Throw Back

Being the slacker laid back mom that I am, when I put new pictures in a frame, I leave the old ones behind the new picture.  When I take the backs off the frames, sometimes 10 photos fall out on top of me.  It's always like a stroll down memory lane.  I had a couple of frames that I wrapped up years ago and last night I pulled them out.  When I opened the backs two pictures fell out and nostalgia just rushed over me.

It's weird how time and perspective change so much.  The first one is of Sadie and Noah when Noah was about 18 months old.  I thought life with two kids was soooooo hard.  Now, when I look at that photo it seems like the golden age.  These two have always had such a loving bond.  It just makes me smile to watch them together.  This picture was taken on a beach in Florida and that vacation will always be one of my favorites that we've ever taken.

And then there is this one of the first Easter after Miles came home.  He had only been with us for about 6 weeks when this picture was taken.  He looks so tiny and his little eyes were so droopy (pre-eye surgery).  Sadie has always thought that she was the little mama of Miles and her hands on his shoulders just seem so fitting of the way that she steers him through life. And then there's Noah- just off to the side and giggling like Noah always is.

I don't do it very often, but sometimes it's so fun to look back and see how such key elements of their personalities were present from the very start. And crazy to watch how they grow and change so quickly.  Sometimes it just feels like it just rushes by...

Still entirely too cute...
And today feeling especially precious to me.
