Noah's Left The Ark

I've been waiting to post this since I got the email that Noah had abandoned the Ark and had moved to join us all.

Please go wish Jay and his family the best in their newest edition. What a beautiful baby. If you do nothing else, take a look at the video. The first few seconds... as his little boy, is so excited to hold the baby. His little feet tapping, the anticipation of loving on what he has waited for 40 weeks. Forty weeks is a long time for a little dude...

Congrats to Jay the Friendly Neighborhood Piper and to his wonderful family!

And a special congratulations as well to my blogless reader GEO6 who just became a grandfather for the first time! I saw pictures of that baby too, and he is very very yummy!

I so love the babies... they are so smoochy.

And should all the babies of this world come into it as loved as these two are, the world would be a far different place. Of that I am certain...

Update: I had to watch that video again. Anyone who does not laugh inside at that little guy's excitement at holding his brother... needs to be checked. It just fills your heart with happiness watching his little hands and his face and wanting to be part of this new baby's life. Good Lord. Its so sweet...

I'm just so happy for y'all, Jay. And your little boy... that just melts my heart. Its going to be one of those things I file away in my memory to take out and remember when things feel bad. The sheer happiness and excitement... it was like it was firing out of his fingertips!!!

Thanks for the heads up! I already paid a visit and sent my regards. I also broadcast the good news at my place as well. And you weren't kidding about the video! That really brought a smile to my face.

I loved that open-mouthed kiss. It reminds me so much of our toddler James excitedly holding our newborn Ben -- but alas that was long before the days of affordable video cameras, so there's no video record of James's first smooch on the same little brother that he'd later repeatedly tell me needed a "fanking".

That was the most precious thing I have ever seen. And that kiss, I am tearing up.

It's moments like those that makes me want kids.

Then I go to McDonalds and then thank the good lord I don't have any.

Congrats Jay!
