Erik Blake turned 7 in January, and is Tyler's big brother. He wanted a baby sister badly, so he could be the "big brother." When we found out that the baby was a boy, he appeared to lose some of his enthusiasm. I reminded him that he would still be the big brother. He quickly corrected me saying, "No MeeMaw . . . I will be "the boss of it now." He is playing basketball again this year, and was reading on the fourth grade level in the first grade. (His parents always read to him before he could read.) We get along so well, and enjoy spending time together. We like to go to bed early, and get up early. We love nature, and he is so fun to be around.
This is my youngest grandson, Tyler Marley. He turned two in September. (This picture is from last spring before he was weaned.) He is a very unique character . . . very moody . . . and more dramatic than any baby that I have seen in my fifty years going through the terrible twos. He calls me "Umm-Maw." I have gotten him interested in birds, and we watch them at the birdfeeder from the porch."
These are my two sons, David Mikeal and Robert Adam, and my oldest grandson, Erik Blake. Adam was 26 in May,and David was 19 in June. Adam is Tyler's and Erik's dad, and his wife Karen was working, (or she would be in these pictures too! I will do a piece on her later.) Adam loves anything Irish, collects dragons, and is an engraver by trade. David loves music, cars, and is starting to become interested in social issues. He prepares food at a local restaurant. He is not married or dating, but is a very lonely guy. Although he does not talk about it much. . . his self esteem is very low at this point of his life. His girlfriend of about 5 years moved to Kentucky, and he has not met anyone yet. I pray that the right one will come along someday. He is such a caring and considerate person . . . even if he is mine. (No, I know my children have faults too. LOL!!!) Both of my sons love art, and always enjoy doing sketches in their spare time. I have raised them by myself for the most part, and I think we are closer because of the struggles we have had to go through in our lives. I always wanted girls until I became pregnant. I wanted seven daughters, and had names picked out for each one of them by the time I was 12. I wouldn't trade what God decided I could raise best for anything in the world.

You have a lovely family!
Thank you, Droopy.
You have such handsome sons and grandsons Joy. I have two sone Duncan (35) and David (27) and a daughter Laura (24). I love my daughter to bits but my sons hold a very special place in my heart as yours do in yours.
Oh! You have a David also! Adam named David. He liked to watch Nightrider when he was little, and liked David Hasselhoff. He wanted to name him "David Hassle" but I said no. (Of course, Adam was watching Julia Child as she created chocolate leaves when he was about four. He said, "I wish she was my mama." I asked him if it was because she could make chocolate look like leaves. He said, "No, I just like the way she talks." )
