This Thanksgiving, four new grandparents celebrate the
birth of our fist grandchild. At six pounds, he seems very
tiny to us all. He is very warm and likes to be held close.
His eyes are big and full of curiosity. A fine baby; healthy
and full of promise.
Mother, father, and child are all happy and doing well.
Several weeks before birth...
...and just after.
Secure and happy in our arms.
Grandmother Margharita ... joyous.
Grandfather Peter ... proud
Grandmother Alice ... feeling clumsy?
Grandfather Mike ... happy.
Exploring the world with eyes, arms, and fingers.
He looks this way, then that, always intent on something.
Fingers wrap around a finger. Toes like to be gently rubbed.
