the most wonderful peace

I got to spend several hours on Friday evening holding DH's new niece. Ally is about 6 weeks old. She was fussing and I got to her first. Then she snuggled right in to me and fell back to sleep. I settled in the big LazyBoy and we were both completely content. I had forgotten how peaceful it is to hold a sleeping baby. Every now and then she would stretch a wee bit and sigh. I sighed too. Her wee wrinkly neck and soft down on the top of her head smelled really good. They only stay so little for a smidgen of time. I am blessed that I got a piece of it all to myself.
