When Keslie was born everything around us turned special and magical….That day was the most exciting day for my son Darren Luis (10/05/03) ..a baby sister was going to share his life and his sweet home. Keslie was the piece that was missing in our lives and we were so happy to have it. She was a healthy little girl weighing 6.8 lbs. She had a lot hair and beautiful eyes. The first thing she did after she was born was to look for mommy’s voice; recognized the singing and looked at mommy’s face. Right then I knew she was so special.
She was growing well, strong and fast. At the age of one month she flipped over and I knew she was going to be trouble too; in a silly way. She was so smart. She started crawling at the age of six months and walking at ten and half months. She also started talking in English and Spanish. Keslie’s first word was “agua” which it means water in Spanish. She loved butterflies and “pajaritos” (birds) , she called them “flies flies ” and ” pitos “. At two years old she starting potty training. Keslie would take off her diaper and sit on the potty training toilet every time someone went to the bathroom.
Her favorite cartoons and toys were Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Elmo, Dora, Kay-lan, and Blue Clues. Every time she wanted to watch one of these cartoons she would dress up, find a book and a toy with the same character. It was like she wanted match everything. She used to do that about four times a day with different characters Keslie was really a silly girl and we loved to see her doing that and sometimes she was driving us crazy; we miss that a lot. Her favorite song was “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”. She would ask us to play it every time we drove; she would say ” play ia ia o “. Her favorite meal was Cheerios with milk. If it was up to her, she would eat that more than four times a day.
Keslie loved to play outside and she was never afraid of adventure. She loved to be close to Darren, her grandparents and her cousins. They miss her a lot too and we wish this never had happened. She made us so happy that nothing will replace her. Keslie came to teach us about life; “either we appreciate it or never replace it. “
Keslie… ” We thought Angels where only in the sky, but now we know Angels come down to bring happiness… Keslie you are our Angel, Thank you for making us Happy ” Love Daddy, Mommy and Darren.
