Welcome to life, Bella Noel
Bella Noel May entered our world Thursday with the uncanny ability to change lives. She definitely brought an immeasurable warmth to this grandma’s heart.
Time finds inventions, research, discoveries and technology continuing to change the world at an insurmountable pace. In my book, there’s just nothing that will ever surpass the miracle of birth.
We’ve known a girl would join our family for months. It’s obviously not a new concept as it happens every day, every minute. But that first look at sweet Bella once again struck me with awe. Ten fingers, ten toes, a tiny little nose and every perfect detail of a healthy human being. What a blessing.
Focus moved to Tucker and Lyla, Bella’s adorable twin brother and sister who turned two just two weeks earlier. Personalities begin forming immediately with each stage bringing excitement in this miracle of life.
Victories of first taking a breath, smiling, giggling, rolling over, enjoying books, playing, crawling, walking, feeding themselves, talking, singing, playing and learning are fascinating feats as they gain independence and display their uniqueness.
Celeste and Matt give their all to their role of parenting, creating an environment of learning, laughing and loving. Their little cherubs don’t know how blessed they are as they begin each new day in a comfortable, caring and encouraging environment.
Bringing home just one little bundle this time around definitely lightens the demands, especially since Bella is content and cooperative. What a fun new toy for her siblings to hold and evaluate, a living toy who added a new dimension to an already special family.
You already know how quickly children grow, Celeste and Matt. Bless your family as you all bond and blossom. Love you to pieces, Tucker and Lyla. Your bubbly spunk is so refreshing and entertaining.
Welcome to my world, Bella. Be prepared for good times ahead.
