Oh, the places you'll go

Huzzah! He's ready to explore!

This week marked a new beginning for us.
 Our little man squirmed, wriggled, fussed posed for his first passport photo!
It was quite comical, Nick and I met up for a lunch date to Kinko's and our local post office to get Sal's passport underway. The poor girl had to take about ten pictures of Sal before we got one that fit all the requirements. You know, like, head forward ( have you ever tried getting a 6 week old to look straight ahead? They have ZERO in the head control department, although if you want him to lift his head, he's your man...but turning and holding it straight, not so much), eyes OPEN, hands out of your face, drool to a minimum.

We finally got one though, and I think he is going to make the most handsome little traveller I know.

Sheesh, it took me 22 years to get my passport stamped, and he will have his stamped within 3 months of being alive.

I hope it is the first of many for him-

As Dr. Seuss wrote,

"Oh, the places you'll go."

Ain't that the truth?


  1. Beautiful boy! With you and Dad by his side I am sure he will go many places! You are even getting his Aunt to get out of her comfort zone and travel abroad! Such accomplishments for a 7 week old!

  2. They had to do so many retakes with Selim that she ran out of batteries and we had to return the next day :)
