Holding A

I went to visit my friend J last night and got to hold her newborn baby A (almost 3 weeks old). He was awake when I first got there and slowly fell asleep in my arms as J and I chatted. I love talking to newborns and looking into their eyes--there's a special connection there.

He's about the same age as my niece M and about the same size as my nephew C, both of whom were born recently. I can't hold them b/c they live so far away. But I did get to hold another precious little baby and that made my day.

Thanks J for letting me hold your little boy! Isn't he adorable?

What a sweetie, newborns have a very special look...I always think they still have a bit of heaven left on them.

I love holding sleeping babies (until my arms fall asleep). He really is so adorable! Lucky you to get to meet the infamous A. I wish you were all still with us every Sunday. :'(

It's funny, when I saw the title of your post I was like "Holding a.... what?" Adorable baby. Newborns are so sweet.

You can hold him any time!

Thanks for a great dinner.
