 at 3:02pm. I weighed 6 pounds and measured 19.25 inches long. It only took me 17 minutes to escape! Of course, if you ask my Auntie Jen, who was right beside mommy, it took me 19 minutes! | Circle of life...
4: "Godmothers are angels sent from up above to watch over us and give us love."
5: Snug as a bug in a rug! | I know mommy will never forget those first three weeks of my life. Thank you for taking such good care of me and my mommy, Auntie Jen! It really helped Mommy take better care of me, too. I love you!
6: Magical moments that we'll never forget: his first bath, the way he woke up, mommy's first night away from him, the birthday "surprise!"
7: Zaiya's Special Gift
8: Precious Beginnings
9: Thank you for taking my picture so much when I was little. This is a priceless gift you gave to me and my mommy.
10: A Baby Is A Bit Of Stardust Blown From Heaven
15: These pictures of you giving me a bath and reading to me are two of my favorites, Auntie Jen! We had so much fun! I love playing with you!
16: "It's The Little Things In Life That Matter Most"
18: LOOK WHO IS SIX MONTHS OLD ALREADY! | More amazing pictures by you, Godmother! Gosh, you make me look so cute!
19: CUTE AS A BUTTON!
21: My first blueberry pancakes! Yummy!!! | Love this FACE!
22: My baptism was pretty amazing. Before they dipped me in the (cold) water and watched me do the "running man," the priest talked about mommy's favorite song, "Imagine" by John Lennon, and all the kids came to bless me on my special day! The greatest blessing was having you beside me, Godmother!
23: You were very silly at my party after the baptism, Auntie Jen! You put on Landon's Buzz Lightyear gloves and posed like a lady superhero! It made me and my cousins laugh!
24: We had a blast taking my one year pictures with mommy! They definitely wouldn't have been as cute if you weren't there... mommy can't keep up!
25: ONE YEAR OLD! | Nobody could believe I was one!
26: 18 months and cuter every day!
27: My 1st birthday party was a lot of fun. I was the "star" of the show! Auntie Jenni made cake balls, you got me a "See & Say" toy and Mom-mom and Pop got me a red rocking chair! I loved playing with my new race car track with Landon and Connor from mommy and daddy!
29: This was my first REAL chocolate cupcake experience! This was THE BEST! And the greatest part was that my daddy never even knew!
30: Let's face it, there really is nothing cuter than my little booty! | Mommy said you would love this picture of me with my BIG cousins! | Here I am getting ready to take a bath when I was just learning to stand on my own!
31: Now I'm a little man!
33: I know that I will always look up to you, Auntie Jen! You are so strong and so special to me. I am glad you have been here to watch me grow and to keep my mommy sane! I look forward to many, many more memories with you as I continue to grow like a weed!
35: We've come a long way together, Auntie Jen! I love you!
