My blog celebrates 7 years in April. When I started blogging, our family was smaller and the kids looked like this:
Owen (19 months), Maddie (3.5), and Gavin (5)
Some years I've blogged a family photo with all its joyful imperfections-- the frowns, the squints, the looking away, the baskets on the heads (um, yeah) ...
Benjamin (3.5), Owen (5.5), Alaine (19 months, Maddie (7.5), and Gavin (9)
Owen (6.5), Benjamin (4.5), Gavin (10), Maddie (8.5), and Alaine (2.5)
Owen (7.5), Alaine (3.5), Benjamin (5.5), Gavin, (11), and Maddie (9.5)
This year we have noticed great change in some of the kids-- not the average growth that occurs in a typical year, but a more dramatic change in appearance and maturity.
Maddie (11.5), Alaine (4.5), Owen (8.5), Benjamin (6.5), and Gavin (12)
Have I mentioned I'll have a teenager before the year is complete?
