Seth and the Justices...

Now that my husband is no longer working for the Supreme Court, it's ok for me to put up my prized photo collection! Here is Seth with the four conservative justices. I LOVE this picture. Seth was only about 7 weeks old, and he looks like he's just curled up against Justice Thomas' chest, completely content. Justice Thomas is really good with children.

This picture was taken the same day. Justice Scalia is a great sport. I got a compliment on how well behaved Seth was, (since he'd just sat through a group talk without making a peep), and then Justice Scalia agreed to have a picture taken. He didn't want to hold such a tiny tyke, but I still got my picture!

We made an appointment with the Chief to get this shot. He was the only one that I didn't have any natural opportunities to photograph with my cute offspring. He was really nice about it, and he's a natural with babies. After all, he has two little ones of his own. We really appreciated him taking a couple of minutes out of his busy day for us. He also expressed concern about David's voice. Very thoughtful man...

And here we have Justice Alito and Seth... This was taken at the Alito clerk's last clerk happy hour. It was a luau, so that is why Justice Alito is wearing a lei. Justice Alito is a really nice guy. He's a genuine, professorial type, and I really enjoy that kind of person, probably because my husband is that type himself. Yes, Seth's mama is completely shameless. One of David's co-clerks called me "the paparazzi." But hey, what other baby in town will have these pics in a 4-photo frame in his baby room? It was worth it...
