Meeting the Grandbabies

I started snapping pics as soon as the initial hugs were done.  I am happy to say that Dale took to all of us right away.  He's the happiest little boy. 

Auntie Val was so overwhelmed with Mark.  She held onto him for a long time before finally letting grampa get a chance.  He was about 6 weeks old at the time of our visit.  He is the quietest, sweetest little baby I've ever seen.  Only cries when he's hungry or needs a change.

When Mark grabbed my finger and held on I started to cry.

"Hi Nonna!!!!"

 Daley likes to pick his nose.  I told Casi's mom, Tina, that this was one to show the future prom date.

Casi, Tina & Mark.

Mark fell asleep on her.  Apparently all the cuddles he got from all of us have spoiled him so much that he doesn't want to be in his swing anymore.  

So sweet.


  1. really cute. The smiles say it all.

    1. Russell & I miss them so so much.

  2. So much love and hugs and cuddles in this post! I think my heart is going to explode and I wouldn't have it any other way! This was beautiful to see. Thank you for sharing your special moments with us, JoJo. They're wonderful to see! :)


    1. Thanks Elsie! There are more posts to come. I couldn't stop shooting pics of the boys. Esp. Mark with all his faces. Russell is still ticked that I refused to allow myself to be photographed.

  3. Sweetie-pies! I love big brother's smile.
    I'm already looking forward to more heartwarming pictures, JoJo. Keep treasuring it all.
