My new nephew is 18 days old today. And yes, he’s adorable.

And he’s reminding me of all the cute baby things I forgot about:

1. Feet. They’re just so small!

2. The hiccups.

3.  Fingernails. I don’t know why this always gets me—is it that they’re so tiny? So like a grown-up person, only miniature? So completely formed, even at birth, that they remind me of Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you…”? I don’t know, but they’re cute.

4. The spastic way he bounces his head against my collarbone as he’s snuggling in for a nap.

(4 1/2: Naps. How can someone sleeping be so sweet?)

5. Pale blue. Really, all the pastel colors. Officially, I still think a man (even a baby man) can wear pink, but he looks pretty darn cute in his little blue Pooh suit.
