{this moment} Nephew

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.


Like last week, some words are necessary.  This morning at 5:58am we welcomed our new nephew into the world.  I helped my sister and her husband through the day yesterday, and through the night until he was born this morning.  I missed the birth as there was some intervention necessary and only Papa was allowed in the OR, but was happy to be there for the rest of it and lend support where I could and of course, to be among the first to welcome him into the world. 

Jen helped by being doing some awesome solo-parenting of The Bean and is visiting this little peanut now.

He is a beautiful soul.  Very mellow.  I think he knows there are people here taking care of him and filling up their hearts with love for him. 

Inspired by SouleMama.  


  1. Thanks ladies. He is a dream baby. I love him to bits.

  2. That tiny little hand is so precious. Congrats on the new nephew!

  3. Congratulations!! Welcome to the world little soul. I can't really think of a better moment, and what a lucky little boy to be born into so much love.

    Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy every bit of him.

  4. Oh incredibly sweet! Welcome to the world, little one :-)
