Little Ones Bring the Greatest Pleasures

Our family was blessed with two baby girls, my first grand children.

Mother and babies are doing well, despite a somewhat early arrival.

They are such tiny little creatures and perfect in every way.

Holding them, softly stroking their skin and hair, and smelling their baby-sweet skin is a unique sensory experience.

Already, they have silky black hair, so soft to the touch.
Their skin is tender and almost transparent.

Their doll-size fingers and toes have tiny nails, already capable of accidentally scratching their own face. Tiny hands can grasp and hold with surprising firmness.

Sweet little faces, expressive, even when they are asleep – tiny smiles, frowns, sighs, and little shrieks all tell about an untold inner dream life. We will never know what they dream about or remember our own from that time.

Newborn eyes still seem to gaze inward, not fully focused yet on this strange new world they have just entered.

What lives will they lead, what personalities will they develop, what likes and dislikes will distinguish them as separate little girls? One thing they can be sure of – there are many people who love and care for them. They are healthy, safe, and protected – such a privilege to start out with.

    Oh Annette, from one new grandmother (my first grandchild is ten weeks old now) to another, heartfelt congratulations to you. “Newborn eyes still seem to gaze inward” – that’s a truth. Those first few days and weeks they inhabit a special place, don’t they, of the world but not entirely in it … yet …
    Beautiful, beautiful post, thank-you!

  26. These bundle of joy are wonders of art. They are beautiful!
    Babies reminds us that life is fragile. You get tough as you get older but think about how much Love makes an impact on their lives. They always put a smile on people, no matter how “messy”they could get.
    Having a child makes you even more appreciate life. This post reminds me so much when I had my daughter, time flies so quickly and you need to enjoy the baby stage.
