Here comes the oohs and the Ahhs

Okay, okay here are some pictures of my nephew!

I heard Jalani cry for the first time last night. He has lungs, but he isn't loud as Jevon was. Jevon had colic, when he was a baby. He kept crying and crying. I don't think I got much sleep, when he came home. Jalani, well he has been quiet for the most part. Well as far as I know, because my sister (for the most part) has been hold up in Jevons room (long story, he is sleeping on the couch) ever since mother and son came home together.

I took the picture above last night with my new camera phone (my old one can't hold a charge anymore). I was worried about my flash on the camera phone so I didn't take anymore than one. Its funny, last night when I heard him crying, I went to go see what was wrong. Still don't know, but my mom had him in her hands and he was still crying (she has the touch, but it didn't work on him). I don't know why or if I am the cause, but when I came in the room, he stop crying. Jalani actually stopped crying. I was shocked, and no one else noticed this but me. I started waving at him, and making faces, and goofing off. Then I noticed that he was looking at me, but not looking at me. I don't know if he can actually see us or not yet, but at least he heard me.

I took this next one with my digital camera. I couldn't resist. I had to turn the flash off, so I wouldn't wake him. I was sitting there snapping away with the camera. Half of the pictures I had to dump, because you really coulnd't see his face. I don't know if you can even see his face in this picture. I learned something new that day. Babies like to be wrapped up like Jalani is in this picture, because it kind of reminds them of the womb. Neat huh!

How precious! You're right, newborns love to be wrapped up. I remember when I'd wrap up my boys... I'd call it a Baby Burrito.

Take as many pictures as you can. They change and grow so fast.

Ok, I'll do it.....Ohhhs and Ahhs, I just LOVE babies. I like to hug them, and smell them, and hold them, and love them!

You must have the special baby touch. Some people have it, some people don't, it will always be a special bond between the two of you. Enjoy it!

Ahhhh...! I am jealous...! You have one of the cutest babies I've ever seen as your nevvie... And it does seem like you have "the touch"... Another thing I am envious of, because I do not... Babies hate me and cry whenever they see me... If I hold them, they scream until Mummy rescues them... Children just *love* me, but babies - nuh uh, no way, not happenin'... Cherish the bond you have with your nephew, it's so very special...

Isn't it funny how a little bundle less than ten pounds can turn the biggest of men into a baby talking fool? Ha ha

Congratulations to you and your family on the new nephew!
