My Little Cup of Tea


Miss Mary Ann


Fills my cup of tea with....



The aroma of sweet baby smell....


Crystal blue eyes that melt my heart.....


Warm cuddles....


Complete and utter joy.....


Pure love......


And cries that can break my heart!


Life has been full and busy (a good busy), I haven't shared much about Miss Mary Ann. Oh how I love each moment and phase with her, from the first days with little sleep and the bouts of crying... tough at the time but is passes quickly. These are the things I'm savoring and soaking in holding her for nap time cuddles, the fragrance of her skin, listening and watching her Daddy hold her and sing to her, gazing at her while she sleeps with fist clinched tight up near her face, her hair that brushes up under my chin as I rock her, when her eyes light up and glisten as she watches the ceiling fan turn, the sound of siblings giving her kisses, her wet face after Ruth Ella and Wesley kiss her, quite times for nursing, seeing her brothers hold her so tenderly, her precious open mouth smiles, and her coos that are like a sweet melody to my ears. Once again I am in love....as are the other 12 people in this house:)


Mary Ann is 10 weeks old today, these pictures were taken at 8 weeks.

She looks a bit bewildered about what you all are doing. She needs to get used to that camera - - - especially since she is so beautifully photogenic!

Hope you are staying well!!

Those have to be some of the most adorable pictures! And that last one is just the best! How do you ever resist her when she cries like that.
