Blessings on Thee, Little Man

Two little feet, so small that both may nestle
        In one caressing hand,--
Two tender feet upon the untried border
        Of life's mysterious land.

My lovely cousin, Marion, had her sweet Baby Malcolm 2 weeks ago today.  I went to see them last weekend and oh my, what a sugary little bundle he is.  First, look at this foot.  I'm a sucker for baby feet, the teeny tiny toes, and the sentiments in the poem snippet above.  Almost too much sweetness to bear!
Malcolm is Marion's second babe, and she's a natural mama.  I sat with her while she held and fed him and it was a truly sacred experience.  Is there anything more precious than this?

Welcome to the family, dear one!
