    What a beautiful big baby boy , you must all be very happy. Those photos of four generations are very precious, I have two , one with my grandmother my Mum, Louise and I . Then I have them with Mum when my grandchildren were born

  22. mimiwi2013 says:

    I love the 4 generation photo! They are such precious treasures! Elliot is a big baby! He certainly does not look like a new born. Our Jeff was 8 lb 2 oz, when he was born, and is now 6 feet 6 inches tall! Now we need a picture of you holding Elliot and also one of you and Janine with him. Congratulations to you all. It is also wonderful to have them living not too far away, so you can enjoy watching him grow!! We met 3 of ours this summer, but still have a 1 yr. old and a 3 yr. old that we have not met yet!!
