After all these months and wonderings and anticipation, here you lie. So still. So peaceful. So perfect. Love unconditional born. Already you've changed us in so many ways....heart, soul, body, faith. You have entered our world and rocked it irrevocably and entirely. You've captivated us completely.
I can't tell you how many times we (meaning every single person who already loved you) sat together imagining your features, your smile, your tiny toes and fingers. Gawking in awe at itty bitty pink dresses..."a human is going to fill these tiny clothes"...we'd breathe softly to each other.
We painted your room, made you blankets and hats, showered your momma with love, gifts, and good wishes.
"No baby has ever been so loved," we coo into our children's ears. And its true to the core. You are no exception. You have been born into a family with no shortage of love, affection and pure tenderness. You have no other choice, your life will be good.
You are obviously the luckiest human ever...did you win a contest in heaven, and your parents were the prize? Jackpot. You will never in your entire life be without: love, laughter, good food, amazing people, sweet music, beautiful spaces, God and Jesus. Tessa and Charlie. They are exceptional to the core. Congratulations Louise.
You have been on this earth for one week and two days Louise. Already we are gawking and cooing and head-over-heels in love with you. Keep up the good work. We're so excited to get to know you. Welcome to this world, to our family and to our hearts. Happy Birthday my sweet niece.
