I still haven’t been able to go back and share her newborn and baptism pictures… Maybe someday! I took these pictures this morning before leaving for Mass and just had to share them with you all.
As of this last Tuesday (Nov 19th) she weighed 10 pounds even! She watches me everywhere I go, at least the occasional times she allows me to put her down… She has been rolling over for a few weeks now, from her back to her tummy, and has the sweetest coos and giggles for all of us. She’s pretty cute!

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
