A baby fills a place in your heart you never knew was empty.

This sweet doll is such a special baby. Her mama was so nervous about her arrival after suffering a pregnancy loss, and losing both grandparents. Darling Ellie arrived as her family's little rainbow of healing. This little sweetheart was named after her beloved great-grandma and great-grandpa. 

In spite of her great dislike to be anything but cuddled in her sweet slumber, and the storm that rolled in robbing me of my natural light source, her perfect doll face and crazy newborn fuzz made my heart sing. I just adore how her pictures turned out.
