Most of you know by now that we have a new grandson born August 15th to Amalia, David’s eldest daughter, and her husband Fede. Because I was traveling we had to wait until this Wednesday before we could slip over to Victoria and be introduced. Weighing in at 8 pounds 10 ounces at birth, Isaac Graziano has never looked back and is now over 9 pounds of warm, soft, relaxed and cuddly baby boy.
David offered up “the holding” to me. Lucky me! I sure didn’t hesitate more than a second. Yes!
and Fede grabbed my camera to capture the moment for us.
You may or may not remember that Fede is Federico Vanoli and a professional photographer and took the photographs at my daughter’s wedding last summer. He now has a website with some of his fine art photography.
Of course, I wasn’t shy about taking a few precious photographs of my own for my brag-post here on Creative Potager as well!
Fede is just a natural baby whisperer…
Look at that contentment!
Amalia was taking a needed baby-holding-break while we were there so we have to wait until another visit to capture the two of them together.
There you go – a nice new-born baby fix to start the weekend!
Speaking of the weekend, my thoughts are with those you on the east coast of the U.S.A. as you evacuate and brace for Hurricane Irene. I know some of you are in its direct path. May you be safe.
Sprout question: When was the last time you held the floppy wonder of a newborn?
