I recently was going through all of my photos from the last year to print some for another photo garland for Pearce's birthday party. It was a fun little trip down memory lane. These stood out, probably because I'm missing Seattle/Washington, and it blows my mind how much babies and little children grow up so fast. I remember these were taken at Gas Works Park after her 18 month check-up. She has grown up/developed SO MUCH in just the past 6 months. I was chatting with Jeremy the other day, trying to explain that it's interesting how people in general change/mold/grow, etc... and that in the 7.5 years I've known Jeremy that he's changed/evolved/grown and I feel I have, too. But then I think about Pearce and how much a baby changes in just TWO years, and it's really an incredible thing.
She still has kind of a baby face in these pictures, and definitely looks like a little toddler. But I look at her today and I'm seeing more of a "little girl".
I always love looking at photos as soon as I take them. I usually am so anxious to see what I snapped as soon as I'm done, and have them uploaded to the computer the same day. But, being able to LOOK BACK, is even better. It's priceless. Happy Memories.
