Now and Then

Anyone care to share pics of your LOs? Since E's birthday is coming up in 10 days I have been having fun making these little "now and then" side-by-side photos. I can't believe how much she's changed!

I was planning on doing this on her Bday. I just love that one with the swing. Smile

Adorable! She's grown up so much!

I might put one up when I figure out photobucket again. DH doesn't want me to even put pics on facebook so it will likely only up for a short time.

Not to highjack this thread, but I did want to say that I probably won't be sharing pics on here. Not because I don't trust you ladies, but because this is public forum with lots of lurkers (I was once a lurker too :)). Someone mentioned on another board that they found images she had posted here of herself and baby when she did an internet search just using her username. I found some pics of DS when I did a search, it was kind of unsettling. And I ended up deleting images from previous threads. Anyway, just wanted to let you know in case you wonder why I don't share pictures anymore. Maybe I'll just post them briefly to share with you like Elle said. Or maybe I can draw some renderings of DS and events to post Smile But I don't want rain on anyone's photo sharing fun...I'm just paranoid about stuff like that, I don't even have a facebook page.

Carrie - you've inspired me to make photo progression mini posters to hang up on the wall for DS's party. I made four: 1) side by side family pictures of me, DH, & DS at about a week old, then of us taken the end of this past November (caption "Our Family...We have come a long way since our early Christmas surprise"), 2) photo progression of DS's ultrasound pictures ("We watched you grow"), 3) photo progression of my pregnant belly ("We watched mommy grow"), 4) photo progression of DS starting at newborn with new photo for each month ("You have changed so much!) the very last photo being his santa photo with DS wailing (side caption "Well, maybe not so much...) Smile

This is SO adorable! I am not normally a weepy person but celebrating our baby`s first birthday is turning me into mush!

Christina, those posters sound so cute! I am planning to order prints, one for each month of the first year, and then hang the progression of photos with mini clothespins, another idea I stole from Pinterest. Smile

I know what you mean about it being a very sentimental time. It feels like such a milestone for DH and I as parents too, thinking about how far we have come to this point: we couldn't get pregnant, then losing my dad, then getting pregnant, then the rough days/nights of screamy newborn, and now this little guy and I are really settling into the roles of son and mom. This seemed like such a far off point and now it's here and it's bringing with it so many emotions for me. I feel so happy and sad.

This got me curious so I did a google image search of my username and a few pictures did come up. Claire's newborn from forever ago and some of me babywearing her that my friend posted in the babywearing forum but what was really weird is that the two Carrie posted that started this thread showed up!

I've been really slow sharing these because I couldn't get my photobucket to work (And I still can't figure out how to make them a better size Beee ) but here is a comparison of Claire from her newborn pics and her bday.

Love how photobucket made me a liar. When I previewed it they were huge. Today they are the size I wanted. @@
