It's not often I get to hold a little baby girl less than a week old...but this week was one of those special times when I DID get to snuggle a little bundle.
Too tiny to recognize anyone or really see anyone clearly at this point in her little life. Everything has to be done for her as she wriggles and coos. Her sleeping was peaceful as I held her, rubbed her velvety head, held her minuscule finger and kissed her tiny toes.
Who all will she get to play with as she learns the ropes from her older brother and sister?
What will be her favorite foods to eat when she learns about solid food and is no longer counting on Mommy's milk?
When will she understand the LOVE that brought her about, that watches over her, that knows every hair on her head and has a plan for her?
Why will she have to struggle through lessons that will in-the-end protect her?
Too many questions to answer for sure, but I KNOW WHO is watching over her, caring for her, and I am eager to watch her grow into the beautiful young lady she will one day be...twenty years goes by WAY too quickly, in my opinion.
