This is Olivia

at 17 days new.
 

I wanted this post to contain words to tell you how I feel about this little girl. I wanted to articulate the way she humbles me and reminds me that life is full of new beginnings, how tiny and floppy and frail she felt as she was passed from one aunt to another last weekend. And the way the simplest little twitch of her mouth sends everyone around her scurrying because we all want to make her happy. She's just a perfect little miracle and a breath of fresh air for our family.
 
There's something so magical about having a new baby in the family - something I'm still soaking in and processing in my mind and heart. So instead of a whole bunch of jumbled and mushy words today, I'm giving you a whole bunch of photos of Olivia's little world right now.
 

Olivia's mommy stenciled this design on the wall over her crib. Photos don't do it justice - it is gorgeous!
 





Of course, I took some photos of my brother, Ron, with his wife, Ryann and their new baby girl. I loved having the opportunity to photograph them! I think this one is my favorite:





 Great big love in a teeny tiny package.
My heart does flip-flops over her.

PS: I made Olivia's PaperTurtle onesie by using an iron-on transfer sheet. I thought she looked adorable in it! :o)

What a darling baby; no wonder she has stolen your heart! Will you make a scrapbook for her of your visit to meet her? That would be a wonderful thing.

Congratulations to the parents and to Olivia's Aunts. It's obvious Olivia will grow in a loving home. May God Bless Olivia always.

Doing a great big catch-up today Deb. Oh, how I've loved you posts from the last week or so. These pix are just gorgeous, as is the big family shot. Your post on hunger really touched my heart. Paul has always volunteered and donated to food banks because, as he puts it, what could ever be wrong with feeding people?
