Bundle of Boy

It is hard to believe that I have been a post-utero father for over a week. During this time Douglass 'Ali has been up to all kinds of things including finding his voice (AKA CRYING), learning to shake his head "no", hold a pacifier in his mouth with his hands and excrete in varying colors and shades. What a week. Oh yes and now and again he cracks a smile too. He is a charmer. Right now he is enjoying whatever infants dream about and rockin' his "Born to Read" hat (his mom is a librarian). Enjoy some photos.

"O dear one of 'Abdu'l-Bahá! Be the son of thy father and be the fruit of that tree. Be a son that hath been born of his soul and heart and not only of water and clay. A real son is such a one as hath branched from the spiritual part of man. I ask God that thou mayest be at all times confirmed and strengthened." (Abdu'l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu'l-Baha, p. 140)
