The Boys

Not many boys in our family. Flannery and I each have 3 girls but Molly had the first boy and he's the cutest thing ever. Seriously. He came to visit this weekend and I couldn't stop cuddling him, staring at him and being with him. I love every minute with the little guy and I miss him like crazy.

Here's a cute pic of the little guy, Coleman... with our Dad, also Coleman. Hi Dad!


He loves his Pops!



And here's a picture of me with my Pops 9 years ago. That's my Dad on the left, me with baby Colleen and our grandfather, Edward Joseph Shaughnessy. He passed away last Friday at the age of 95 and my heart hurts. He was truly one of the greatest and we were so blessed to have him as our Pops. He always remembered birthdays and sent a card, took us for walks, cheered us on at games and told the greatest stories. Pops was true Irishman who raised 8 kids with his wife Mary Agnes Flannery. He will be sorely missed. Love you Pops!

I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your beloved Pops. Losing a grandparent is heartbreaking. He sounds like one of the best.

Many hugs and prayers to you and your family.
