My little grandchildren

During the year two new grandchildren were born. In June the Wren had a little girl called Helena:

This is Helena with Joe.

In August Jack and Miki had another little boy, called Owen:

This is Owen and Allan together.

And lastly:

That naughty little Allan having a cuddle and a story with Grandma Jill!

Ok you win, I did cheat a bit with just one piccie and a line of text!

What cute kids and what a pround Grandma you look!

Helena, Owen and Allan are all very gorgeous, a delight for their grandmother and all concerned! Enjoy watching them grow!

Oh, you're such a wonderful grandma to read to them. My wife and I were not big readers, but we read to our children when they were little, and today they LOVE reading (because we raised them to love it).

I used all sorts of funny voices and used a lot of dynamic range, so that I needed tea to soothe my throat after reading to my children. Those were good times.

Lovely grandchildren. I'm sure you are adoring them. Just popped by to say hi and let you know I'm back to doing my Word Imperfect blog at last. Hope to see you there.

Oh super! Piccies of the brand new grandchildren AT LAST! You've been a very bad blogger y'know!
What a batch of sweeties! So good that you can go to the other side of the world to read books to Allan, and soon to Owen. Happy grandma-ing!

Oh gorgeous you proud Grammy! Thanks for the recent nudge, new post nestling in the weeds over at my place.

poor grandma Jill- just when you think you have got rid of all those kids.. they pop out some more!

I have told my children to give me fair warning, so I can be out when they drop in... ahahahaha!

I am sorry I've missed this. I'm going to have to track here regularly because it looks like you're posting more regularly again, though I'll bet this one will be up front for awhile!

What cute pics, what very cute grandchildren! You are blessed. I'm sure they love their grandma, and can't get too much of her reading to them.

Aw, how precious! Thanks for sharing the piccies. Why do babies make us all mushy? Who cares!
