Just perfect

Hey, I recognize that guy from the $100,000 bills in my wallet.

But seriously, this is a fantastic portrait. Wilson had his hands full with domestic issues and trying to stay out of the war in Europe, but this is such a serene family moment. Also looks like baby was in the middle of a yawn.

An old hand at babies

Grandpa Wilson has clearly been around babies before. He holds the baby closely and happily while the new dad balances him on a pillow. Let's hear it for grandfathers!

Pround grandpa

What a proud grandpa President Wilson must have been! The look on his face tells it all.

Family Resemblance

Judging from the photo of Dean Sayre in the National Cathedral in the previous post, it looks like he inherited his grandfather's looks pretty closely.


Thes two picures of Wilson and the Grandson are just delightful. Perfect for the occasion; an excellent choice, Dave!!
