Being an uncle when you are still a kid. (It's great!)

We had the joy of spending the day with Mrs 25 and her family this week. We took a vote. Granddaughter is the most beautiful baby in the world. Mr 9, Mr 15 and Miss 13 are all madly in love with her. Miss 17 is just as head over heels, but I didn't manage to snap her. They all vote that being an uncle and aunt is the best ever.

Of course, this new arrival hasn't dampened our enthusiasm for Grandson. He is a walking, talking genius! Every time we get to spend time with him he does something new that amazes us. We all play and play and play when he comes over. He makes sure of it! And he loves his new sister with a passion. Being a grandmother is pretty darn good too! (For those of you who have asked, my Bradley and I are Ma and Pa to our grandchildren. We tossed around all sorts of ideas, but decided to make ourselves Ma and Pa. Possibly after Ma and Pa Kettle - we do have a lot of children. Or maybe after the Larkins. (Ma and Pop) Who doesn't love "The Darling Buds of May"? Right now grandson calls us both Ma. We are an interchangeable unit obviously. I like being considered to be the same as my Bradley!) So, indulge me and look at these photos of my children admiring my child's child!

Being a grandparent is just the best thing in the world, we have five of the most beautiful granddaughters and three very handsome grandsons. Each and everyone is the best in the world!! Wouldn't mind another that size though, I miss having a baby around the place...sigh...
