|Ezra Michael Smith, two weeks old|
We had a quick stop over in Oakland where it was also raining. In fact we had clouds nearly the whole trip.
|Wish these were all dropping rain!|
And 104 degrees to welcome us back :-(
Oh well, we only had one thing to do on this quick visit - meet Ezra!
|So tiny. So perfect.|
Damn, here come those tears again.....
It was a wonderful couple days just hanging out with the new family.
Jeff stayed with them the first night so he could hang out with his brother, and I headed to the motel for the luxury of a long shower with lots of hot water.
We went out for lunch but mostly just enjoyed all being together. It was about holding and playing with Ezra, but the bonus for me was spending time with Brian and Jeff together. Something that I haven't done in a few years.
Ezra is a little guy but his parents are so great with him, they seem to really have it all figured out. Seeing the joy in their eyes when they look at him, and the love and support they give each other, filled me with such happiness.
His uncle was completely smitten as well, assuring Ezra they'd do fun and cool stuff away from his parents as soon as he was a bit bigger. Oh lord.....
|Dinner with Dad|
|Dreaming about my first mustache|
|I might look really cool....|
|but what if I look lame????|
So as warned, I'm completely over the moon for this little man. It wasn't long enough, but I'm so glad Jeff and I got to make the trip. Bill gets to meet him in November when we'll be there for a whole month :-)
