Sweet baby dreams....

What a difference a few days make....they seem to 'come into their little faces' settling down from their entry into this world.

All the children are entranced with this girl, the 9months of offering Holy Communions for a little girl have come to it's fruition for my oldest girl (10) much to her delight when she first heard the baby's cry at her birth, she awoke to new little sister and my oldest boy (13) told me yesterday, "Mum, I had wanted another boy but I just love this little girl!" he has been a very attentive and helpful chap since day one, he has taken this lovely photo himself, while she was sweetly dreaming in her hammock...

And while I so greatly relish the blessing of this gift from heaven, another treasure in the heart of my motherhood I am enjoying (and weeping) over the beautiful prayers and words from a lovely little book, Catholic Prayer Book for Mothers by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, in the early hours of the morning, while all are still asleep and I feed Annuncia in bed - I am being 'fed' too, from cover to cover, by it's words for the heart and soul.

Dear Anne
Your little girl is absolutely beautiful! She looks so peaceful asleep in her cradle. How on earth do you manage to read in the middle of the night? Even whilst feeding I have my eyes closed in hope of catching up on much needed sleep! Then again, you are feeding your soul..........bless you, Jacqui xx
