I Know A Girl

We all drove to Jess' area.
There was lots to do.
I had my first piece of
pumpkin pie
this season at a local café.
It was so good with my coffee.
She just lives 5 minutes
from the ocean,
so we had to make a stop there.
Saw pretty flowers.
We washed, dried, and hung up
all the baby clothes.
Jess got the cutest clothes
at her shower
from family, friends.
Jess' mother-in-law and I
went to the gift shop.
I bought the baby a
ceramic box
with a pink Rosary,
and she found this.
We waited anxiously...
and a precious little one
was born to the world.
Say hello to
Jessica and Brian's baby,
There's an old saying,
"a bundle of joy."
As I was singing to her in
the rocking chair,
I was truly filled with 
wonder and joy. 
Jess and Brian
are going to be good parents.
I can tell already. ;)

CONGRATS!!!!! Beautiful little one. I know you are so happy right now. Wished I lived just a few minutes from the ocean. I missed my Calif. trip this yr and I missed the ocean. Beautiful shots.

Congratulations and blessings to your whole family! The little one looks so very cute... and she has a pretty name too. ♥

Thank you for your recent comments! I'm sorry I nowadays visit and comment so infrequently. When the cold and dark winter comes, I hope to have more time for blogging. :)

The cute little critter with ear-tufts (in my post about spruces) is a Eurasian red squirrel, in the grey winter coat. It looks chubby because of all those sunflower hearts and peanuts eaten from the bird feeder.

Big hugs!
