I Think of You

One of my favorite songs from the Phantom of the Opera has always been "Think of Me".

Think of me
Think of me fondly
when we've said goodbye
Remember me
Once in a while
Please promise me
you'll try

The other day Heather played with a toy for the first time.  I gently uncurled her little fingers which she always has clenched tight in a fist.  I took advantage of that inclination newborns have, and while her fingers were uncurled I placed the toy right on her palm, so easy for her tiny fingers to wrap back around and hold on tight.  And when she shook it for the first time, such delight!  Then she smiled, and while it was not her first smile, it was her first smile caused by a toy.  I paused for a moment, and thought of someone else.

It reminded me of another little baby, one who loved rattles, and loved smiling.  I still think of you sweet baby Tabitha.
