All the grandbabies

We've had a lovely week. On Monday we went up north to visit Son, Daughter-in-Law and Middle Granddaughter. Here she is having a sleep on her father, while he multitasks by also stroking one of their cats. (The piled-up sofa cushions are to provide a toddler-free perch for the furry friends.)

Then on Wednesday, Daughter 2 and Littlest Granddaughter came to visit. Grandson and Biggest Granddaughter are very good with her. They're experienced big cousins, since they also have younger cousins on the other side of their family. Son and his family came down for the weekend too, so we had all three of our children and all four of the grandchildren together, which was wonderful.

I may be biased but I do think she's cute.

Son bonded with his niece,

while Middle Granddaughter (that's her hand and foot) at least tolerated her.

But then they all went away. We took Daughter 2 and Littlest Granddaughter to the station and walked back through Princes Street Gardens. At last, after a cold spring, the weather has improved and people were basking in the sunshine.

After some time and effort, we got the house tidy again. I'm not exactly saying that this makes up for them all being away, but it's some compensation.


  1. You have beautiful and intelligent grandchildren; I know you are thankful, so I'll try not to be too jealous!

  2. Oh, I am jealous of your weather! It has rained all day today and is supposed to rain all day Monday and SNOW on Tuesday. But how lovely all your grandchildren are, perhaps especially the newest granddaughter. Babies are so special.

  3. Lots of lovely summer garden fun to come with the grandchildren. Can't wait.

  4. Oooh, Littlest GD is LUSH!! I know your son will have his reasons but wish we could get to know Middley GD as well....

    Spring will not arrive properly and it's winding me up a bit. So much rain... So few flowers and sunshine. Sigh.. Lxx

  5. Ohmygosh -- I just can't get over how big your babies are getting {sniff}{sniff} It looks like you had a wonderful time with all of them. And they're ALL adorable!
