Baby Nora

An unexpected gift to our family, this little girl is joy in the flesh. Sweet and soft, small and patient, she is a little light, bringing dimpled grins wherever she goes. Each time we hold her, we breath in life a little more deeply, pause and linger over the moment with a little more care. The gratefulness we feel because of this precious girl is inexpressible. I spend each day gushing over her: squishing her cheeks, waiting for her smile and her sweet, tiny voice to call for me. She lives surrounded by love, as I hope she always, always will.

  1. ML Im so glad you painted baby Nora’s portrait. You have captured the essence of youth in your children’s faces with your gift of art. That’s something that a mere photograph cannot do!

      Thanks again sweet Carl! I’m happy to be able to create something of them and for them, hopefully another way to show how much I value them! I read a quote the other day that said “An artist chooses his subjects…that is the way (she) praises” 🙂
