Slice2012 11 of 31 Welcome Baby Vinny

There is nothing like holding a brand new baby.
Carefully holding up his head in the crook of my arm, I welcomed my newest nephew today.
6 pounds and 11 ounces of beauty.
Baby Vinny came into this world greeted by his mom and dad and big sister (2 yr old) Vivian.
We oooed and awed over his smell and his warmth and his calm nature.
We imagined his cousins fighting over whose turn it will be too hold him.
 And then, we thought about how, too soon, he will be running to keep up with his busy sister.
We know how time rushes by
 But for today,
I hope the world slows down enough for all of us to enjoy every bit of how it feels
to love a brand new baby.
