Baby Love: Levi










I got Levi to myself for a couple hours Friday...in good afternoon light, filtering through the bedroom window. I put him on the bed, with some pillows covered with soft blankets for a background and managed to get a couple shots with his eyes open, and then he squirmed himself to sleep in the soft-as-a-feather blanket he was lying upon...no clothing but his little diaper.



He's pretty darn precious if I do say so myself.
A little angel.



And those marshmallow-soft fat rolls...just delicious!



And the little feet...that aren't so little!


I wanted to remember every little detail...so out came the macro.



This has always happened to be the most favorite part of my babies, and so it is with my grandson, the back of the neck...where the wrinkle is and his hair ends.





Sweet little hands (that aren't so little!) that reflexively grip my finger when I take hold.




And I love to kiss the top of that sweet little head, covered in velvet hair...that smells like it came straight from heaven.

Levi, I sure do love you, precious baby.

He is beautiful and such a gift to you and the family.
He does seem to have thick hair, and so soft.
Glad you had a chance to take all the pictures you wanted!

I. Am. In. Love. There are no words. He is so very precious and I wish I could hold him and love him and sniff him and smooch him and hug him. I'm so glad you didn't cry ALL the way home, but I'm sure it's still hard, so here's a long-distance hug from me to you, Nana!
