Precious Moments

Princess is 5 weeks old today. How did that happen? Weren't we in the hospital just yesterday celebrating her birth? Time has a way of getting away from us no matter how hard we try to hang onto it.
We are enjoying every minute with her. It brings smiles to our faces watching our older children get to know her & form their own special, individual relationships with her. I watched around the corner today as Bugs entertained Princess while she sat in her bouncy seat. He talked to her, made silly faces & peeked through her dangling toys. Too cute! His concern & love as he tried to comfort her when she began to cry (she was hungry) was precious. I was amazed at how gentle he was even though he is only 3 years old.

Princess started smiling & cooing last week. We all seem to have a daily quest of seeing who will receive the most smiles. Her grins melt us all. We are putty in her hands after receiving one. She looks straight in the recipients eyes & gives a full, open mouthed gummy grin. Precious! I hope to capture her beautiful smile with the camera soon.
Here is my favorite photo of her to date. Thank you, Lord for this special, priceless child.
