From tiny to towering


Despite a roomful of toys, this measuring stick is the first thing our grand kids darted for when they were little. They were so excited when they could move their name which indicated growth. Sean is 18 and George is 20. Last month our house overflowed with family for Bill's birthday. The first thing all of the grown kids went for again was the measuring stick. George is 6'5". Sean's 6'

        Kyle 24, Sean 18, George 20, Ashley 27, (9 months pg with Alex), Madison 19.
 It seems like only yesterday I was nuzzling their baby necks and kissing their baby toes.
                                                                       And now this!
I cannot believe I get to do it all over again. Also can't believe that one day Liam and Alex will have big, old, stinky feet, too.
I am so smitten with this tiny kitten.
 And so is Paw-paw Bill. There is something about his voice and happy face that is magnetic to children. We are so fortunate to have reared our own children, had a hand in shaping the lives of our grandchildren, and now we are so blessed to have a chance to do it again with these tiny boys.

I like how baby Alex is giving Paw Paw Bill the eye in that last picture!

Linda--Of course Paw Paw Bill is magnetic. He's a mythical creature (Sas) and mythical creatures are always alluring...

What handsome grands and great-grands you have. (6'5"? Yikes.)

No! Never. :)

It happens so fast.

My great-nephew (11 months old) is asleep in a playpen next to me. I'm babysitting! I remember when his Mom, my neice, was this small.
