Little Peter Ray joined the family on August 8. His birth date is special for our family as he shares a birthday with our son Ben, Uncle Ben to baby Peter, and with Grandpa. Dave and I thought it was so cool when I had Ben on Dave's birthday twenty-three years ago, and to say Dave was pleased that a grandson was born on his birthday is the understatement of the year. How exciting to have three generations in our family share August 8. You can bet in 2015 we will be celebrating big time the fifty-seventh, twenty-fourth, and first birthdays of our August eighters!!!!
Peter Ray weighed in at ten and half pounds!
And just last Wednesday evening our little half-pint, Aubrey Lee was born, she weighed in at seven pounds, six ounces and is just a beautiful little doll baby. Aubrey was born on December 3, and three is special birthday for our family too. Dave's mom's birthday is October 3, Alivia's (Aubrey's big sister) is November 3, Aubrey is December 3, and Dave's dad is January 3. I like that we have four birthdays in a row each exactly a month apart.
All our grandchildren are growing up fast, Henry is six and started kindergarten this year, he loves it and his favorite part of the day is riding on the school bus. Patrick is four and he started pre-school, he has three best friends, Bam, Boone and Logan. Charlie and Alivia are two and as I watch them frequently they are BEST FRIENDS FOREVER, and get up to all sorts of shenanigans. If they are out of sight and there is a lot of giggling you better go investigate immediately! And of course the new babies, Peter is four months and loves to snuggle, and little Aubrey is a week old and just so tiny and precious and she loves to snuggle too.
Well here are grandmas brag pictures of the half-dozen splendid grandchildren:
