It has been a most exciting time here this week. The circle of life has continued for us as we welcomed with great joy (and a few happy tears) the much-anticipated arrival of the newest member of our family – a beautiful and precious daughter for JT and his Gorgeous Girl. This dark-haired Sweet Pea is already the apple of her parent’s eyes. *g*
With a big thank you to The Provider who will be holding the fort while I’m away, I leave for New Zealand to see them all this week (as if I could have stayed away, lol). I can’t wait! There is something about a newborn baby that always turns my heart to mush and when it’s a close relative, it seems even more pronounced. Despite the fact that my own baby-making days are well and truly past me (and trust me, I am more than totally okay with that!) I can’t help being hypnotised by the cast of their spell. Babies are such treasures in my eyes. I love their unique, delicate, newborn scent, the way their tiny fingers are wont to curl so tight around one of your own and their complete and utter trust they willingly give in your arms to hold, protect and nuture. It’s truly a wondrous thing.
My mother, a very Groovy Grandma, is over the moon with her new granddaughter, as you can imagine. We’ve been gushing back and forth over the phone so much, it’s been hilarious. *g* While I know she adores her grandsons Hewie, Dewie & Louie to death, the arrival of our dear Sweet Pea now means she is finally free to make that fairy princess quilt she’s had her eye on for years! Up until now it’s been all action figures, skate-boarding and sports, lol.
So welcome to the world, Sweet Pea. I cannot wait to meet you. :o)
