Father asked us, “What was God’s noblest work?” Anna said, “Men”, but I said “Babies”. Men are often bad, but babies never are.
- Louisa May Alcott.
I have a new niece! She was born Monday afternoon, and last night I was able to make the trip up to the hospital to meet her. Such a wonderful experience to meet someone who's so recently come from Heaven!
This newest little girl is so strong! She was lifting and moving her head and kicking her arms and legs with such power. She'll be a tall girl I think, like her paternal grandfather. There's a gentleness in her too though. Such a special, gentle little spirit that I found it incredibly difficult to leave the hospital for the long drive home. She just kept pulling me back into the room!
(That and the fact that I mistook the bathroom for the exit and had to come back into the room in order to actually exit).
She's beautiful. With wonderful parents, and so much promise.
So welcome to the world baby girl! I can't wait to see you grow and learn and develop. And I can't wait to get to know you better and spend many fun hours playing and being your (favourite) Aunty :)
