My Beloved Sophia

I have put up yet another roll of photos from Sophia’s birth – this is from my visit yesterday, whereas Roll 1 and Roll 2 were from my visit on Saturday, just a few short hours after her birth. Roll 3 includes her first Mets cap, a very exciting event indeed. As always, the entire bunch are available in the main gallery and we encourage purchasing of the photos and the “gift items”. I’ve order about a gazillion mugs to pass out.

I confess to being a bit overwhelmed by the feelings involved – something deep and tribal (or maybe primal?) has been tapped, and the intensity of my love and devotion to this little baby is beyond anything I’ve known. Beware, world: Sophia’s Uncle is Fierce with Love for her.

I was also amazed at the difference between the baby on the first day and the second day. On day one, a few short hours after her birth, she was mostly asleep and occasionally awake but in a fairly low-key manner – not a lot of crying. By Sunday, she was loud and alive – paying attention to all the noises and movements. Amazing. The notion that I can’t spend every single day with her is painful.

    Uncle Nicco has a nice ring to it. You’ll be a great Dad. That feeling? A taste of adulthood. It only gets better. Proud to be your pal.
