Here she is! Tell me you didn't smile and sigh "ohhhh" upon seeing this post :) This was the shot that convinced me to fully splurge on a bigger portrait package when Desi turned 3. Her little nails were painted, her dress pressed, and her hair complete with "curley curls."
If you know the Neil Diamond song written for a gal named Desiree, you'll understand why I have altered the lyrics to fit my pretty, delightful little girl. She excitedly jumps around and dances to the song whenever it is played. Yes, we like Neil. But no, we didn't name both of our girls after songs of his on purpose. By the way, William is feeling jipped- does anyone know a good William song- or Nathan for that matter??
I wish I could activate the character that puts an accent mark above the second to last E in her name. Anyway, here goes- It helps if you can hum the tune in your head while reading.
It was July the 6th
On that Summer's day
When I became a Mom
To a new little girl named Desiree
And she came to me
Just like the morning sun.
With her gentle touch
We were sure she was such an amazing one.
Oh, so much fun!
Desiree, Oh Desiree
In you I've found
Such a beautiful sound.
Oh, your loving song.
Keep singin' it your whole life long.
Remember Desiree, Oh Desiree
Holding you how I knew
That your sweet love would fill
My whole world with light.
In your eyes such a warming sight.
Oh Desiree you make it right.
