The 57-year-old grandma looked at her 5-month-old grandchild in adoration, who was adorably snoozing on her chest.
“Snuggle time with beautiful Grace Warrior at the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve,” Terri captioned the sweet snap. “All the love.”
“When we first got her home, it’s as if she’s always been with us,” she said. “It’s a really strange feeling when you can’t remember what your life was like before this beautiful little person. I never knew love like this before.”
“It was surreal bringing her home and knowing that that’s our baby,” Powell told PEOPLE. “It’s amazing how you can go without sleep and still think this little thing is the most magical thing in the world.”
In a post to Instagram celebrating Grace’s birth, Terri said her late husband Steve Irwin, who was known as The Crocodile Hunter, “would be beyond proud” of his daughter.
“Love is not a big enough word. My heart is so incredibly happy,” she wrote, adding that, “Grace is the next generation to continue his mission and message of conservation.”
“She chose her parents wisely,” Terri continued. “Bindi and Chandler are already the best parents ever!”
“This sweetheart has been watching her ‘Grandpa Crocodile’ on the projector at our camp here on the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. She lights up when she sees him on screen. I wish with all my heart that Dad could hug my beautiful girl. It’s been 15 years since he passed away. I hold on to the thought that he’s her guardian angel now, watching over the most special part of my life, Grace Warrior,” Irwin captioned a sweet post.
While in another, she gave a quick update on everything Grace loves!
“Our Grace Warrior is 5 months old. ❤️ She loves being outside on adventures with us, cuddling up to hear a good story, feeling/grabbing everything around her and giggling. Every day she reminds us of the magic in even the simplest of things.”
And last but not least, a sweet shot of the tiny family! We can’t get enough of that smile and we’re sure you can’t either!
