Newborn sessions always give me giddy little giggles and a heart-warming sensation that just fills me to the brim with happiness. But this one was different. This baby is my nephew, just 2 weeks old: Eric Paul O'Connell.

And he is just perfect.

10lbs, 22'' of perfect. (Yep, you read that right.)

And seeing my hubby snuggle that little cutie...

Uh Oh. That's all I have to say about that.

Congratulations to my super-woman sister-in-law Charis and the rest of the family, now a clan a 6, on welcoming baby Eric. There are surely countless wonderful moments he will bring with him as he grows and I can't wait to see the kind of man he will become under their loving guidance.
