Precious Clara ~


Do you know the kind of love that makes your chin quiver? The kind of love that makes your heart swell like the Grinch on Christmas Eve???? THAT, my sweet friends, is the love that I feel for this precious little girl ....... we all feel this love for our new baby Clara ~

And you were all right dear friends. About this grandmother gig........my heart is full, and I'm so very proud of my son Brent and sweet Emily. They are feeling the same exact feelings that I felt 26 years ago when my first precious son was born (Brent). The surreal feeling that you're in a dream and can't believe that it's you....having a child and falling so deeply in love in just a few short hours.

These are the precious moments that make life worth the living ~










Noah is in love too! And an uncle at eleven years old.....



I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psalms 139:14









Thank you my sweet friends for each and every comment you've left here......I'm am always astounded at the love that is shown here in this land of blog......and you wonder why I love blogging??? It is because of YOU dear friends!!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday ~
xxoo, Dawn

She is ever so precious and there is no other child in the whole world like her nor will there ever be. There is only one Clara, and you have so many memories to create!! Life really is such a miraculous and amazing gift don't you think?? :)

She still has that fresh new baby skins on her little face, honey. How precious they all are. I can't imagine doing what some women do today. It saddens my heart greatly! But this little sweet spirit is loved and blessed!

Hi Dawn,
Congratulations on your precious granddaughter. As a mom of 9, new life never ceases to amaze me. There's nothing like the smell, sound, and softness of a new baby. And yes, I fell in love over and over and over again each time, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Enjoy your blessing!

Hi Grandmaw!
I've sent you a little gift via email, Dawn, which I hope you like!
....also...Psssst! Just letting you know that I have an Exclusive Freebie on my blog Juno's Place in celebration of 5,000 Visitors, which is only available for those who leave a comment. (And an email address!)
It is a 2-part Template which when combined makes a template for a 12x12 Petal Envelope. I think it is the kind of thing that you will like, Dawn, and I would be delighted to share it with you in return for all the lovely images you share with all of us! :)
BTW, LOVE that scripture that you used today - perfect with the gorgeous photos.
Those toes!!
Warm Wishes

Sally L. Smith said...

Oh, your pictures made me cry again. Noah loving Clara--how sweet. My oldest was 11 when I had our youngest. He was a cool dude but melted when he held her. Noah is melting all over Clara with his love and that's beyond wonderful. She's so sweet and looks so smart already.

I can feel your "Grandma love" pouring through the computer. I pray I will be able to be where you are now in not so many years down the road. :)

God bless you and your new extended family!

Miss Sandy said...

Awww, she is melting my heart at her sweetness! I adore the pose of her little hands near her face and the tiny round "o" of her tiny rosebud mouth.

You can't explain to someone who does not have a grandchild the feeling but oh do they find out when they have one! Dawn she is so precious. Enjoy your little blessing today!

Bambi said...

You are so correct. No words can describe it until you actually experience it! And she is so precious. Love the picture of Noah and Clara! Such joy one little soul can bring to so many!

Oh Dawn , each moment will grow sweeter !! our grandchildren are so precious -- I saw this quote somewhere and made several things for friends with it -- It is cherished -- Children are messages we send to a time we will never know -- So as a Christian Mother and Grandmother -I love instilling love and caring that they will remember when they have their own grandchildren -Kathy - ga

Beautiful beautiful pictures of a precious gift indeed.

Christine D said...

I must say--awesome pictures!!! I especially love the foot, so completely adorable! Try converting all of these pictures to black & white or sepia and they will make the most precious and timeless pictures...to use in your own personal artwork perhaps?!? You can view my blog, first post for ideas!! I wish Emily a quick and speedy recovery, and that all of you are getting a tiny bit of rest in between all of your cuddling! :0)

She is just so precious! I will never know the feeling, as my son and daughter-in-law cannot have children. I'm sure I would be in heaven with a baby to hold and spoil. I am so happy for you, Dawn!

Your pics of Clara are so sweet! I have a picture I'm going to send you, I just have to find it. It's a tiny card from my motherinlaw when my 1st child was born!

Shopgirl said...

She is so pretty, I know just how you are feeling. It kinda like a out of body thing. I love all the picture, wonderful, wonderful most excellent! I like the second one really well, she looks like she is singing. My Mother would call it the baby bird look...whatever it is she is only starting her adventure in making you smile, laugh, cry and worry. She is Clara, in all our hearts tonight.

Halo Hill said...

Isn't it SO true? You can't possibly explain the "grandmother love" thing to anyone, you have to experience it for yourself. She is Gorgeous. And a lucky little princess to have you. What is your grandma name? Mine is Mimi.

Hugs,
Sheila
