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!

A Visit With Baby Ray

Jayden was off from school yesterday in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  And both Katie and Ray were off from work too, so as long as Kate was home to take care of her boys, Ray and I went to the hospital in the morning to visit with Brian, Flora, and Baby Ray.
Flora is still in a lot of pain, and understandably she didn't want to sit and pose, so we'll wait for some 'family portraits' until she's feeling better.

But we did get to enjoy a visit with all of them and we did get a few pictures of Baby Ray:

(I always forget how tiny newborns are!  He's such a cute little peanut!)

(He looks like he might just have Jayden's eyelashes!  Lucky boy!)

And later in the afternoon Ray drove Ellie and my Aunt Florence down to the hospital so they could share in some baby joy!

And here at home ~ we have the baby that looks like he just ate the baby!

Eóghan fell asleep as I was feeding him dinner.  He's always happiest and most content on a full belly.  I guess he takes after his Grandma!


  1. "Baby joy"....sigh.... I love that kind of joy.
    He is so precious, Eileen.
    I'm also happy to see a photo of Eóghan as he is peacefully sleeping. What treasures these children are!
    Love you, my friend....

  2. Oh that's the best, the very best part of life. Nothing like a newborn straight from heaven, and then a loving family coming to see him.

    That's too funny about Eoghan! He really is such a cute little Chub. :)

  3. Loved the photos of Baby Ray yawning and Eóghan sleeping. Your family is growing fast, Eileen. Remember, grandkids grow even faster! : )

  4. Oh so beautiful, enjoy this time, it goes by so fast. These are the most beautiful babies and I love their names, Ray must love having a namesake.....;-)big hugs
