Remember I mentioned that Timmy got christened 2 weeks ago? Here's a sneak peak at our Irish Catholic beerfest that followed. Ok, well not really...but I did want to at least start getting some pictures up. My TWO for Tuesday this week is Timmy and my Pop-pop Doc. Check out Eight is Great and/or Who Says 8 is Enough? to find out who else is playing along. This is one of favorite themes to play along with and I hope Deanna will be posting it again soon. But in the meantime, I know that Debi is trying to keep the momentum going.
My mom's parents have 7 children (my mom's the 2nd of the 7) and loads of grandchildren and they now have 6 great-granchildren. When I was young, their youngest were still at home so we didn't get heaps of attention from them...at least we older grandkids tell ourselves that's the reason. Maybe they always did love babies, but as we got to be teenagers, a whole new wave of grandkids were born and they were the apples of my grandparent's eyes. I'm embarrassed to say that I've always striven to have "approval" from my grandparents, whatever that means. I lost my other grandmother (who in retrospect, I know loved us to pieces) early on and only ever had one living grandfather. Ok, getting to the point...I haven't felt like I've received a whole lot of affection from grandparents growing up, so it absolutely delights me to see them with my children, especially Timmy, who they adore. My mom tells me after every time they see him how much they get a kick out of him and I love seeing them ask to hold him.
Pop -why do you have so many wrinkles?
Sorry, that's 2 sets of 2. I was just going to do the "Daniels" (Timothy Daniel and Raymond Daniel), but I got carried away...
