Cousin KJ is a real artist--here's some up close and snuffly pictures of baby Maile at 3 days old. I especially love the close-ups, because that's how I see my baby-- with my nose right in her fragrant little neck. It's amazing to me how deeply I love this little person who I couldn't even visualize 2 weeks ago. And, phew, good thing it's so much easier the 2nd time around-- all that new baby care stuff, like that alarming umbilical stump (fell off on day 5, thank heavens!) is so much less stressful this time.
