Welcome to the World, Kaylee Addison

baby girl, new baby smell
a cry so robust for tiny lungs
you nuzzled yourself up
under my chin and right
into my heart. 

Little one
cerulean eyes that sparkle
pink bow in chestnut hair
an awareness and a smile that
illuminates even this photo.

 I love
your newness, your snuggle, your
sounds, your beauty, the outfits,
how you look when you sleep, what
you wear, and your energy.  I love your
smile when I talk to you, how
you have brightened my life,
that you are my great granddaughter,
how I love you so deeply.

May the world
treat you kindly, and you be blessed
with all that is good. May your pain
be little and your joy big, you find
the world accommodating to your needs
and always welcome you with open arms.

What a sweet poem! Captures the innocence and the fragility of a newborn child quite well. Reading this quite made my day. Congratulations on getting a granddaughter.

Dear Judy,

Congratulations on having this beautiful granddaughter.
Your words are loving and written with such proud and tender thoughts.

I am looking forward to being in that grandmother position, in about one month also!!

Best wishes, Eileen
