Asha's Birthfamily

It was so amazing to be able to see Asha's birthfamily again. There was Mamma D, Asha's sister who just turned 6 and her brother who is 7 1/2. It was like they had never been apart. Asha's brother walked up to her and grabbed her little face and planted a kiss on her forehead. He saw her a few years ago when they came for a visit but her sister hadn't seen her since she was a baby. Asha's sister was very taken with her and followed her all over and we got some great pictures of the girls together.

By the time we got to the park it was already getting dark so I didn't get alot of pictures of Asha with Mamma D and the ones I did get are dark. Plus Asha was being a tease and would come like she was going to take a picture with Mamma D and then she would run away laughing.
It was so sweet when we got there Asha wanted to swing so Mamma D pushed her for probably 15 minutes on the swing and when Asha's sister wanted to push Mamma D told her that there were things adults had to do and she just had to keep pushing Asha. It was so great to see them together.

Asha would call her Mamma D and Mamma D would just beam. I don't think she stopped smiling the whole time we were there. There is this cute little song I made up when Asha was little Asha D baby D Asha D my baby girl well Asha sang it to them that way and then she sang it Mamma D baby D Mamma D my baby girl. It was so darn cute and we all cracked up laughing.

We only got to spend a few hours together but it was worth it.

Here are some pictures.

This was right when we got to the park. We met Asha's birthfamily there and the kids just kind of attacked her. It was so great to watch them. My friend took this one and when she sent it to me I almost melted. It is the sweetest picture ever.A family meal together. It was hard to get the kids to pose for pictures when there was pizza present so we just took every opportunity to get them together so ignore the pizza and look at the beautiful family.

Asha and her sister. My friend Deb couldn't believe how much Asha looked like her sister.

Asha's sister and Mamma D. It was much easier to get pictures of Mamma D and Asha's sister together because her brother was always off playing.
I do have more pictures but they are so dark. I need to work on making them lighter. I am just so happy that I got the ones that I got. I can't wait to print them and frame them in Asha's room.
We are so lucky that we got to spend time with them and that Asha got to see them again.

Thanks Mindy!! I do feel blessed to be able to have the time with Asha's birthfamily and to be able to get pictures like these for her. I think she will really treasure them when she gets older.
