Not only was my amazing nephew, Shepard Mitt Romney, born

Reese's Pieces was the most perfect baby ever. Every time someone new held her

Happy momma and baby

Like the swirled dome atop the cone.
Snow cone lips are fun to kiss.
They tickle your cheek like a cold whisper.
Or they melt in your mouth,
With growing warmth.
But then another lick,And snow cone lips
