...Avery Lola was on Sunday. Blessed by her father who stood holding her with the hands of two grandfathers, two uncles, three great uncles, and a friend.
...my life is every day. Blessed by this healthy, peaceful, beautiful baby. She is six weeks old today (six weeks=hula hooping resumed). She is merciful to her parents. Sleeping and eating so well. The first not to accept/need a pacifier. Her lovely slanty blue eyes light up with her new found grins.
My favorite part of motherhood started when Lucy was born and Seth had a sibling. To watch them love each other is the greatest gift. Avery tolerates much head-patting, foot-squeezing, and cheek-kissing by her sister Hazel. Lucy sits next to her in the middle row of the van and tells her stories while she holds her hand. Holding Avery, I can't pass by Seth without lowering her down for him to "see her face" and give her a firm hug.
This is what it's all about: spreading the love.
