On Mother’s Day…

“There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.” ā€” Chinese Proverbs

My sister came to visit yesterday and brought all of her scrapbooking materials that she loves so much. Even though we are twins, we are creative in different ways and I am not the most crafty. It has taken me 10 years to finally create a baby album for my son! Here are two pages from the album which has got to be the MOST beautiful baby album of all time!!



What is a great baby album without a classic poem to endure through the ages? So far I like William Blake’s words in his poem Cradle Song for my son’s sweet, sleeping face:

Sleep, sleep, beauty bright,
Dreaming in the joys of night;
Sleep, sleep; in thy sleep
Little sorrows sit and weep.

Sweet babe, in thy face
Soft desires I can trace,
Secret joys and secret smiles,
Little pretty infant wiles.

As thy softest limbs I feel
Smiles as of the morning steal
O’er thy cheek, and o’er thy breast
Where thy little heart doth rest.

O the cunning wiles that creep
In thy little heart asleep!
When thy little heart doth wake,
Then the dreadful night shall break.
