My grandson, Benjamin, 9 days old, holding his mommy's thumb...

He was born few days before the due date and, therefore, a little smaller than average. Amazing how everything is miniscule in him...
Thank God, he's all perfect, healthy and calm - a beautiful baby indeed - no bias! LOL! A blessing to the whole family - on both sides!

I didn't shoot specifically for the challenge, but thought I could use the image here when I saw the call - and I like the Minimal Editing.

Looking at these little ones, and thinking on the abortion issue that's corroding North America these days, sometimes I wonder if people could just imagine and put a baby's face on those little persons they want to get rid of...

Title is a quote is from Dr. Seuss.
