Silky, Smiley, and Sweet

I’m sure other things were just lovely, but meeting my new baby nephew has been — by far — the best part of my week, so my three beautiful things are all about him.

1. His hair is curly as can be, and yet is as soft as silk.

2. He has dimples, two of them, and smiles often enough to make their presence well known.

3. I got to spend a couple of hours snuggled up on the couch with him today, with a nice sunbeam warming us through the window. It was about as good as life gets.

    That does sound exquisitely beautiful. Congratulations to you and Eileen and Chris and Baby for celebrating the best part of the holidays — together time.

    So jealous!!! I actually miss babies now. I guess it’s finally being far enough away from the sleeplessness that I can finally look back fondly. 🙂

    Held a 6-wk-old this morning and thought of you. I’m so used to holding / bracing against the bigger ones now that I was just shocked by how light and cuddly and just adorable this one was. Were mine EVER that little??? So very jealous of you, Sarah (and parents)!!!
