Precious Little Nugget

 My trip to San Diego was amazing, and of course, seven days just wasn't enough.

Meeting my nephew was such a thrill. I mean, just look at him! I am so in love with that little nugget. My sister must have gotten tired of me saying "I just want to steal him!" I've seen babies a million times, but there is something really magical about them when you really think about them. When my family vacationed together last year, Baby Mac wasn’t even a blip on the radar. He was born exactly one year after we went to NASA’s Johnson Space Center. I love looking back at specific timelines and seeing how much is different yet the same.

He is still so young, so he slept most of the time, but as anyone who has ever loved a baby will tell you, it is fun to just sit at look at him. I was completely mesmerized. I would smile at my sister with every coo and cry, and she laughed when I compared his sporadic, flailing limbs to Disney animatronics.

I know he didn’t understand a word I said to him, but when I held him, I would whisper to him: You are so loved... You are amazing… We’ve been waiting for you... You’re going to love your mom and dad… I don’t live here, so you’ll see me mostly on Skype, but I love you so, so much… You smart, sweet boy. 


I am so in love with that precious little nugget!

Same! I absolutely love looking back at an exact date and comparing what's changed, and also thinking ahead to what things will be like in a years time!

What a cutie!! It's so funny, I do the same thing... I think about things in terms of whether I was pregnant or not! :)

Heather Mora said...

Aww, congrats Linds!! He is adorable and blessed to have an auntie that loves him so much, even from far away. We are far from my sisters too, but whenever we are together Elizabeth loves them and talks about them for days afterwards. We head to San Diego tomorrow for a visit! :)

Aww, sweetest little thing! The biggest downside to being an only child is not having nieces or nephews. Good thing I have my cat ;)
