Five generations.








Well here you have it.   After yesterday's post I thought I would just show you five generations of my family.   I am rather short of time today but the photographs (apologies for the quality) show my grandmother, my mother, me, my son and his first-born daughter. As  she is shortly to be married, perhaps I shall live long enough to see a sixth generation!
Sorry that blogger has chosen to put them on backwards but I don't think there is any doubting which generation is which,  What strikes me forcibly (and I have not noticed it before) is how like her father (peeping out of the old shed hole) my grand-daughter is (in the yellow waterproof  climbing on the fence.)

Two peas Pat. Wonderful to see the progression, if backwards!

How wonderful to see all those photos together - and yes they are like peas in a pod.

Hi Pat,
How VERY much alike the two of them look at that age. I am watching with fascination as my three young grandchildren morph between looking like their mother then their father then back. And all three of them looked just like my husband when they were born. I read an interesting article about genes inherited from grandparents. It is not 25% from each. It can vary quite a lot. Hence grandkids who look JUST like grandpa Ray must have gotten a lot more genetic material from him!

Great to see family photos like that. Have you tried 'Copying and Pasting' to get your pix in the right order?

I thought they were photos of the same child Pat - the likeness is so strong. Do hope you get to see the sixth generation.

What fun!
Yes, granddaughter and son should be twins.

Thanks for calling. And Cro - I am absolutely terrible at two things to do with blogging - one is cutting and pasting and the other is providing links. Yes I am lazy and should learn I know.

I thought that your son and your grand daughter were the same lovely, curly haired child as I scrolled down through the photos, until I read your explanation of the photos! I enjoy seeing photographs of family through the generations. It is interesting to see family resemblance down through the years.

In the past, I have had struggles getting pictures posted into my blog in the correct order also. Often I have to remove the misplaced picture and put it in again and again. Slow going sometimes.
