My wife, Sara, holds and comforts the newest grandchild at 10-days old. You can tell, in grandmas arms, she is in perfect peace.

A young father relaxes with his infant daughter. This is our son, Aaron, with week-old daughter, Eva.
I debated over whether to post the color version of this shot or stick with the sepia you see. I think the seriousness of Aaron’s face (he was watching TV) made the monochrome image more effective.
Join us in welcoming another grandchild to the family. This is Eva Grace at one week old. She is the daughter of Aaron and Hannah.

It’s been awhile since I posted a portrait photo. This image of our grandson captures a great expression. Sammy loves his bath time. With a firm grip, his mama is soaping him up.

I love the look of serious concentration on his face. He was crawling along the carpet and paused for moment of personal discovery. It was 15-seconds of intense study and then off to the next curiosity.

Is there anything more innocent than a young child. This is our grandson. He was sitting in the hallway, looking up at someone in the doorway. Don’t you love that cowlick?

Let me introduce you to Mean Gene. That’s the name on the back of his jersey. His given name is Gene Greening. I saw Gene on recent visit to Lambeau Field – home of the Green Bay Packers of NFL fame.
I had a few minutes and decided to stop in and take photos of anything that might catch my eye. Turns out, Mean Gene was the most interesting thing I encountered. With his “#1 Fan” foam finger and other stylish accessories attached to his Cheese Head, he was a standout. I asked if I could take his photo and he was kind enough to accommodate me…cheering, “Go, Pack, Go!” while waving his Packers towel. I’ll bet Gene could tell you stories and glories of many Packer seasons. Unfortunately, neither of us had time to chat – just snapped a few quick photos and went our separate ways.
I did learn, beside being the ultimate Packers fan, Mean Gene was at Lambeau that day as a volunteer. He was helping with some event for disabled veterans. It’s obvious, Gene is living up to his reputation as a true Packers Fan but I don’t think he’s succeeding in pulling off the “Mean” persona. (But, then again, I’ve never seen him on game day.)

Not all babies enjoy bathtime, but this one certainly does. He’s happy enough to show off those impressive new teeth.

We had the pleasure of spending a few days with our grandson (and his parents). That’s grandma Sara’s hand expertly wielding the spoon.
As you can see, he was an eager eater. This kid can pack away the oatmeal. Just look at the size of that bowl. He ate it all!

I wonder what thoughts were rolling through the birthday boy’s mind before he makes his wish and blows out the candles. (Maybe wondering why there are only half as many candles as their shoudl be…or their odd placement.)
Turned out all the lights to capture this by pure candlelight.
