I finally took the "year" photos with my kids - they may be a month or so late, but it's done! Yay!! My kids have birthdays a month apart - Sept 04 & Oct 07. So we've been busy with birthdays recently (that's my excuse for not doing the photos until now)! One of the things I love to do every birthday is take a photo to see how much the children have grown through the year. With my daughter, I started a tradition of putting her in a dress that my mother handed down to me (one that she wore to her brother's wedding, and that I just absolutely LOVE!) on or around her birthday and taking a photo of her in "Granny's dress". I really does show the growth that happens in a year!
Here - take a trip down memory lane with me.
|At just 1 year old|
|At 2 - look how much she's grown. She's a little girl now, no more baby!|
|Just for amusement value - me in the dress (probably the first and last time I even fit into it!!) - little girl still 2|
3 years old
|Showing some attitude at 4!|
|A Kindergartener at 5|
And now - in First Grade and 6 years old!!
And then there's the little guy. I will be upfront and say I somehow neglected to take photos around his second birthday - bad mummy! His photos are taken in a shirt of Daddy's from our days at university. He wore it to co-ordinate with a ballgown I wore to some or other Ball.
Anyway here he is!
|At 1 - and sick with a cold :(|
