That New Baby Smell

Meg, D. and Julian

One of our summer highlights was meeting my new nephew, Julian. We held him, kissed him, smelled him.  He smells like God.

I can't even say how hard it was to say good-bye.

Just look at how he holds onto one's shirt while he's sleeping.

That new baby smell, it's like a happy, everything-is-going-to-be-okay drug, and we are still reliving this bliss.
