Baby smell and quiet time

It's not just the colors that seem brighter but also the smells. I had thought that "baby smell" was mostly a product of powders, potions and laundry detergents, but not so. Baby's head smells wonderful. He's spent many hours asleep on dad's chest by now. (We're afraid to leave him lying down in his hospital bassinet due to risk of choking due to a spit-up problem he had after birth.) That smell's a nice perk when you're spending hours at a time with a heavy baby dangling over your arms!

Meanwhile, turning the camera around, Lisa catches her first bits of real rest:
