Well, as many of you might already know from my constant Twittering my little niece, Kimberly,who is only 3 years old, has been severely sick this past week and a half.  It was been an emotional roller coaster every step of the way!  It turns out she has an extremely bad case of pneumonia which has caused her to have two surgeries in just one week.  I have spent every waking moment away from the bakery right at her side, as she means more to me than words can express.  Praise the Lord that my little girl is getting better and on the road to recovery!  I can’t thank the Lord enough and am beyond blessed with an incredible set of family and friends.  Thank you so my sister who brought this little angel into my life and thank you to the Lord for keeping her with us!

Since at this very moment I am in the ICU unit with my princess I thought it perfectly fitting to share my love of my little Kimmy with all of you.  Since getting my new camera she has been my little model on every day off or family occasion, so I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!  I promise to get a blog post in with something edible soon…

    I love that picture of her with the french fries. She’s staring at them like she’s trying to figure out how to make them disappear. Ha!

    My thoughts are with you and your little Princess.

  17. Wanda says:

    I am so glad she is getting better and that the doctors has things under control. I have two little girls of my own and it makes me sad to see a kid sick and in the hospital for so long.
    Melody, God bless you for being a great person and the perfect aunty. I send big hugs from my family to yours and kisses to Kim. We’ll keep her on our prayers, God bless her!

    I hardly leave comments, but your niece is the same age as my oldest and my heart sinks at the thought of having to go through what you & your family has gone through with all of this. What a beautiful, special girl to have her auntie love on her so much. I know as a mama it means the world to me when my girls aunties or uncles care for them like they are their own.
    And I don’t think you need to apologize for you lack of food stuff, because your life intertwined with the food is what makes this blog something more. Prayers to all of you!

  31. Oh Melody, I am just catching up on everything that happened with Kimmy. My heart goes out to you, it is so hard to watch little ones go through pain. She is such a bright and beautiful little girl. Your family is in my prayers and I hope she has a quick recovery. Glad to hear she is finally home!
