And Then There Were Two

I love hanging photos of my children throughout my home. And I love doing it in groupings. I have all their four month photos in the kitchen, their eight month photos in the family room, and their one year photos going up the stairs. This past weekend, Steve hung another photo.

We hung my Peyton Rose's Graduation photo on the wall, next to my Madison.
Looking at these two beautiful young women makes me proud. Very proud. It also makes me ache a bit for the two adorable little girls who giggled as they played Barbies and watched Arthur together after school. 

It seems as if we just took little Peyton to get her one year picture taken at Sears Portrait Studio. She did not think it was awesome, and cried rather loudly until Steve found a white bouncy ball, which she insisted on holding while we got the cutest picture ever.

It seems as if we just walked my brave little Peyton into her Kindergarten class and waved as she gave us her sweet little smile and went on her way.

 Years pass. Children grow. 
 We hang more photos on the wall, commemorating these major milestones in our children's lives.
And it is good.

  4. It is good. And they are beautiful. Peyton, from what I know from your blog, has grown into such a wonderful baker, sister and friend. Plus graduating early? Wow! You are blessed indeed!

  5. Watching them grow is bittersweet. My heart burst with pride at the young lady my daughter is becoming and aches for the little girl that she once was. It is good!
