Annie and Mike got married awhile back and I had a grand time with them. Today I was treated to a visit with their newborn son Joey. If you know me then you know that I think there is no better smell in the world than the top of a little newborn’s head. It is so amazingly innocent and I jump at the chance to experience it whenever possible. Joey was born on March 29th weighing in at 7 lbs 5 oz. He’s perfectly beautiful and healthy, too. (And yes, people…I do believe there are sometimes ugly babies. I had one. Holly was not cute until she was 3 months old. I’m not being a mean mom, just honest.) I am proud of myself that I didn’t cry in their hospital room…I kept it together while getting to hold his tiny little body. I cried after I left the room. Annie and Mike will be on their way home soon, and I hope to have this blog post up and waiting for them.
Mike told me that Joey had a little habit of “fake” sleeping. He’d look like he was asleep, but then slowly open one eye seemingly to check and see if you were still there. Sure enough, Joey did it a lot.
Joey had good working knowledge of what a pacifier is used for. He was quite happy with it.
