ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge - March

Any regular followers will know we have four sons, all married with children of their own; six of our seven grandchildren are boys, only one is a girl; her Dad is our youngest son. None of us could believe it possible for this family to produce such a rarity, One of a Kind! Many family and friends suggest that she will be spoilt but I made a promise to myself a long time ago that not one of our grandchildren would be treated any different to another; it can be hard though. I often see a little dress that would be perfect for her but if I get a dress for her, the boys all have to receive something too and that can get expensive!
This photo is of my second son holding his one and only niece; because he is a FIFO worker and has a family of his own he doesn't get to spend as much time with her as he would like and she is a little shy of him. He was ecstatic to be able to pick her up and get a smile recently and made sure there were photos to prove it.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, kind regards.
