THIS was last year...

A year later, and look what happens...!

It's never ceases to amaze me the growth and change that happens in a YEAR in the life of a child, mine or others. Yes, I tend to favor a small walk down memory lane now-a-days, but seeing the growth, the change, the mastery with which kids tackle life and all they teach us leaves me at a loss for words (Ha, not to mention adding a whole new PERSON to the mix!). I'm so blessed to BE a parent and be able to take it all in, for better (awesome trip up to the pumpkin patch up North) or worse (coming home w/ a badly sunburned baby :( and a toddler w/ a pus-filled finger)! Ha! Here's to next year's pumpkin journey & the leaps & bounds with which they'll grow between now & next October!

Halloween Who's Who?

It's funny ~ having a boy & a girl many have commented that they look NOTHING like each other...though these aren't EXACTLY the same, I've tried to catch some of the same shots with them in/on the same things to compare at each age/stage...and the likeness is, I think, startling! Ha ~ some genes, huh?!?! :)

The Waiting Game

Where we were a month ago:

Where sweet baby E is today:

You can barely make out the scars on her right heel, and if you didn't KNOW it was her right arm, it looks almost normal...the waiting game of 6-12 months is maddening, but I'm looking forward to her first return visit to OT tomorrow to measure the progress she's had thus far (even though the neuro said we won't see progress 'til a minimum of 3 months out). Fingers crossed and hopefully this surgery will be all she needs!
