Precious! As a matter of fact I got to hold a 4 month old Sunday at church. Our friends had a Christmas Eve baby and I finally got to see her. She was so cute and smelled that sweet baby smell. I could have cuddled her all day!

Is it fair that your family gets all these cute babies? I need one to squeeze, too! Beautiful boy!

Michelle said...

Lucky you! Precious babies, precious pictures.

My cousin was just down visiting with her 7 month old and 2 year old. So I sort of got to snuggle a young one. Of course he weighs 20 pounds so is a biggy.

cinner said...

How lucky to have two new babies in your family. I just got to hold two little ones, my cousins baby and an almost two year old. They can change your day in a matter of minutes. I love the photos of family holding hands. Have a wonderful week. I always love to visit here.

Frau said...

Congrats! What a beautiful baby boy! I haven't held a baby in a long time, probably a good thing I might run away with it. I love the smell of babies.

Mad Woman said...

Congrattulations to your brother and his wife. This little boy is beautiful.
I think you should share since you have TWO babies this year.

I held a new (6mo old) baby last weekend. He loved me. Surprised? Nah...

TechnoBabe said...

I haven't held a new baby in almost a year! The photos in your header are beautiful. I get choked up when the word family is brought up and I so like your blog.

Brooke said...

aww!! they are both gorgeous :)

the only "baby" i've head in a while is my 22 month old newphew who likes to be cradled and talk to like a baby when he first gets out of the bath :P

paige said...

I'll be holding very new baby Ava next weekend. I'm so looking forward to it! I've seen photos of her and she's just beautiful. :)

Baloney said...

So perfect. Congrats to all!

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

I personally LOVE that name! It is one of the greatest names ever! He is precious Rebekah! So sweet! Do you take most of the pictures you post. Like for instant the one of the couple holding the hands of the litte boy? The reason I ask is you know soooooo many people! You must have so many friends and you take so many different photos it is just amazing to me how well you keep up with that!!!

Ocean Girl said...

Aww those baby faces:) Make me want a new one of my own (more smiles:)) Scared I might get double chin:)

My sister is having a new baby for the first time soon...
