This weekend, as a real treat, Son and Daughter-in-Law brought 11-week-old Granddaughter M for a three-day visit. You'll have to take my completely unbiased word for it that she's an absolutely beautiful baby with huge dark blue eyes and peachy skin. Son doesn't want her blogged or Facebooked, which I have to admit is probably a good idea. I do keep thinking that I should only show the backs of the heads of the other two grandchildren, just in case some random horrible person should chance on the blog. Anyway, here is Son reading an educational book with his daughter.

And here he is, admiring her at the Botanics. He is very besotted.

And here she is in a sling, on a different walk. They went away this morning and, lovely as it was to have them, the house seems very babyless now, alas.

Daughter 1 and her husband and family have been visiting Daughter 2 in London. The children were asked where their favourite place had been. Grandson said, "Trafalgar Square". Granddaughter L said, "Granny's house". She somewhat misunderstood the question but... ahhh.


  1. Awww, that little L is a Doll -- she sure knows how to melt Granny's heart! Son looks so happy --Fatherhood is treating him well! Is Baby M sleeping well?

  2. I understand his caution, but without names and more information, no one would ever be able to find her. At my level of expertise anyway. Granny's house! How precious.

  3. I think L understanding the scope of the question, was spot on with heranswer!

  4. Isn't it wonderful seeing one's children turn into wonderful, loving parents. That's when I felt I perhaps HAD done a decent job of raising them! And of course you're not biased, or exadurating one iota!!

  5. Your grandchildren are L, M, and N? Fun....You have a lovely family. Your older granddaughter has unerring judgement in choosing a favorite place!
