Wonder of all wonderment!


Momentous moment when small form
First feels life in itself.
When new eyes open wide
On an old, old world.

When tiny hands handle air;
Touch tenderness and love.
When ears first wake to sound
And silent lips find voice and food.

God's fingerprints all over her --

Precious one,
So small,
So sweet

What a miracle
you are!

Ah! Sooooo precious!! I was hoping there would be more pictures here today, and hurray there were! The only problem with seeing them, is I yearn all the more to see the little darling in person!:)

Keep enjoying her for me until we get down there(I am sure that will be real hard?!!?). Thank you so much for more photos!!!

Love to you, and my 'new sister'!

So vivid and sweet... and true! I love this post Bethany! Your little sister is the darlingest doll in the world I'm almost sure! --Since Janae's no longer a newborn I can say that :)-- Thanks for the precious, precious pictures.. I'm sure you must enjoy to absolute NO END this delightful little subject to photograph. She is really very, very beautiful and I don't say that just to say so... She looks like a doll! How precious.

I'll spare you from my continued raving. I love that baby! Can't wait to meet her!

There is great debate down here, as to who the person is in the third picture........Mom is firm that it must be Mrs. Wissmann, while others say Ruth and I say Bethany!!!! Who is right?!?!?!?

What precious pictures, Bethany!!!! It looks like everyone is enjoying this new blessing!!!! We can't wait to meet her!!!!

Yes -- it is me! Can you believe it?! I made it in a picture with Charissa! Hannah enjoys using my camera and equipment when I let her, and she snapped this one yesterday. Didn't she do great?!
