It was a hot day today (42 degrees) so Mrs 25, her bloke, and grandson came over to keep cool. Mrs 25 is very pregnant with granddaughter (we think!). Miss 17 is in the photo of grandson above. He is busy not smiling at the camera. Eighteen month olds are quite cheeky! Of course we all think he's the bees knees as you can tell from Miss 17's adoring gaze.

Mrs 25 brought some sewing with her. She makes all of grandson's clothes because he is not an average kid. (We contend that he is above average, but we are somewhat biased.) She also designs his clothing because no ordinary patterns fit him. She had been sewing some new shirts for him and had been halted by the latest heatwave, so today I finished off three shirts that she started. I think that grandson certainly was born to the right mother because he would be naked if his Mum was not so talented! It is so much fun to finish things off and small clothes are so much fun to sew too!

Oh My Gosh! I can't believe how much he has changed! He doesn't have that baby baby look - he's starting to look like a little boy! So cute.

I think he is very lucky with a grandmother like you too! He is getting big, isn't he? The baby face is gone!

Your grandson is getting so grown up. He doesn't even look like a baby anymore!! Still as adorable as ever, though! :)
Sorry to hear of your heatwave--I can certainly sympathize.
Love the little shirts. Your grandson will be extra handsome while wearing them!
Take care-

It's a lot nicer this morning and some rain I can hear audible sighs from the garden. I think he looks like you Kris.

Kristin, he is so gorgeous .... he has the cutest face. I love the shirts, and your Jess is certainly talented, with clever ideas. You are a great grandmother to finish off the shirts for her. I guess that's what we do for our kids isn't it.

Oh gosh he has grown! what a georgeous little man! SO pleased to hear Mrs 25 is doing well. It only feels recently that you told me she was JUST pregnant.

BTW MIss 17 is so pretty
