Griffyn Meets Baby Brother, Tarryn!

My mother dropped by today after church and spent some time visiting. She's been out of town staying at my sister's house to give her a hand with Griffyn while his Mom is in the hospital with our family's latest arrival, Tarryn.

Mom had her digital camera with her and wanted to know if I wanted to see photos of Tarryn. Her digital is a Kodak, just like mine and so I asked her if I could try and download the photos. It worked. So I'd like to introduce you to....Tarryn...

Above is the happy Mom & Dad. My regular readers already know Griffyn. This is a beautiful family photo taken at the hospital.
Dad holding his two sons. Griffyn meets Tarryn and he is wondering what in the world is going on.
Here, Mom is showing Griffyn how tiny Tarryn's hands are. Griffyn did hold hands with Tarryn, my mother said. He was quite gentle with him.
What's all the fuss. Is this little guy going to change my entire life? Yes, Griffyn, things will never be the same. You are now a big brother.
Proud Mom holding the baby. She is so glad that Tarryn has been born. The last couple of weeks were a real trial for her. She was having false labor and a lot of indigestion.

I hope you enjoyed seeing photos of Griffyn and Tarryn. Our family has been truly blessed with this latest addition. Have a wonderful week. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. A real cutie and a real blessing too. There are few things in life more satisfying than holding a new born baby. I hope you get lots of time to hold the little one.

    Since you have been remodeling if you have time swing by my blog to see the results of the apartment I have just finished.

    I hope you have a great week. I’ll be very busy working 12 hour days all this month with double booked work.

  2. I am already excited for you for Christmas. You've probably started planning something already. Congratulations once again! Truly blessed indeed!

  3. Good morning, Mary,

    Congratulations, great auntie! What beautiful photos of the newest blessing to your family, Tarryn! Griffyn will love being a big brother. Well, most of the time. lol. Your Mom took beautiful pictures. Congratulations to the proud parents, and grandparents. I bet great-grandma is tickled pink as well!

    I'm also glad your Aunt May is doing well, Mary.

    Thank you for sharing the good news. Have a blessed week.



  4. Oh Mary....this is just such a precious, wonderful photo share! I love 'em all. The one with Griffyn on the bed with mommy and Tarryn is just too good for words!!! Don't you just wonder what goes through a child's mind when a newborn invades their world? I certainly do!

    I love this...brought tears of joy to my eyes. It's all so super. Life is good.

  5. Thank you for sharing Mary, really nice pictures. Griffyn seems to be handeling it well for the moment. I know he will be glad to have Mom home. Now the fun will begin, glad Mom has some back up help. Best to you, Barbara

  9. Thanks for sharing the photos. Griffyn does look like he is thinking things over seriously. Mommy is going to have her hands full for a while with two such small babies but they will grow close to each other and form a bond that will last a lifetime.
    I know you're anxious to visit and hold that new grand nephew yourself.
    Blessings, and thanks for the kind words at my place. I haven't been blogging as much lately.

  16. Hi Mary,
    Lovely pictures of your little Grand-Nephew Tarryn. What a sweetie!
    I just dropped in for the first time to say hi, because I've just received the circle journal, and I'm reading your entry! I just had to say hello, and to comment that you have a beautiful descriptive writing style! Writing is something I love to do too, but don't get to do much at present as I'm a married, working Mum. But that's OK, I'm still getting time to make some lovely friends!
    I'll now go back on my merry way reading through the journal. It's lovely to meet you... I may yet pop back with another comment!
