Our Special Little Man

Some photographs of our special little man Joseph and our first grandchild on his first birthday,

It has been hard over the last few years , kids have grown up and they have their own lives and careers making it harder for them to come and visit , plus little Joseph has spent quite a bit of time in and out of hospital.

Due to the immigration cock up We have not been over there for quite a few years missing many important things in Toms and Becs lives including seeing Joseph born

Looking at the photos of Joseph remind me of Becs whose hair was exactly the same color how our lives fly , just seems like a twinkling since I would get home from work and Becs would be holding her hands up indicating she wanted to be picked up,

The circle of life is truly amazing.

It will be a great holiday in September when we see the kids and their partners, my brother and all his tribe, my mum who is well into her 80's and still sharp as a pin. but it will be even better to see this special little man who has a great smile and a wonderful life to look forward to with

Reflections of a proud granddad

He's a handsome little guy. Grandchildren are great, I've got three and one on the way. It makes getting older worth it just to be able to have them around. I'm sure you'll both have a wonderful time in September.

Fantastic! I`ve got two grandchildren, I see them when I am able, but it does go to show how time flies!

What a redhead! He looks even more adorable than he did in that last picture and appears to be growing up to be real charmer. I have a feeling he is going to wrap you around his little finger when you finally get to hug him. *G*

That's what my family would call a "shock" of red hair.

He's adorable!

Thanks for the pipes music, way cool:)

What a gorgeous little guy he is! I love the hair and that sweet face! I am so blessed to have my grand kids so close by. They spent three nights here this week and I love it!

The contraption in my last post is my grandmother's old cream separater, it's about 75 years old!

He is adorable...I hope your immigration issues get resolved soon. You should be able to travel back and forth "across the pond" freely....
