Showing Photographs


Guess who came to visit Nonna this weekend?  Penny Lane, in all her hippy headband glory.
She'll be moving close in July.  Son (her Dad) just finished his internship and will receive his Ph.D.
It has been a long hard winding road and we are so proud of him.
One more year of a post-doc and his little family is over the hump.  And, new baby sibling for Penny is coming before Christmas. 

Notice, she is beginning to dislike posing for pictures.  Precious twos.

    1. Thank you Bea. He has had a long road as he got his masters in an area he decided he didn't want to do so it was almost like starting over again. His proudest achievement is Penny. I have never seen a more loving father.

    1. That is so funny Monique. She is a doll, but starting to assert her independence. She makes me laugh, especially at her parents when she does her best terrible twos.

  5. Congratulations to your Son and Family !
    I can not believe she is so big already. I remember her smaller. Love the little twinkle in her eye.... she could be a hand full I think.
    Again so happy for your family !

    1. I think so too. And, quite smart, but I think she'll be an actress.

    1. Oh Ry. Thank you. She was always such a smiley and I just melt. Just went to Oliver's 8th birthday lunch. Can't believe how fast they are growing up.
