The joy of grandfatherhood

Husband and I were both quite depressed on Friday evening so it was a good job we could get down to Devon yesterday to be brightened up. Kitchens don't seem so important when you're holding Grand-Daughter. Any resemblance to Grand-dad is unavoidable! Although Grand-daughter has more hair.

Elder Son and Daughter-in-law were also visiting. Here proud uncle tries to look not too terrified while holding a precious bundle. And he's rewarded with a rare eyes-open moment.

Aww! She is lovely and how nice to have a family gathering like that :-)

I have finally caught up with all your posts from while I was away.

I'm so glad you have this darling little grand-daughter to dote on and take your mind away from everything else.

She such a sweetie and I am going to look forward to watching her grow.

much love

Oh, I knew this would take your mind off your kitchen woes--What an adorable little girl! I'm surprised you let Husband and Elder Son have a chance to hold her:)

All is indeed right with the world. Can you tell I'm catching up? I've been home for almost a week and I'm just not over visiting you, Granny.

Oh, how sweet! I particularly like the 'uncle' photo! I think that's exactly how my boys would hold someone else's baby! LOL!
