Sometimes living life in a big family does feel like a three-ring circus, but that's my life, and, all-in-all, I LOVE IT!

It Always Feels So Good To Welcome Them Home!

Baby Ray is home and his first stop along the way was Grandma's house!
And a few days later was his first appointment with the pediatrician, and his parents made sure to stop in here afterwards to give Grandma the good news that everything was perfect!
And Baby Ray was here over the weekend to keep his Grandpa company while we all watched his favorite team (the Giants) win the game to go on to the Super Bowl!
And there were lots of visitors here on all those days who were anxious to meet Baby Ray and to welcome this new little man home (but you can see that Grandma hogged the newborn most of the time!):

(All was quiet until Raymond's crying woke up Eóghan!  I have never heard Eóghan cry like that!  He sounded almost scared.  But he soon calmed down and became very interested in him.  I hope they grow up to be very good friends!)

Raymond Francisco, Mia Rose, Sophie Gianna, Jayden Marcellino, and Eóghan Harry
(Look ~ Sophie is ten months old and Eóghan is four months old and he's MUCH BIGGER than she is!)

This past weekend Ray said, "It's like having a Daycare Center in our house now when all the grandkids are here!"

  2. have four....and would love to have more, more, more!
    The last photo is incredibly beautiful.
    Yes, Sophie is a lovely petite bundle of sugar.
    She will enjoy being petite when she is much much older; my oldest granddaughter is 10 years old and is the smallest one in her class. She doesn't like that right now because classmates and peers are always saying things like 'shorty' and are always thinking that she is much younger than she is. I smile to myself and continue to encourage her to love the size she is...knowing that as she is older, she will be the one smiling even 'bigger' when she looks younger.
    Ray, Mia, Sophie, Jayden, and Eóghan are all precious. I'm so glad I've gotten to know your family through your blog. I send you much love, Eileen.

    1. I am going to have to quit typing. Apparently, I can't spell...sigh.
      The first sentence should say, "I have four...and would love to have more, more, more!"
      I misspelled Jayden's name in my first (deleted) comment and went back, copied, pasted, and corrected it and apparently didn't copy all of the first sentence. I don't have the heart to mess up your blog by removing the second one and correcting it, so I'm replying to my own comment. Hugs to you my sweet friend...

  3. OH wow what a post Eileen! That last picture of your grandchildren together is absolutely darling. Totally cute. And my goodness Sophie is looking like a TODDLER. Even though she is tinier than Eoghan! 3 grandbabies born in less than 10 months time! My youngest 3 grandbabies were all born last year, so our lives continue to be so parallel!
