Our boys

Dr Son - now Dr Uncle - came down from Perth to meet his new nephew this evening. Grandson tried out his finger but didn't manage to extract any milk from it.



Our boys admire each other.




A nice cuddle. Sorry for Son's unshaven chin*.






They bonded.


* The chin is a result of his working horrendously long hours as a hospital doctor, currently 12 days on the trot, without much time to eat/sleep, let alone shave. Also he's very dark, with a dark beard. But he did shave later that evening.

How lovely. It never ceases to be amazing how we bond with babies, how instinctively we cuddle, and hold, and make all the appropriate noises, and how the babies nestle into our bodies.
GRandson is a lucky boy to be surrounded by so much love.
Has he been named?

Uncles are very important people. This is lovely to see.

Wonderful to see a man so relaxed with his new nephew - and nephew also relaxed.

Aaaawwww indeed..... your heart must be overflowing.

But at what age (ours, I mean) do we stop apologising for our sons' appearance? I bite my tongue often....

What very special photos of Dr Uncle and his new nephew. Can you share your grandson's name with us? Please....

Sweet! Son is absolutely in style with that 5 o'clock shadow, you realize. :)
