Acacia Rose arrived home a few days after her birth. I know the kids were so glad to finally be back in their own nest, and to be able to settle down to being a family. Shadow-cat was full of curiosity, but he quickly learned to behave himself around little Acacia.
I think she is totally gorgeous... and I am not one bit prejudiced about that! I couldn't get enough of holding this precious little bundle in my arms.
Gazing at her, I wonder: What do the newly born think of? How does the world look to them? What is really important in this life?
Baby feet amaze me: they have never been walked on and are as soft as the rest of baby's skin. I just love tiny baby toes!
This is the smile that can make all your problems just melt away, and fill your heart with such joy! She was only 4 days old. Admit it - you're smiling now, too. :-)
Three generations... a circle of love.
I am so very blessed to have had this time with my daughter. Thank you, Lori & Dave, for allowing me to share it with you. And to Mike, for arranging for me to be able to go.
