Do you believe in Love at First Sight? I do. I’ve always believed in love at first sight. Usually it has to do with the romantic kind of love, but I’m talking the love at first sight of grandchildren kind of love. That’s what I’m feeling today. That great, big, beautiful feeling of falling in love with our newest grandson Dylan – A BOY!! WHAT!!?? We totally thought it was going to be a girl!! We’re tickled BLUE!!
Love at first sight
If it is true that the pleasure of love is in loving… then my pleasure in life has just been multiplied beyond measure!
Yesterday morning, at 10:49 am, our newest little grandchild entered our world!
When did this Love at first sight ARRIVE?
Our hearts and arms and souls welcome beautiful and healthy Dylan Joseph. 8 lbs. 3 oz. Dylan is the baby brother to Maddie, 7, and Jake, 4.
And Dylan is the baby cousin to Taylor, 7. Andrew, 5. William, 3. Alexander, 2. Benjamin, 15 months. Henry, 6 weeks.
Yes, after two beautiful little girls, Dylan is our 7th grandson in a row! Is there a word to describe this delight? This amazement? This adventure? This journey? OK. Can you say “testosterone”?!
The Love at first sight continues
We are “grandma and grandpa, and savvy auntie and uncle” thrilled here at Mom Generations! And we are so excited and happy for our son and daughter-in-law, Adam and Aimee. Hugs, kisses and love, love, love for yesterday, today and always! There’s something s magical about welcoming a new baby. It’s the beginning of the beginning and it’s a great story to start. To see my son and his wife complete their family was just a beautiful moment and one I will never, ever forget!
Proud papa with his son and grandson! Look at those eyes just bright as can be with shining with great love! It’s just an incredible feeling to see this and feel it and be part of it.
Thank you for this most special blessing and miracle of life… baby Dylan!
And so… may all you grandparents out there experience the Love at first sight of your newest bundle of joy. May that magic bless you many, many, many times over. We’ve been blessed with many grandkids and the love and magic just grows with every new birth. We can’t wait to see what the world brings Dylan! Love love love love love!! Happy day all around for the Couto family!
