why Hello Master Fergus!

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you will have seen two of these photos already, but I really want to share them with readers here as well.

I love this one of newly minted big sister Harriet waiting for her mom to put baby brother Fergus in her arms

And then this one, with her look at mom just glowing with a confident intimacy, an almost conspiratorial exchange about this little fellow on her lap.

And now I'll tiptoe away and let the siblings get acquainted u
nder mom's guidance (isn't my daughter beautiful the morning after a wee hours home birth?)
Tiptoeing out of the room now . . .



Hope your weekend is going well. Spring's settling in here, and it's very welcome!

  2. Frances - these photos are awesome! And I cannot believe your daughter's elegance so soon after giving birth. Honestly, I was half-dead. She is entirely present.

    1. I know! She's pretty fab, right? Partly, it's the hair, which is like a force of its own -- thick, curly, and that colour! But she'd also be pretty amazing even bald. ;-)

  3. So sweet! And the captions are perfect! I agree that your daughter is amazing. Fergus is so clearly a newborn, but she doesn't look like she's recently given birth.

  4. Fergus looks so new! Your daughter looks so relaxed with her two little ones.

    1. Yes, we'll see if that relaxation lasts . . . things get a wee bit trickier as the numbers increase. . .

  5. How utterly precious. Thank you for sharing this. To see our sons as fathers is wonderful but thee is just nothing, nothing at all like the worry and the joy when our daughters give birth.

    1. It's so true, those unspoken (who would dare tempt fate by speaking them?!) worries, finally released. . . the joy on so many levels.

  6. Fergus! So Irish! All the beautiful things. Play him some Van Morrison, I bet he'll know the sound.

    1. And Yeats and Seamus Heaney . . . and he'll have to pay a visit one year to that emerald country. Perhaps Nana will have to plan a jaunt . . .

  7. What gorgeous shots. You daughter does look beautiful. I can't imagine where she gets her lovely curls from.

  10. These photos choke me up (in a good way) and remind me how simple love is, how we were put here to love. Thank you for sharing them, the photos are eloquent and beautiful.

    1. Aw, thanks, K. I can't help but think of you every single time I post a photo of a little one.

    1. Thanks, Alyson. I'm so happy with the name myself, I must admit.

  13. What precious pictures. The baby looks almost as big as his big sister. My family is past newborns. I envy you the new life. There is nothing like a new baby.

    1. We will soon be past newborns as well, I suspect, although there may be one or two for us yet. Hard to believe this second round (the grandchildren generation) is whipping by so quickly. . .

  14. They are all beautiful. Is he a redhead like Mum and big sister?

    1. Can't be sure yet, but it does look as if he might be ginger, at least, with a redhead's complexion -- perhaps not as red as his sister nor as dark/auburn as his mom's.

  15. These are so beyond priceless! Just beautiful!!

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
