i had been out of the all-knowing loop while in school… but i do hate that i missed this… so i’m sending “awws” your way now. isn’t this the most precious picture ever?
mariska hargitay, uber star of law & order: special victims unit, adopted amaya josephine in april. from right here in the good ol’ u.s. of a.
As reported on people.com:
“We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We’re just so happy she’s here.”
And there’s one family member who’s more excited than anyone: Hargitay’s 4½-year-old son, August.
“He is over the moon,” says the actress. “He calls her his baby because he says the whole thing was his idea. He always talks about how he’s going to protect her. He’s going to be a great big brother.”
of course this is one of the cutest couples i know… jessica & honor!!! that girl looks like her daddy!!! )
i always hear other parents saying, “they grow so fast…” and now i know exactly what they mean.
before, i just agreed and said, “yeah i knowwwww…” while not fully understanding. i knew that my daughter, emory, grew out of her infant clothes and shoes before she even wore a lot of them, but now, i absolutely realize the true meaning of the statement. in the past two months, i’ve watched and experienced her get taller, gain weight, get smarter and her vocabulary increase.
hell, even her hair went through a growth spurt. here i thought i was going to have to give her a mohawk on her 2nd birthday. (picture angel brown – mel b’s daughter) i said to myself and a couple of friends that emory would definitely rock this look if her hair didn’t get any longer! and was well prepared to give it to her… while a bunch of other mothers and friends were shocked in disbelief that i might not go through with it. well — you all lucked out this time!
the honor of being a mom is completely and truly special… emory is so caring, watchful, and still so very curious about EVERYTHING! her vocabulary has skyrocketed… i just hope her smartness — that she got from me of course — continues throughout college! ) i watch her sleep at night and think to myself, ” i must be the luckiest person alive“! but i guess most every mom feels that overwhelmingly unconditional love for their child.
i said all of that to say that “damn!”
now, i have to go out and buy new shoes, new clothes and new toys (more geared to her age & play level) because she’s outgrown almost everything in her closet… how did that happen? sheesh kids are expensive!!!
john edwards has alledgedly proposed to rielle hunter — baby mama!
what typically happens when men act with their heads and not their brains is that they cheat, have a baby outside the relationship/marriage, get caught, deny the baby, deny the outside relationship, get scorned by the public and media, have to drop out of a presidential race, make up with your wife, have your wife accept your outside child, be left out of your now deceased wife’s will, then marry the baby mama that you denied in the 1st place that you were ever seeing!!!!
that is just WAY too much drama for any network soap opera!
no — maybe that is exactly the drama that he was trying to live up to!!!
either way… you’re an idiot!!!!
hey, but at least he’s a part of his baby’s life, which is more than i can say about my own daughter’s “donor!”
sandra bullock & her son — louis (6-1/2 months) — at the airport in texas…. he’s so frickin’ cute, it’s a shame!!!!
the key to raising a budding, soon-to-be 2 year old is discipline, portion control, love hard and smile often.
any questions? let’s just hope this works.
