“To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palms of your hand
And eternity in an hour.”- William Blake

Our baby just had his visit to his pediatrician last night and I was so thrilled to learn that he has almost doubled his birth weight in a span of 65 days.  He now weighs 13.42 lbs. and 59cm. in length (that’s almost two feet). Wow, our baby is definitely showing off, and those figures are higher than average weight and length for his age.

I remember the time he has to stay in the hospital for three weeks after birth and every positive development now is something we all treasure and marvel at. God is good and God is great.


I took this shot along with several ones the last time we visited Nate and when I saw it on my camera, I was simply thrilled. It set me thinking, these are Nate’s chubby fingers which one day would reach out and hold our hands too. Then that would be a beginning of another journey for us, speaking a language that  only an innocent child could do.  Though I am nearing  that age which others call “senior years” I still look forward to the time that Nate would enjoy a walk with me  and point out the beauty of the world through  his eyes.  When I turn sixty, I’ll be counting the days when he turns four, that would be a perfect age to show him around and probably teach him photography too. By then, we probably have covered a lot of fairy tale stories and accumulated a lot of children’s books in our hands to tide him over through his young life. Nissa has already started to read to him and he loves those times that he can listen to  her voice, all attentive and smiling.

Miss you baby 🙂
