Happy 14th Birthday Dillon
Today my grandson Dillon celebrates his 14th birthday. Where have the intervening years gone it seems only yesterday that I was sitting in the hospital anxiously awaiting his arrival. He was the first grandchild and as a proud grandma I have masses of memories and photos but here are just a few you might like to share as I go down memory lane. He had to be in an incubator for a short while as he was jaundiced but he soon recovered and a few months later he was one cool dude.
Dillon's first birthday and around the same time he liked to try his hand at driving.
He loved this little car and this was taken in Sept. 1994 just before the family went to live in Dublin. The other photo was taken a few months before on a trip to France for a family reunion.
On Dillon's third birthday he had two cakes and the other one that is not photographed was a brilliant Thomas the Tank Engine complete with carriages (made by Beccy). On St Patricks day he went to the fancy dress disco as 'The Fat Controller' and I think he won a prize. (click to enlarge the facial expression says it all)
When Dillon's uncle got married he was one of the best men and carried the rings.
This was taken in Cornwall 2005.
I don't think either Dillon or Ben were too keen to pose for this photo.
More co-operative here just to please his grandma.
If you have already read Beccy's post for today you will know Dillon no longer likes having his photo taken but he is creative and likes experimenting so he sent me these last two photos earlier today so that I could finish with an up-to-date image. He hasn't published anything on his blog recently but it shows some of his past creations.
Dillon, We all hope you had a lovely day and that you enjoyed the curry and lemon cake and we send you lots of love and hugs xxx
