Grandpapa or Gramps?

Maybe even grandfather or grandpa.

Time will tell what Addy decides to call him but in the meantime they are having some nice conversations.

I’m reading many of your posts because that is easy to do while holding an infant but I cannot leave a comment easily because that involves two hands and my hands and lap are occupied several hours during the day. Here in Eastern Washington we’re making plans for Easter day and when Dear and I return home we’ll have a belated Easter celebration with our other kids.

For now I’ll leave you with an Easter postcard from Dear’s Great Great Aunt Emma’s stash from the early 1900’s.

  1. Picking out a name to go by; if the other grandparents are also “first timers” it is interesting to figure it all out. Then maybe the grandchild has their own idea? I read about one solo grandfather who was called grandma by his first grand child. He loved it! All his grands went on to also call him grandma. 😂

  2. The Professor is called Bapa. And I am Meema. The first grandchild to talk evidently chooses the name.
    I read lots of blogs but sometimes don’t comment. My hands have yarn wrapped around them 🙂

  3. I love these sweet pictures! Our little one chose to call the farmer Papa. It was one of her first words and she sort of whispered it at first – so adorable. She sort of says Grammie for me but we’ll see what it is eventually.

  4. Oh my Ellen…those pictures are SO precious of Addy and her grandfather having a talk, Think she will be the apple of his eye? 😉

    Happy Wednesday to you!

  5. Sweet photos . . . special moments!!

    It is fun to choose grandparent names, but a little daunting because you know that these names are going to be the ones that all future grandchildren will use! (Ron and I are “Papa” and “Gran.”) One thing for sure: the names are the best when your own little people learn to say them!
