I’m never 100% sure, but I think my parents now have 23 grandkids.  My siblings are kind of split into older ones and younger ones (my brother Mark, who is just older than I am, is the transitional sibling).  My older siblings all have finished having kids and their kids are now either in their teens or closing in on them (for the most part).  My younger siblings and I all have kids under the age of 3.  This made Toren quite a novelty among his cousins (though he was even more of a novelty to one of his cousins – Ethan Robbins – he isn’t quite 3 yet).  So, we played Toren tag, letting most of them have a chance to hold him.  I didn’t get pictures of all of them holding him, but here are the ones I did get:

Debi’s sister’s son, Ethan, also got a chance to hold Toren:

Ethan was particularly funny as he kept wanting to look at Toren and touch him, but whenever he would get close to him, he’d get really quiet, then touch him softly and run away.
