Best Shot Monday - Straight Out of the Camera

This picture popped up in my computer slide show this weekend. I opened it and kept it up all weeken've left it there are look at it.

It amazes me. So I went to he folder where this picture resides. I had forgotten about these pictures.

It was right after his first haircut. But the little curls grew back one more time.

He was 15 months when we moved into this house. Still so tiny then...

How did he go from this...



To this?
Oh, I just love this boy with every part of my being. He is amazing. Spirited. Bright. Outspoken. Independent. Loving. Smart. Beautiful. Gentle. Stubborn. Talkative. Contemplative. Funny. Loud. Full of kisses. Comic. Fierce. Needing. Respectful. Polite. Brave. Energetic. Complex. He helped me rediscover myself.

And in less than four short months he is going to be four years old.


Did I blink?

Maddy said...

Yes, it's true what they say, over in the blink of an eye. I actually have a lot of my old digital photos on one of those digital photo frames so that they roll over to remind me - now that was a great gift.
Best wishes

Oh man. They do grow so fast. If you figure out how to freeze time, please let me know. I would like to get in on that.

Oh he's so cute - grown so much - what a handsome little guy!

I feel that blinking feeling everyday.

Oh my goodness, I think I just blinked, too. My Will is nearly 4 and a half, and I am agog at what a big boy he is. TRYING NOT TO BLINK TODAY.

How cool to come across old shots that you didnt realize were there. I'm sure it brings back alot of feelings and memories...especially when they grow so fast!

Christina said...

Oh my goodness, it's little Harrison! So cute. I too am doing my best to keep from blinking.

OMG, how little and adorable!

Sadly, blinking is inevitable...we have to accept and immerse ourselves in each new phase of their lives, don't we?

I love his long hair.
