I can’t believe this was only a year ago… it feels like it was forEVER ago!
Tadpole seems to have grown up so much in the past 12 months. He was my baby… and now he’s a Big Brother. Crazy.
This snapshot was taken while he snacked on a Ritz cracker shortly after one of his many fights with the garden hose last Summer.
It’s getting to be that time again… almost time to take maternity photos of our growing family. A friend was asking about “Slapshot”‘s photos the other day and I realised that I’d never posted them here on the blog. What better day than a Flashback Friday? Here are a few of my favorites – all taken by Grumpy back in November of 2007.
I was talking with Winnie yesterday and we somehow got on the topic of BRAND newborn babies… and how most of them look sorta like aliens and have a face that only their parents could love. haha. I told her that, of course, when my little Tadpole arrived he was the cutest little thing ever and didn’t look like an alien at all! Which I assume is what most parents say. haha. I told her I’d share his very first photo on my blog as today’s flashback… I’ve converted it to black&white because the purple-alien-skin might be a bit too frigthening for the masses ;)
Ahhh… my shrieking, perfect, purple little Tadpole…. just minutes old… and still just as cute as I remember thru my teary-eyed, blurred vision :)
Earlier this week, I found out that our good friends, M&M, are moving “home” to Victoria in a few months. I’m so excited! We’ve missed them so much since they moved to Penticton in 2008. In honor of the good news, here’s a pic of one of the M’s with a month old little Tadpole.
Now that the terrible two’s have arrived, we see a face similar to this on an almost daily basis… except lately it’s quickly followed by a spaz. Fun times. I hope we’re nearing the end of it by the time Noodle arrives this summer!
(Don’t you just want to pinch those adorable chubby little cheeks!?)
It was LG’s birthday yesterday… his 19th birthday. Seriously? He’s legal? Oh man… I’m gettin too old for this!
In honor of his big day, here’s a flashback to last Halloween… Tadpole as a bat, and LG as Dragonball Z…
Happy Birthday LG!
A quick snapshot of Baba & his Mama, and Tadpole (who’s clearly filling his diaper in this photo) & his Mummy. Can you believe Baba will be TWO on Saturday? And he’s already a big brother!! Such a happy little growing family :)
While he sure has grown up and changed a whole lot – the one thing that’s remained the same is that grin….
I had a day off work on Monday, so I took the Tadpole on a play-date to Duck and Bubba’s house. As I was trying to decide which Flashback image to post today, I ran across this one of Tadpole and Bubba on their first ever camping trip and couldn’t resist sharing it.
Happy Birthday Papa!
Papa’s away for work right now, so Tadpole can’t sing the Happy Birthday song for him. This flash back will just have to do instead. I love the way they’re grinning at each other… not sure which of them thinks the other is more funny (looking :P )
