Notem que eu estou parecendo um cachorrinho para ficar entre eles kkkkk 🤣🤣🤣🤣 #family#família#avós#grandparents
Watching another human “become” something is truly an honor. Looking through my photo memories of our trip last week, the evolution of my husband to grandparent or “Papa” was finally apparent. Some of us stand in line to “become” grandparents. But others, like my husband, tread slowly, cautiously toward this role, not sure if by accepting the mantle, they will be changed beyond recognition. It’s taken him almost 5 years to find his stride with our littles. But now that they drool less, speak in nearly complete sentences, and can appreciate the finer things in life like bike riding, candy and movie theaters, there’s no mistaking his excitement to be their Papa! ❤️. Yes both sides of the generations love these bags of candy from speciality candy stores, and I’m guessing when they’re older they will enjoy getting other slightly “parentally unapproved” gifts too! It’s how he says I love you! #papaprivilages#grandparents#candyland#kidsandgrands
Spent the day with these 2 amazing humans 💖💖 Slowing down and remembering what’s most important in life is so good for the soul:
It’s family ❤️ Laughed all day long, heard stories I’ve never heard, and looked at a lot of pictures...Hit the lotto with these 2 Grands!! They aren’t the best photo subjects either: Gma said I don’t smile and papa said I don’t what face to make, guess this will work! 😂😂 #family#grandparents
Throw back Thursday means photos from the 80s featuring me as a child
I spent today with my mum's cousin looking at old photos and chatting about childhood memories. How certain family genes can be seen through the generations.
Looking back over photos of me as a child I can see similarities to own children but I started to wonder who do I look like?
My amazing grandparents (my grandpa is in the photo with me) adopted my mum in the early 50s ; they didn't tell her she was adopted until she was in her 20s.
As I am nearing my 40s I have started wondering more and more about my biological grandparents; what did they look like? Where did they live? What did they do?
Previously my mum had found out information about her birth parents and that they had gone on to have more children
So do I ask questions and dig a little deeper? what if my biological family didn't know of a older sibling (who has now died)? Why do I feel like it's "cheating" on my adoptive family?
Today we said our goodbyes to my Grandad; the kindest, most wonderful gentleman you could ever meet. Here's a #tbt to his younger years with my fabulous Grandma, reunited after all this time. I'm so thankful and lucky to have had such wonderful role models in my life #iloveyou#treasuredmemories#myhero#grandparents
