I first met her about a year and a half ago, she was 6 months old and grinned at me toothlessly. She was my granddaughter, Akane, and it was during a strange reunion that my first husband engineered between our daughter and myself.

I saw that little smile, her eyes, crinkled up into little bananas just like her mother's, and I fell in love with this child, just as I had the first time I laid eyes on her mother when she was laid in my arms. In fact, she had her mother Tami's smile, a smile which echoed my own. Yes, the banana eyed smile was a trait that would be passed through generations, it would seem.

The reunion lasted about 5 months, but they are five of the most memorable months that I cherish, laughing with my daughter, loving her and getting to know her again, and loving and getting to know this smiling child, this little grinning pixie, just like her mother.

It's been almost 15 months since I last saw my daughter and granddaughter. They both had birthdays within the last two months. I sent cards, and a gift, and I've not heard. This makes me sad as I love them both immensely. But still I cannot help but smile myself, as I think of their banana eyed smiles.

Since [livejournal.com profile] hgm gave me a huge compliment of telling me how much Akane looks like me, I made this icon of the first picture I posted in my last post.

What a little doll! I can only imagine how sweet she is.

Akane, Grandma Morgie loves you!
