Excerpt from A Christmas Child
Yet it was not a very big present, nor a very un common present. But it was very precious, and, to my thinking, very, very pretty; for it was a wee baby boy. Such a dear wee baby, I think you would have called it; so neat and tiny, and with such nice baby blue eyes. Its hands and feet, especially, were very delightful. Almost as pretty as newly hatched ducklings, aren't they? A little girl I know once said of some baby feet that She was admiring, and I really think She was right. No wonder was it, that the; happy people in the house by the sea were very proud of their Christmas-box, that the baby's mother, especi ally, thought there never was, never could be, any thing So Sweet as her baby Ted.
