it’s a moment from 5 years ago… but one i was transported back to this week, when i had the honor of holding my dear friend’s not-yet-24-hour-old son… who also happens to have an abundance of dark hair and was very alert as i held him, like my own baby boy was. ok, so maybe he is a bit smaller than my baby, at a mere 7 lbs 8 ounces… but i will let that slide. it’s still a good healthy size for a baby (even if it’s nowhere near 11 lbs 15 ounces) and i’m so grateful for the chance to get to know this new little human being, and grateful for his safe arrival into my friend’s loving arms. hurray!

a simple, special moment.
a moment i want to pause, savor and remember.
