On April 2, the day of his birth, we opened a bottle of champagne that Papou Nick had brought for the occasion. After all, this was his grandson and namesake!
Somebody else took this photo of me holding our new grandchild.
And here is the proud Papi, Emilio, revisiting the "football hold" that he used so successfully when Amalia was a newborn. It works wonders with cranky babies.
(Did I mention that on Wednesday, April 1, while picking up Amalia from the Greek Cathedral preschool, Eleni decided to slip into the church to light a candle and found herself locked in and contemplating the possibility of going into labor right there. Luckily, someone went hunting for her and got her out, and Baby Nicolas was not saddled with an April Fools Day birthday!)
