Sage: 1 - one (as a profound philosopher) distinguished for wisdom
2 - a mature or venerable man of sound judgment
Six pound Sage was so sweet to me. He let us play dress-ups, pose and experiment with a painting of his doggie and mama's maternity belly cast. (While I offer baby props, I also like to allow room for your sentimental items as well.) But the sweetest frame - even sweeter than this micro Rosslander in trademark toque or his thumb-sucking ways - is newborn Sage nestled in his parent's tender arms.
Their affection was not put on for the camera. Even while I handled Sage in between sets, his sweet parents cuddled and coo'd and collectively marveled at their baby boy. They seem so well suited to handle this thing called family.
