Weekly bird in the hand

This week's things I am grateful for - my bird in the hand - is a short list of one.  And that is Maxwell.  He is my new grandson - born to Adam and Alexa.  He was born January 25th, weighing 7lbs and 4 oz. 

He was born 11 days after my granddaughter Evelina.  Two babes in two weeks!  How great is that!  When Adam phoned shortly after Maxwell was born, I could hear little Max making gurgling noises down the phone! Our first hello!  My heart melted right there and then :-D

We fly back to England on Wednesday - so obviously we are going to have a wonderful time over there, cuddling with two new grandchildren!  How lucky are we?

Isn't that just a gorgeous photo!

Oh! Congratulations! I am so jealous. I can't wait to be a grandmother, but I will have to. Your grandbabies are beautiful. Enjoy your trip!
