a little overcooked, but totally perfect....

I just returned from the hospital, where I got to meet my best friend's gorgeous new son. He was born yesterday, but was due 10 days earlier. The old saying is true - good things are worth waiting for! Less than 24 hours old, he was alert and awake for my visit. I just love his tiny toes and swirly little cowlick.

Watch for studio shots of this little guy sometime over the next 2 weeks.
