Welcome, Baby Girl

Yesterday, our niece gave birth to a beautiful new baby girl.  My husband's younger brother became a Papa and our sister-in-law became a Moomee, and they are, to quote the newly-minted grandma, absolutely "over the moon." They raised four beautiful, talented, and exceptional daughters of their own, and now their oldest baby has become a mommy.

Our niece is a mother!  Her life is forever changed, and she's about to embark on the most amazing ride of her life.  In honor of this blessed event, here is a quote from dear St. Therese of Lisieux.
Once upon a time, there was a little girl with the biggest blue eyes you've ever seen and the sweetest smile on earth, a little girl who smiled her shy smile at you with her head dipped to one side in a way that was heart-melting.  That little girl grew up to be an extraordinary young woman, and she married her very own Prince Charming.  With the addition of this new life, this new little girl they've brought into the world (a princess, to be sure!), this wonderful couple has created a family--they have created their own little domestic Church. May God continue to bless them, and may they all live happily ever after!
