These are the good ol' days ~






I always try to remind myself of this fact...
that THESE truly are the days memories are made of ~
Of course all of our days are
but
to see out little granddaughter Clara
see her little brother Murray
for the very first time
was one of those special moments
you never, ever get again!!

We took Clara to the hospital Thursday to see her mama and daddy but
most of all to meet her precious new sibling!

I snapped a few photos to share with you and for us to treasure always:


A very happy little girl...we were almost there!!!



Uncle Noah came along as well...



The very first moment she saw her little brother....
a tired but proud mama holding her angels ~


And now she gets to hold Murray herself!



Daddy looks on as Clara examines everything about him ~





I don't know what this look is but
I do know this...
this angel Clara is a ham and loves the camera!



More examination ensues...she had to see his fingers and toes!




One last stop by the nursery before leaving
and it had a beautiful,
giant carousel giraffe in front!!!
Such a happy and very big sister....



Thank you Lord for letting me witness this joy...
this truly was one of the good ol' days!!!!

And thank you so much for indulging me and letting me
share my family with you ~
and also for your sweet, sweet comments,
I have just loved each and every one!

Wishing you a wonderful fall Friday precious friends!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Wonderful pictures and memories, Dawn! I'll bet she was so excited in the car on the way to see her baby brother.

Cyn said...

You can see, Clara is so excited to have her lil brother. She is going to make an awesome big sis.

Vee said...

He did. I knew it. He thinks Clara (in the photo where you describe her as a bit of a ham) has the look of some new brides. He calls it the "I've got him now" look. So cute!

Such beautiful moments captured on camera!! Your new grandson is so perfect and beautiful and Clara looks so happy and so beautiful too. May they flourish in the love that surrounds them in grow up in the Lord, cherishing everyday as a gift. You are so right, we only have this moment, so we should receive it with joy and thanksgiving always. So happy for your family. Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for sharing your joy with all of us. Linda

What beautiful photos you have taken of your precious grandchildren (and Emily, Brent and Noah, too!)!! I got tears in my eyes looking at the ones of Clara delighting in her baby brother. Oh, and the one of Emily and her two babies should be enlarged and put in an 8x10 frame... it's gorgeous.

A million (((hugs))) to you, dear Dawn, as you continue to relish in these "good old days"!

Very, very precious! Reminds me so much of my granddaughter wanting to see her new little brother's toes and fingers :) She is firmly convinced that when he fusses, he is wanting for her to hold his arm and hand. LOL I love it!!

Such precious photos! Congratulations on the arrival of your grandson, Murray! What a handsome guy! He was 7 oz. more than my youngest, and I thought mine was a big boy! Great job to his mama! Clara is going to be an awesome big sister. You can see the love in her eyes.
