I am a sucker for year-over-year studies of their pictures. (As you can see here and here.)
So, here are my babies. In front of the same tree, in the same corner of our home, ever since we started our family:
Ever since I became a mom, people have been telling me things like "They grow up before you know it..." and "Blink...and they're gone." I used to just smile and nod.
But now I see it for myself.
So now as I'm nodding and smiling...I try not to cry.
