This is Emily.  She is my eldest Grandson, Adam's tiny daughter and recently turned two years old.  There is an older photo on my sidebar.   

Emily, age two years.

Adam is Emily's daddy at age two years
This is Grandson Adam at the same age.  Other than the coloring they look so much alike.  Adams eye's were and still are green.  I am always struck by how alike they are.  Even their behavor at that age is similar.
Emily has her mother, Christina's coloring...and it is gorgeous!   

I had him a lot when he was a baby because his daddy was in college and his mommie worked.   When Emily was born, Adam called me and said "She is yours, Grandma..I give her to you!"  In essence what he was saying was.."I love you!" 
I understood!

Thank you for letting me brag a bit.  It is a Grandmothers right...isn't it?  You don't mind? :)
Love and hugs,

P.S. Emily recently won a "cutest toddler" contest in Orange County, California and was on the front page of the newspaper....and now I AM bragging and you can smack me down!!  Now I deserve it!!  :)

What a precious pair---it's so wonderful to see the little ones looking just like their parents at the same age.

I teared up over Christmas presents last year and had to explain, for I had just opened a picture of our Little Grand, with her Daddy's picture in the background, smiling over her shoulder.

Brag ON, Sweetpea!! Something like THIS is worth bragging about.

Oh sweet Mona, it IS our rite of passage to throw back our shoulders and bust some buttons givin' our grandkiddos a great big shout out!!! It's our job....don't ya just love it.

She is just a precious little doll. I just want to scoop her up and give her a big squeeze.

I've been MIA in Brownsville Tx with my Daddy who has battled a rare form of Leukemia for almost three decades. Wed. evening he lost the battle but he no longer has to suffer. For that I am happy.

God bless you my beautiful friend and have yourself a marvelous weekend!!! :o)
