A is for Annabelle


Is for Annabelle

I'm joining my friend Jenny Matlock in her new 26 week alphabet course. Though I've a good many alphabet books on my bookshelves and at first thought that I might use them for my post today, I decided instead to share the exciting news of the birth of my precious grand niece, Annabelle Fay, who arrived January 17, 2010. This bundle of joy, surprised us a month early.



At 5 pounds 4 ounces, Annabelle is tiny but healthy. Here she is in her mommy's arms, just two hours old.



The miracle of life is an Amazing sight to behold.

You'll find more Alphabe-Thursday participants here.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

So all thoughts are of babies around here. We find out the sex this week. I can't believe how excited I am about this new little family member coming. Babies are such a wonderful gift.
