Watching new families blossom and grow is just one of those things that I only now have an appreciation for. And meeting up with Allie’s parents who happen to be my family was a truly happy moment. And, normally, watching all of the heightened emotions from pure joy to utter exhaustion and confusion is one of the things that, as a parent, I can truly identify with. But Allie’s parents seem to just have it all locked down. They were (okay, they seemed) so well rested, and so happy to be spending a rainy day in with their new little creation – their beautiful baby girl. So we rolled around on the floor, pushed the cat off the bed (sorry, Milo!) and rocked and “shhhh’d” Allie to sleep until she cuddled up into a warm little ball of beauty, and dozed off in her mommy and daddy’s arms while we took some pictures of her being, well, adorable.
