    Go on. Let's see your baby photos!

    Gotta say. I'm not a baby-fan but she was quite sweet.

    That's nothing. My two are 31 and less than 2 weeks away from rising 30!

    My granddaughter is nearly as tall as her mum and is definitely on her way to being grown up (at 10), while her brother is still a little lad (7). Saw our younger boy yesterday (38) and took him for lunch. Wearing a v cool leather jacket - a bit Marlon Brando. (Just googled Marlon Brando's leather jacket - he was so beautiful!)

    That’s a real work of art. Fantastic!
    I wish I had one of those for my daughters!

    We were all babies once! It's nature's way.

    My grandson and I watch Supervet together and discuss canine anatomy and veterinary surgery. He's 11. I love it!

    Granddaughter (8) then scolds my neighbour (aged 78) for not closing the kitchen door. "You can't leave that open. The dogs are dirty and they'll get in the living room. You have to keep it closed."

    Yep. They grow up alright!

    My granddaughter is way taller than me and my grandson rapidly approaching.

    I can plank longer than them though. :D

    I don't suppose any of you remember but I posted some photos of my granddaughter last year and some (insert insult here) started being nasty and got the thread blocked. So I'm not joining in. She is just over a year now, and cute as hell, and I appreciate the little mite.

    A sketch done by a street artist... my mum always told me the guy in front of us in the queue was William Shakespeare...

    I do and she was cute. I.assume she still is.

    My gremlin child is 22. I'm still just taller, which annoys her. Mwa ha ha. It hasn't felt particularly fast watching her grow up in real time.

    No. It hasn't felt fast to me either.

    Sorry the thread title was a play on 20 years passing in 5 minutes...

    Oh no ! That's just grim . I wondered where the thread had got to . Your granddaughter was and I'm assuming still is very cute and had a lovely smile .
    It was a heartwarming thread and much needed and I'm so very sorry it was trashed .

    Thanks for that. I remember earlier vidoes of Lotte. Her father extends it every few years as she gets older (her brother Vince too).

    I think posting pictures of young children is against Ts&Cs, like with other media (who normally blur/pixellate faces)

    My Daughter is in her early 20s now and works in London - doing a job that I know I couldn't do.

    It seems like 5 minutes ago I was pushing her round the streets of my home city in a push chair.

    I think that is a big development milestone, when they can do/are qualified to do something you can't.

    I got that. It just made me think about all the it goes so fast comments you hear and think whether I agreed. The changes hit home when you watch it in five minutes though!

    I couldn't deal with what my Daughter has to do on a daily basis.

    However - she was born to do the job she does and she loves every minute of it despite the stress and the long hours she works.
