I ♥ babies...I have two little girls of my very own, and I am SO blessed.  Something about those beautiful little bundles just make me happy.  I can't help it but smile when I see new dads carrying the babies out of the birthing center at the hospital I work in to go home.

Now - there are some things I don't like...

sleepless nights
uncontrollable crying
those first few 'icky' diapers...
oh - and the cord -- WHAT is up with that?!?!  I know it's all "natural" but yeah, still kinda freaks me out.

I've been lucky enough in the last two weeks to get my teeny baby fill, and send them back off to their mamas (who look a bit tired, BTW ;) )

My card today is for one of those beautiful babies.  We had the honor of attending her Christening on Valentine's day, isn't that sweet?  Francesca is a sweet little thing, and her parents are just as wonderful.  I am so happy, as having a child was a far off dream, and thankfully with 1 part science, 2 parts love, and a dash of miracle, Francesa came to be.
I chose the sentiment "Nothing is worth more than this day" from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Blessings, as I felt it was perfect for the occasion.  May God bless and keep Francesca always.

Thanks for stopping by today -- I'll be back Thursday with a Pink Cat release!!!  Stay tuned...
