this moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

(inspired by soulemama)

So those are the rules, but rules are meant to be broken, right? This picture begs for a story to be told along with it.

This little guy is my brand new nephew Gus. He was born on January 4, weighing in at a hefty 10 lbs 4 oz, stretching out at 20.5 inches. Gus is the son of my sister-in-law Mandy and her husband Paul. Mandy and Paul waited a long time to bring home a baby, and what can I say? I'm a sucker for a happy ending - and an even bigger sucker for chubby, adorable little boys. (Those cheeks!) Congratulations, Mandy and Paul!
