Carl

Christmas, 1974. This is four generations, my Grandpa, Daddy, and my first child, Carl, with my husband.
Carl was the first grandchild on both sides of the family and first nephew of his Aunt Mildred. If he didn't end up spoiled, he missed a good chance! He nicknamed Mildred "DingDing" because she was often practicing for her piano lessons.
He now lives in Virginia and I haven't seen him in a long time, but my son Cameron was able to visit him last summer.
