Rockin' the Bow

Haylee Kate
doing great!
(a poem)
Yep - the bow is GINORMOUS,
but this is the south and this is how
baby girl's roll in these parts.  Every baby girl
has gotta be able to "rock the bow", so they  begin
the balancing act in the crib.

10 days old. 
Eating. Sleeping. Filling diapers.
Growing stronger every single day.

Things are crazy, busy, beautiful here.  I'm way behind on laundry.  The kitchen floor needs to be mopped.  
All in due time.  I'm taking time to enjoy all the sweet baby "moments".
Burps.  Gassy smiles.  Wiggles.
She's a bundle of entertainment wrapped in pink.
Confession: sometimes we all sit and simply watch her sleep.

Li'l Mama is doing well.
She has taken to motherhood very nicely, making bottles, changing diapers, and getting up throughout the night.  She seems to delight in every moment, like most new Mom's do.

I know many of you are grandparents so you fully know the joy of having a grandchild.  This is our fourth Granddoll and we revel in all these precious girls God has put into our life.

Feeling very blessed.

And now it is MY turn to feel somewhat envious of the baby in the house. Ours are growing up! :-(
Haylee Kate is just so very precious. I can see why you sit around looking at her. I would too.

"The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
For children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep."
Your post reminded me of this poem...it sounds like you are doing just the right things. Enjoy every minute.

Love the bow ;). We're so blessed to have granddaughters who live close to us where we can be part of their lives and watch them grow. Housework will always be there but continue to enjoy these precious first days with your daughter and grand doll. Glad they're both doing well :) xx

So very thankful to see the happily ever after story continuing because your family chose to remember the baby is a BLESSING not a BURDEN.

Remember, the floor doesn't have to be mopped until Haylee starts crawling. So, ya' got a few months...
