The end of summer

At the beginning of summer I was just returning to work after maternity leave. We were still trying to find our rhythm as a family of five. That was so long ago.

Find the tiny baby in this post-partum picture.

At the end of summer, E had learned to ride a bike.

Not looking back.

L has graduated from diapers to pull-ups to underpants.
She hides from something scary as her sister tells a story.

G has learned to crawl. He went from cuddly lump to ground-level Godzilla.
His shirt says 100% SWEET, and he is, if you overlook his teething on the step, because if you factor that in he probably tastes like sawdust.

They're such different people after only three months. What a fun summer it's been. Pin It

It's amazing how quickly our lives change, even against the freeze-frame of our daily routines. I'm happy all your changes have happened so beautifully and so well.

Okay you need to come to my house to potty training...I need help. You have a really sweet family and you seem so happy. I'm happy for you all.

Okay....I seriously had to look to see the baby in the sling. LOL! I know how you feel. I was putting shorts on the tot yesterday and they are now above his knee. All I could think was "wow....when the summer started, they were almost to his ankles!"
Love the photos!

I was just looking at the pictures from our vacation back in February and realizing how much my children are not those kids any more. It is unbelievable how quickly we change, them and us and the whole world all together.
