Baby!!!

My nephew Christian Holden was born at 1:22 a.m., weighing 7 lbs, 2 oz. Chad and Jeannie are doing fine, and baby Christian is a very quiet baby. He just wants to look around and suck on his fingers and marvel at having lips. He has my crooked pinkies (and my mom’s and Asia’s). He looks a lot like his sister Bella and his cousin Nabi Grace. He has black hair and it looks like it’ll be curly. He’s learning to latch on right now, and doing pretty good at it, considering how alien everything in the world is to him. Every now and then he looks like he’s going to cry and then forgets what he was doing, and goes back to looking around. He’s had one diaper change, and Chad did a great job. We very gently got him into a tiny tiny onesie, and he’s swimming in it. He only weighs as much as air. My arm can’t even get tired. He’s very snuggly and slept for a long time with mommy and daddy in their bed. Gizelle curled up downstairs with me, but snuck off upstairs as soon as I fell asleep.
We just want to stare at him and watch him squish up his little chin.

    CONGRATS! I’m so happy for Jeannie and Chad. Thank you for the photos! I love the one of Chad and the baby with their foreheads pressed together.
