photos of our grandchildren

Here are a few photos of our grandkids as promised. The first four are
of Mini, who's just celebrated her first birthday. Mrs C and I went down
to London last weekend for the occasion ... you'll see the delicious
chocolate cake that Mrs C made, and some evidence that Mini had been
eating some (and enjoyed it too, despite being unwell with a bad cold).

The last photo is of her cousin, Shibbykins, which I took a week earlier.
Shibby is 4 months older than Mini.

A couple of funny stories to tell you about Mini ... I showed her how to
give her teddy bear a good telling off for falling off the settee
(something which that naughty teddy kept on doing). "Stay there!", I
shouted, which was of no use at all ... Teddy kept on falling off.
Anyway, Mini was really laughing away at all this, and started to call
out a version of "Stay there!" herself ... "Day dare!"
Anyway, her mum is still breastfeeding her (but less often now), and when
Mini finished, she sat up and pointed at her Ma's breast and said: "Day

We also taught Mini how to lift her arms up whenever we shouted out
"Hooray!" ... so well, that she'd lift up her arms and expect us to
respond with a "Hooray", which we did. Last night Mini had a very bad
night's sleep ... she didn't sleep much until dawn, when she nodded off
for a couple of hours. Her mum went in to check her when she was stirring
.... Mini sat up straight away, with a huge grin on her face, and lifted
her arms up sky high.

Thanks, Rachel ... we love them "to bits"... and they're not
at all camera-shy, which is great.
