7 weeks

On Saturday, Theo turned 7 weeks old. I caught one of his gorgeous smiles on camera that day. Here it is:

What a cute, cute baby pie! :)

I haven't been posting much lately because I've been hard at work on the Campaign to Save the North Shore Birth Center, which I've been spearheading. Theo came with me to the Campaign's organizational meeting on Sunday morning. He's a little activist in the making!

One of the many people who attended our meeting worked at the hospital. I mentioned that Theo has the dubious distinction of being the Birth Center's first "code pink" baby, and she told me a touching story: After Theo was born, she went to a service in the hospital chapel. At that service, the chaplain said a prayer of thanksgiving that the "code pink" baby was okay, and everyone had a group hug about it. I think that is incredibly sweet. :)

In other news, my mom has been saying that Theo looks bigger in photographs than he does in real life. When she comes to visit, she spends a few minutes marveling at how small he still is!

So, here is a photo orchestrated to show off Theo's teensy, then-six-week-old cuteness. Our friend Tom and I present: Theo with a contrabassoon!

Hm, it looks like he's getting ready to smile! Is he? Oh, yes, he is!

That's our baby--a sweet-natured sunshine boy.
