One Year, New Shoes

Last year, I posted these photos of Patrick's new shoes:

This year I'll post these photos of Patrick's new shoes:

Darn him.  I love this age so much.  He is so sweet.  He is still such a baby.  But he is getting slimmer and stretching out to the sky.  His arms are losing their rubberband fatness and his cheeks are slimming down.  (Both sets.)  What will change next year?  I don't even want to imagine.

  2. Ugh I know! When those little pop-it-bead arms go away it is so sad....my sweet Caroline (my 3rd) is 10 months old already and I'm already craving another precious baby to hold! :-0 I think I'll wait close to another year before having another...is there ever a time that I won't want another child? I'm just crazy, madly in love with my babies and I'm struggling with the concept of saying "we're done!" Help! :o)

  6. Oh my! This gives me a preview of what my little Carter will look like in a year. He is 16 months now and I adore his fat baby cheeks so much! I have a thing for his little shoes - we lost one yesterday, and I actually cried =( Love the pictures!

  8. Oh, look at that little chunk of love! I think my little chunk of love is almost exactly a year younger than your boy, so he resembles that first photo quite a bit. I just can't believe this time next year he'll be photo #2...no I can not believe it! I love having a toddler baby around the house, they are so much fun! Alas, he is my last little one. I am in no hurry for #4 to grow up! Enjoy those new kicks big boy! :)

  11. It's funny how you revel in a certain stage, and how quickly it passes.
    Sigh.
    I now see why our grandmothers used to bronze baby shoes.
    Sigh.

  15. I love these pics! New shoes are the best! My little guy is stretching out too--I think he burns all of his calories climbing and running and jumping and turning everything on and off--no more baby fat!
