Teeny tiny one!

Have you ever noticed that people (OK mostly women) just seem to stand around and stare at a newborn baby sleep?  It’s like we’re mesmerized and can’t take our eyes off, both in wonder and in anticipation that she might yawn or move a little.  Even the slightest movement gets oohs and ahs.  Last week I got to go stare at a new little bundle of joy.  I went to visit my dear friend Christine who just became a mommy on Mother’s Day!  She and Vic, who are home for a while before heading out to work overseas, welcomed little Selah Grace into the world at about 12:30 pm on Mother’s Day.  When I walked into the house, this cute little 3 day old sweetie was asleep on daddy’s chest.  That’s just about the most precious thing ever!  When daddy woke up he immediately asked if I wanted to hold her.  Of course!  I just kept holding her little hand in wonder at how teeny tiny those little fingernails are!  So cute!

So glad I took my camera!

    I am so glad you posted those pics! I wish I could be there in person to visit Christine, but it’s fun to see her baby on your blog.
