Is there anything more heavenly than a newborn baby? Don't get me wrong, there are the sleepless nights, the midnight feedings, and the overwhelming exhaustion. But there are the moments of sweet stillness, newborn sighs, and yearning baby stretches that fill your heart with so much love it can burst!
Darleen and Patrick entered the beautiful and crazy world of newborns for the third time this past July. Their sons became big brothers and have dutifully loved on their baby sister since she entered their world. There is something special about having a little sister that makes one's responsibility very important and I have no doubt these boys will be the best big brothers for her. I'm sure there will be a little teasing that goes along with the job, but that is what it's all about!
I had so much fun spending the morning with Darleen, Patrick and their kids that the time went by too quickly! I loved watching their baby girl smile into her parent's faces as they held and cuddled her. She has a fascination for her mom's hair that brings a huge smile to her face which, of course, makes you smile back. There are smiles and laughter ahead for this wonderful family.
Congratulations again, Darleen and Patrick! Thank you for letting me capture this sweet time for you!
