    No more babies, plus GRAND Social No. 181 link party for grandparents

    No more babies

    At this point in time, I no longer have baby grandchildren. That truth was confirmed (again) last week when Megan texted a few photos of fun at the park.

    The most recent baby, Jak, is clearly no longer a baby.

    toddler boy 

    Nope. Jak's a big boy. Just like his brothers, Mac and Bubby, who are obviously now years removed from being babies.

    brothers at park 

    No more babies.

    How the heck did that happen?

    GRAND Social No. 181

    Cheers to GRAND Social No. 181! Thank you for being here, sharing your work, and reading the work of other grandparent bloggers. Grandparents rock!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    I was always shocked at how fast Boy grew up and I'm equally shocked at how fast E is growing up. Make 'em stop!

    A very sad day indeed, when they are no longer babies...sigh.

    Your grandboys are all such good looking boys, Lisa! You must be very proud of them. Babies grow up so fast, don't they? I think my newest granddaughter may be our last grandbaby.

    Well, what can I say? It just happens I guess! But on the bright side, each year brings its own new abilities and conversations. This is the reward for having been there since "day one!"
    Such handsome little guys - and always so happy!

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJoyce

    They do grow up fast -- they were just babies an eye blink before! Cuties!

    I'm often nostalgic for their cute baby habits, but it's very rewarding to see them turning into lovely little people, too!

    Oh Lisa how we all must go through as our family grows. Would not want it any other way but doesn't hurt to share feelings. Those boys are healthy and strong looking. What a great thing.

    They grow up way too fast don't they? I'm happy celebrating the birth of our fourth grand- daughter a few weeks ago but I know when I blink my eyes she'll be walking and talking. Thanks for hosting. :)

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTamuria

    Aw, no babies but really handsome boys! Thanks for hosting!

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAll that's Jas

    Tell Megan it's time for another one! :-) They are so adorable. I got a kick out of Jak's helmet - so funny!

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCathy Chester

    I always thought my children (5) grew up way too fast especially since I had five in seven they were close and time just flew. I am now the grandma of nine grandsons. ages 14 down to 6 months and they seem to be growing way faster.....wish I can slow down time. Which is why you must enjoy every minute....

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAgnes Shapiro

    When did that happen?! You post photos often so I am just shocked that all of a sudden Bubby looks so much older. They all look older but him especially! Thanks for hosting!

    November 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterGrandma Kc

    I don't care what the science and biology books say. Our grandchildren grow even faster than our children!

    November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNonnieKelly

    I remember when you announced when your first grandson was born. Wasn't that yesterday?

    While it is so fun to watch them grow and develop, we grandmas sometimes miss those snugly babies!!

    November 17, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNina Lewis

    Those three boys of yours are getting so tall and grown up looking. Handsome - all three of them. :-)

    Come on now, tell the truth, in our eyes our children are STILL babies. ; ) But BB knows exactly what you mean. Here for another social; missed you guys. BB2U
