Congrats! He's DARLING! He will probably look like a totally different baby by the time I see him in September!

Oh, sorry to hear hoe difficult labor was. He is so sweet. I love his cooing sounds. I wish I was there to hold him right now.

I share this little collection of poems and our joy with you!

Air and Angels by John Donne

Twice or thrice had I loved thee,
Before I knew thy face or name;
So in a voice, so in a shapeless flame,
Angels affect us oft, and worshipped be;
Still when, to where thou wert, I came,
Some lovely glorious nothing I did see,
But since my soul, whose child love is,
Takes limbs of flesh, and else could nothing do,
More subtle than the parent is
Love must not be, but take a body too,
And therefore what thou wert, and who I bid love ask, and now
That it assume thy body, I allow,
And fix itself in thy lip, eye, and brow.

Infant Joy by William Blake

"I have no name:
I am but two days old."
What shall I call thee?
"I happy am,
Joy is my name."
Sweet joy befall thee!
Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while;
Sweet joy befall thee!

His own parents,
He that had father’d him, and she that had conceiv’d him in her womb, and birth’d him,
They gave this child more of themselves than that;
hey gave him afterward every day--they became part of him. ~Walt Whitman

How good--to be alive!
How infinite--to be
Alive--two-fold--The Birth I had
And this--besides, in--Thee!
~Emily Dickenson

With glad tidings of Love and peace!
