everyone smiles

“For Heloisa, every elderly person feels like a grandparent. And she loves her grandparents. So I asked her if she wanted to have her sixth birthday party at a home for the elderly. She loved the idea. So I contacted a local home and planned everything with the coordinator. We sent invitations to the family members of all the residents. I’m a photographer, so I went a few days early and took nice portraits of all the residents. On the day of the party, I printed out the photographs and brought them as gifts for their family members. We did games and activities. There was so much joy. Everyone had such big smiles. The residents were crying. Their families were crying. I was crying. I think Heloisa will remember the experience forever. Afterward, her school friends came home with us and we had an old-fashioned pajama party.”

Five Years Old
There is a new kid in your kindergarten class. He’s quiet, has freckles all about his tiny face, and wide green eyes. He stands next to the teacher as she introduces him to everyone and you smile widely when you realize that the only open seat in the classroom is the one next to you.

A new friend and you’re thrumming with excitement as he takes his seat next to you.

“Dean!” you exclaim, making him jump.

rafaelcasal We only know one way to warm up our voices before we go on stage. Lit scales. @daveeddiggs #vocalwarmups Smile, everyone! Life is short. Sincerely, the Bay Boys

Roslyn is five months old today!

We took her in for a check up and she is over 27 inches long, which puts her ABOVE the 99 percentile for height, (we couldn’t believe it! I’m 5'2" and both of our families are short. I know she could grow up to be short but it’s funny.) She is also 18.2lb which puts her at the 92nd percentile for weight.

She can sit up for longer periods of time unassisted and roll both ways. She says “Mama,” is working on “Dada,” and can use the sign language for milk!! It’s not consistent but she’s definitely getting it down. She loves bath time, books, singing or anything silly that we do. She’s constantly laughing and blabbering. She smiles at everyone which is super cute in public. It’s incredible how quickly she is growing and learning. I cannot believe it’s been almost half a year since I gave birth!

I’m looking forward to the weather warming up so she can discover the world around her!

tibemareyes  asked:

In SoF does the name Kira have anything to do with what her power might be? Like a shadow or electricon like Mare?

Honeslty, it had more to do with her metaphorically than literally with like a power. I suppose if I ever wrote another part for Song of Fire, Kira would be the beam of light in the darkness, sort of the light that keeps Mare and Cal together and leads them back to each other. The Russian meaning was my fav though, with the idea of being “Leader of the people”  “beloved” or “one the people look to” not because she would actually lead anyone as a general, but simply because that little beam of sunshine child would be a leader in innocence and trouble making, and would be someone that people look to for hope. Let’s be real, she is a combination of mare and cal, and that child could wreck the world, but smile at everyone afterward and giggle, and everyone would be like, awwwwwww, you set a building on fire, but oh my gosh you have such precious dimples.((((((: Also the names was partially contributed to her physical attributes. The Irish meaning for “little dark one” derives form “dark haired” and Kira does have dark hair, which goes a little bit darker in my mind as she gets older. 

I never really thought of what to do with the Japanese phonetic meaning that @chaoslaborantin pointed out, but I love it. Who knows, that kid could kill someday? No one knows though cause I didn’t write it and I doubt I would write that far into the future. XDD

Something that i want everyone to know



























Thank you for your attention!!!
