Two years ago today, my little granddaughter, Maddalena “Maddie” Grace, made her big entrance into the world at the Ospedale Gemelli down in Rome.
Since her arrival, and like a true Leo, she hasn’t looked back once.
Despite now being an official member of the “terrible twos,” she’s a real pleasure to be around.
Tanti auguri a te!
It’s a real joy for me to watch you growing up, Maddie.

Great set of images – you must be a very proud grandparent 🙂
I am! Thanks very much.
That last picture is wonderful, Tom, and what a cutie! Must take after you. 🙂
Janet — I can’t take credit, that all goes to Maddie’s mom and dad. 🙂
She is a cutie – and the world can never have too many Leos. 🙂
Pat — You’re right on both counts!
She is adorable. You must be an extremely proud grandpa.
That I am, Tux, that I am.
A very beautiful little girl – good for you!! Lucky her to have such a terrific grandpapa!
And lucky me to have her. We Leos know how to stick together. Look out! 🙂
Looking at that glorious ‘pink photo’ in tandem with the others I can almost see the “terrible twos” in action: that young lady well knows her “power”! 🙂 But, as the Grandpa, you can kind of “hand her back” at required moments.
Eha — Thanks for the note. I’m in no rush to “hand her back” as she’s a joy to hold.
Did not think you were 🙂 !!
it’s a real joy for her to have TPT as granpa! see you soon in rome.
Fra poco! Nonno Pom
She sure is photogenic! And what a beauty…lots of material for nonno’s lens. I have to say that I think “twos” are one of my favorite ages – and Leo’s are always a great in my book!
Thanks again, MG!
totally great- your post put a smile on my face 🙂
Tholos — I think that was Maddie’s doing. 🙂
Happy birthday to your Maddie. What a lovely child. 🙂
Thanks so much, Sylvia. She’s something.
She looks like a delight to be around! Can I come over and babysit? 😉
You’ll have to ask her mom and dad; I’m just the granddad. 🙂
Well, I think I’ll have to babysit via Skype….LOL! 😉
