When Sherry Met Ben

Since this is Ben's senior year in high school, I have been going back through old baby photos and videos trying to find the best ones of him. We are finding so many things that we had forgotten about over the years. This particular video really tickled me when I saw it.

This is when my sister Sherry arrived to see Ben for the first time. He was twelve days old. Our parents were with us at the airport to pick her up. What tickles me so much is that she and I both center all our attention on Ben. We don't look at each other, we don't hug, we just have intense focus on the newest member of our family. Such is the power of a baby.

When I showed this video to Ben, I told him, "Look how we were so completely focused on you!"

"Yeah, what's up with that?" he responded. "Why did you stop?"


  1. I have watched this over and over to see Eddie in the background and the movements that were -oh - so familiar to me,

  2. And only because I had pretty much the same bangs :)

  3. Hush, you! My bangs were gorgeous!!
