WE, TOO, ONCE TOOK HOME A PRECIOUS BABY BOY

I'm sure family members over the next several weeks will want to compare and contrast the baby features of Joe (Austin's father) and of Krissy (Austin's mother) with their firstborn, Austin Burgess. My wife Cathy took a digital photograph of a standard print (from our family picture album) of our youngest son, Joe, at approximately the age of one month (or perhaps just a tad older). Everyone can take a look and see if they see much of Joe in his son Austin at this point. Cathy and I see more of our daughter-in-law's Krissy's features, but then we haven't seen a photo of her at one month. Regardless, Joe was a cutie and, as "Amma" Davis writes, "Austin is gorgeous." One thing we know for sure: Joe had dimples in his shoulders when he was born and so does his son Austin!
