The softness of her skin, the tiny perfection that reminds us that we're indeed "fearfully and wonderfully made." How can you describe the awe of holding a precious baby niece/grandbaby for the first time?!
Its been over a week since we met Joanna -- but as you may have noticed, last week had some delightful surprises for Elizabeth and I. A whirlwind visit to Dan and Bethany's for a week has significantly slowed my blogging. But it was totally worth it. I know -- that's a topic for another blog post!
Back to meeting Joanna... I wish we had a picture of the eager anticipation as we crammed for space in our picture window to watch Josiah and Abi's car pull into our driveway. And of their radiant faces as they were instantly smothered with hugs.
But we do have a few pictures of those precious moments as we met the little girl we'd already fallen in love with!
We studied each feature and gave our opinions on whether she looks more like her daddy or mommy. We decided she's the perfect mixture of both. Amazing, isn't it?!
