Sweet and Fresh



 There's a sweet new little man in my life. Felix Alexander, born on Feb 11 to our daughter-in-law and son. 8 lbs, 3 oz. So perfectly new - a blessing from God. I love this photo, taken in the hospital when we took Little Miss A up to meet her baby brother. The focus of this photo is his darling face, but look on the outskirts - all the hands. Sister hands, cousin hands, mommy hands. Hands of love, big and little. Hands to help. Hands to share. Hands to play. Little Felix, you are so welcome in our world.


Yesterday, Little Miss A and I waited at her house so she could welcome him home from the hospital. Here she is holding him for the first time - an Iphone photo taken by an emotional Nana.

Heart full.

I love the first photo of him wrapped in swaddling clothes....and yes all the hands that he will need to help him in his life ahead. Nurturing, caring, loving and playing hands.... a beautiful photo.

The first thing I noticed were the hands - what a delightful picture. And I think Little Miss A holding baby might be one of the all-time cutest baby photos ever.
