Snippets of a short life

When Elijah was born, he smelled like vanilla and cedar - I am absolutely serious, and could easily find 2 or 3 NICU nurses to back me up.
He looked like a little doll, but Daddy thought he looked like a little bush baby, because his eyes were so very big and wide open.
His sucking would improve when I sang to him in spanish. I only know three songs in spanish - and by the end of his three weeks in the NICU, everyone else knew those songs just as well.

I'm missing him so much right now. I can almost smell him.

Elijah, 5 days old
bo·dhi·satt·va (bō'dĭ-sŭt'və) n. Buddhism.
An enlightened being who, out of compassion, forgoes nirvana in order to save others.
