Two Years Ago
This photo was taken in 2005. My darling mother-in-law made these fall outfits for the cuties. She is a saint. That has not changed. Jake enjoyed making goofy faces. That has not changed either.
Em was sporting her "I-did-it-myself" pixie 'do. She went through an intensive six-month independent study barbering course. Actually I think she did Jake's too. Thankfully that has changed. Now she has enrolled in the "Customize Your White-Painted Furniture with Black Sharpie" home decorating course.
Luke was looking sad because I had taken away his blankie for the photo. The blankie-love has not changed either. Actually it seems to have become more intense as the blanket gets greyer and smellier.
Sam was holding his leg straight because he had just finished wearing a full-length cast for six weeks. He had broken his femur and wore a bright blue spica-type plaster thing all along his leg and around his stomach. Of course, he was not potty-trained at this point which meant that the whole thing was an E-coli breeding ground. Thankfully, this has changed, too.
Sometimes you need to look back to realize how far you have come...and that you never want to go back again!
