SFMTY #5 - Then and Now

Another blog carnival that I really enjoy participating in is Kristen's "Sincerely Fro' Me to You." Now the idea is to use embarassing photos or photos you know you will never scrapbook. Actually all the photos I use are ones that I'd like to put in a scrapbook, but the problem is I don't have time to do it. So I consider my blog the next best thing to a scrapbook.

When my girls were babies they truly looked very similar. In fact, a lot of people think they look alike now, and even ask if the older two are twins. Today, I want to share with you a picture of my youngest, Malia.


And here's my baby, Now!

Where'd my little pudgy blonde baby go? She had the lightest hair of all the girls - now she has the darkest. When she was a baby, her eyes were green, now they're hazel, and actually look brown most of the time. When she was little, she loved to hang around me, often with her little arms wrapped around my neck. Now, not so much.

So, mama, enjoy that little one. And take pictures, lots and lots of pictures. They change so fast, you won't believe it!

Now, head on over to We Are That Family to see more photos and learn the stories behind them.

You are so right. In the blink of an eye, they are changed and bigger. Sigh, the time does go by fast.

She's a beauty. Then and now!

It's shocking how fast it flew by...and yet, some days(phases)seemed to never end!

OMgosh, I'm so stunting their growth.

I don't want them to be big!

Wanda said...

Very beautiful! It's hard isn't it Mom?
I'm dealing with growing up babes too...18, 15, 13!

Where did the time go?

She is gorgeous in both photos. And you are so right, time goes by way too fast.

I'm right there with you, I have an 18 year old daughter and a 14 year old. My baby that is left is an 8 year old boy who loves his mamma. At least one of them wants to hug me. :)

Mine are 7 and 9, and time has flown. *sigh*

Beautiful daughter, btw.

Wow what a pretty girl. I love having a daughter, don't you? Such an awesome bond.

Jennifer said...

Aww! What a sweet post. Makes me want to go grab my kids and squeeze them! It is so hard to get anything done with them this age that I get so frustrated and forget to cherish the gifts that they are.
