Love at First Sight

I met him but a few days ago, and it was love at first sight.

He looked at me with his wide eyes and slightly upturned mouth — as if he was smiling at a secret joke just the two of us had shared. I looked at him as if I had known him forever.

We spent some time together, and it was all smiles — well, except when he got hungry; but don’t we all get a bit cranky when our bellies are empty and we don’t know how to ask for food?

He laughed at my funny faces (or perhaps he was just mocking the one I am stuck with), he giggled at all the funny noises I made, and he smiled whenever I walked into the room.

This is pure bliss.

We went to the park the other day and he tried to eat everything in sight. I guess we had better teach him how to ask for food sooner than expected: the leaves didn’t taste so good.

I will be spending as much time with him as I can — until he goes back home. My new nephew — but 9 months old — will be taking my heart back with him when he goes.

Love the little ones with all your heart. Time is fleeting and oh so very precious!

    How cute. He’s got that oh-so-suave look down already.
