latest candids

cute lil' morning face!

"Mom, I'm still in my PJ's!"

I have lost count of the number of times I've been overwhelmed with the incredible joy of being her mommy! Yes, it calls for much self-denial, less sleep, more laundry, a lot of sweat and hard work to get back in shape, and a host other things which I'm sure to discover in the days to come. Yet the words come to mind: "The days are long; the years are short." 
Before I know it I'll be packing up her baby clothes...braiding her hair...teaching her to drive...   and when those days come, I want to look back and know that I've embraced and made the most of each and every day. 

Life is so precious! 

talk about bright blue eyes [smile]

Loved the pictures, she's a beautiful bundle of joy! My 10 year old niece has lovely green eyes, my 3 year old nephew has blue-grey eyes and my almost 7 month old niece has lovely blue eyes. My oldest brother's eyes can be green sometimes and blue sometimes it depends on what color shirt he's wearing.

Anonymous -- yes, I was aware of the bumbo issue. Instead of recalling the seats, they sent a seatbelt to be fastened into the bumbo to meet the safety requirements. :)

She is so adorable! And looks so cuddly! When we had a boy this last time I was(and AM) SO happy and excited(for many reasons, one being that I always wanted a brother and was excited for our daughter to have a brother). But your pictures make me miss having a pretty little baby girl!
Nevertheless, boy or girl, babies are an immeasurable blessing and joy!
