Gamila's phases - the lost red rose!

I am not a fan of posting videos but I know Samia and Gamila would enjoy the many phases of Gamila at around 15 months:

She loves to dance she always does the same little waddle dance. You are also talking up a storm and every time we tell you NO you start doing this game with your eyes, baba is gaga over it.

Also while doing my spring cleaning nenas I stumble upon the gadget baba used to propose marriage exactly 6 years ago this month, not sure what date exactly it was I do remember it was a week day because I had just gotten out of work and since it was tax season I had had long day at work. So after work I went to pick up baba in Astoria, he came down with a bouquet of red roses. I remember he started driving and I was holding the bouquet I think it had maybe 16 or 20 red roses they were so beautiful and I kept on telling him. Thank you Habibi
.
I did notice baba was a bit nervous and he kept on asking me about the roses and he would say something like look at them in detail...I think we drove for about 5 minutes when baba said something like, habibi count how many they are -- even then I could not figure it out. Baba was getting annoyed when all of a sudden he said something like "look more in detail" Wallah what did I found this red rose made out of felt it was hard to take it apart from the whole bouquet and I open it and to my surprise I found my engagement ring.


Samia while I was cleaning last week you found it and I had to chase you around the house to take it away from you. You wanted to play with it..and I was like NO NO let me have that ...now you know why nena.

Baba and I always laugh at this and he is like you could not find it Ms. Detail oriented and I am like cut me some slack I had being working for 14 hours looking at numbers left and right do you think I could find that flower in something like this in the dark.
