Magic Hour

It has been a very long time since I lasted posted something...

Life has slightly changed (okay, more like an earth-shattering kind of change) for me.  Last time I was still busy planning our holiday to France and Italy.  And then two days before we went on our dream holiday, I found out I was pregnant...

Our holiday was amazing, although somewhat interesting with a tiny blueberry, who we called Stripes, in my tummy... (more posts on that later)...

Stripes has now been born and his name is Xander which suits him better (more posts about him later too).

My life is now full of diaper changes, burping, feeding (baby and myself and hubby), trying to get baby to sleep, trying to get some sleep myself (which I fail at miserably) and looking for hours at this little miracle of life in my arms...

He is a very alert baby - always looking around and not loving sleep at all (quite like his mommy), but I know he is going to be wonderfully clever.  He he.  This means we go for lots of (especially late afternoon) walks in the sling as this is the only place he will always take a little nap.

These walks are so precious...   I am carrying the most beautiful boy in the world close to my heart, I get to see so many beautiful things on the way and I have lots of time to talk to God.

I call it Magic Hour...

and here are some of the photos
















































And just one to show I wasn't joking about the most beautiful boy in the world...




Okay, back to my weird and wonderful life... Always remember - beauty is all around us.

The Glorious Sunset

 
There was once a sunset... so glorious, so splendid, so magical that a little girl was completely enchanted by it. 
 
 
"Where do all the colours come from Daddy?" 
 
"It was painted by the Great Artist"
 
"Why is the sun so big and beautiful?" 
 
"So that we can see it clearly and enjoy it and thank the Great Artist"
 
"Why is it going down Daddy?" 
 
"All things in life has an ending Little One, but usually it means the start of something else"
 
"But what will the ending of this day mean?"
 
"That a new night has started and nature and people can rest and recover"
 
"Will it be dark then?"
 
"Yes it will be dark - except for the light of the moons and the stars"
 
"I don't like the dark Daddy.  Why does it have to be dark?"
 
"I think the Great Artist knew, that it takes a certain amount of darkness for us human beings to appreciate the light"
 
"I do love the light"
 
 
And she drank in the sunset while feeling safe in her Father's arms....
