5 generations.

Preslee is extremely blessed to have met her great-great grandfather this weekend! I have been planning to get a picture of the 5 generations since before Preslee was born and I am so glad we finally made it happen!
Piggy (age 92) used to always tell me that he wanted us to have a "blue eyed baby girl" for him. He has lost a lot of his memory but after explaining it to him a few times, I think he understood who we were! Makes me sad though that he doesn't realize he got his wish!
He couldn't get over how little she was! He kept asking how old she was and telling her she was a cutie!
5 generations- Matt's gram, Piggy, Lisa Matt and Preslee
He was much like his old self and was so happy we were there! And Preslee was perfect even though she had no nap before we went!
She talked and smiled at him so much! It was such a wonderful thing to watch them interacting together!
He also said many times that if we ever wanted to get rid of her, that he wanted her! haha! It was so sweet!
Matt and I are very thankful for our family and how much they love our daughter!

This was precious! Preslee is adorable...her pretty hair kind of makes her look like a big girl even though she's so cute and petite...I know I've made the same comment before, but for me, this is what makes her SO darlin!

How cool!! My husband has a Great Grandma and she got to meet our little boy Jackson this past November. We had 5 generations there as well. I could kick myself for not getting a picture, but I did get a picture of Jackson and his Great Great Grandma. :-) So sweet.

This brought tears to my eyes. What a great blessing for all of you. I know this visit just made his day, week, month, and probably year. And how sweet that he "wants" her. Just adorable.
