World’s Sweetest Miracle

A little bit of heaven
Drifted down from above –
A handful of happiness,
A heartful of love.
The mystery of life,
So sacred and sweet
The giver of joy
So deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
So lovable, too
The world’s sweetest miracle,
Baby girl, is you.

Tomorrow Shelby hits 4 weeks old. I can not believe how fast the days go by. It seems the days and times all run together while I sit and stare at this perfect little person.

We have had our issues with nursing in the beginning. But now we are getting used to it and it’s getting much easier.  Most nights I am up until the week hours rocking her to sleep. I am so grateful for my Glider.  I really was not going to purchase one because of the price but now I am so happy I did. I use it on a daily basis and it is beyond comfortable.

This past week Shelby was weighed at the midwife’s office and she is 9 pounds 14 ounces! Yep.. mommy’s milk is doing the job!

When I am laying there at 4 am nursing her in bed I just stare at her. I still can not believe she is here, and is my precious daughter. She brings so much joy to my heart. She amazes me every second of the day.

I am so grateful for my three beautiful daughters.

    Your baby reminds me of my sweet children when they were born. They’re becoming a little feisty now that they’re growing up but they are still so very sweet! I hope your baby grows up beautifully!
