|She looks a lot like daddy |
and a little bit like Great grandma Peggy,
which is pretty fitting I'm thinking
As seen from midnight stairs the umpteenth time....
Kind of fluffy for a guy like him, but he looked good in it, step dancing out there, on the heifer barn roof.
When I came down again at dawn, droves of robins queued up to take a turn bathing in the big rut in the driveway.
Festooned with frosting, the trees were trailing veils of gauzy mist...the whole river was shrouded in it, the geese like mysterious strangers hiding from the unfurling sun.
I thought to take pictures of it all to save to show her what her first day looked like, someday when she is old enough to see them.
But I didn't, because I was too darned scared.
We were all scared and it was a long and worried day.......but worth every fearful second.
At the end the young family was increased by one, and the new parents knew a bond like no other.
And the new grandparents shed a couple of buckets of tears of pure, deep, elemental joy, that can only be engendered by the birth of one so loved.
Welcome to the world, Miss Peggy Ann Marie Schultz. We love you baby girl.
