We had a such a busy week. From political ranting to last-minute traveling and brand-new baby oogling, I barely had time to catch my breath!  I promised you pictures of my new baby nephew, and here they are.  We got back from our two-day visit on Wednesday night and I am still smiling like a goofball.  Because Ameer is all that and can of beans, and his Mama and Daddy are doing such a fabulous job already!  I'd like to think it's because they took detailed notes when my kids were itty bitty babies (I'm such a modest older sister), but somehow I think they just knew what they were doing right from the start.  Nadia is gentle, loving and so patient - and Mansoor is just the most tenderhearted Daddy ever.  It's such a gift to watch a brand new love blossoming right before your very eyes, and I cherished every moment of our very brief time with this brand new family.  I can't wait to go back.

I'll stop now and get on with the show - presenting Ameer:

This is what he looked like, fast asleep, the very first moment I laid eyes on him...

I just love tiny baby hands - curled up just so:

And we can't forget those wee feet.  I'm also obsessed with those (okay, fine.  I'm just obsessed with the whole package deal):

It was hard to get a good shot of my brother with his little man, because he spent most of the time doing this:

(This shot was taken right before he went to work - hence the business attire.  And he wasn't worried about getting puked on, either.  Such a great Dad!)

And here is new mama Nadia.  Have you ever seen anything more lovely than this pair?

I didn't even have to do anything major to this picture.  They just look this...glowy. 

Baby Boy already has a big personality.  Check out the pursed lips:

Already posing for the cameras...or trying to make a poopie. 

And that, my friends, concludes your daily dose of unbearable cuteness - courtesy of the Brand New Mustafa Family.  Have a great weekend...I'll see you on the flip side.

Mansoor, Nadia and Baby Ameer.  They may be living in America, but we're not going to let them forget their Canadian roots (blankie courtesy of Grandma Mustafa, aka Ammi).
