Love at first sight

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!

Love at first sight

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.

Love at first sight

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!

REVISED: We get to have lots of  grandbabies now! See other grand baby birth stories here.

  1. Congratulations to you all! He is a handsome little man. You sure have some handsome guys in your life. I think your husband looks a little like Dustin Hoffman. And Momma Aimee lookin’ good (but tired) for just having had a baby. Blessings on your family!

  2. Best of luck to you on running your 5K! I did that last April and it was one of the best things I have ever done! The Twitter Tweightloss Challenge sounds great! Check out the Couch to 5K website too ( It sets realistic goals on a weekly basis. It was challenging but very do-able!! i would still be running but I am expecting my 4th child in December and the doctors won’t let me run. I love reading your daughter’s blog about her 4 boys! I am hoping to run a 5K again next April after the baby comes. It all depends on the delivery, how baby is doing, how my big three are doing, etc. The Spirit is willing! I am going to check out the Twitter program too. Thank you for the heads up about that! 🙂

  3. Congratulations!!!!!!!

    Children are the best gift God could give us. The more we have the wealthier we become

    Good luck.
