Today I went to Lincoln to see my mother's friend's daughter's new baby. Since I've known this family all my life, I felt like an aunt, especially when I got to hold him! I imagined him as beautiful but in reality he was even more beautiful. That was also the case when my brother William was born (I was almost nine, and he's now six). The new baby's eyes are enormous and a very deep blue in a very tiny face. I love him.
