Then and Now

A year ago ...


Now:


A month ago ...


Now:


Four years ago ...


Now (well, two days ago, to be exact):



My house is a year old, my lawn is a week old, and my wee girl is four. All three are beautiful, high-maintenance, and a source of endless delight. Happy (belated) birthday, little Pie.

I love that painting by your front door. The lawn looks luscious, and Pie is such a cutie. Happy Birthday, Pie!

And congrats, Bea, on all your accomplishments.

What is it they say, the days are long and the years are short? I can barely remember my almost 3 y.o. as a baby. But it seems like my six month old has been around for FOREVER! And equally long since I have had a decent night's sleep.

Gwen said...

You are the prettiest post-birth mother ever. Congrats on all your milestones!

Debbie said...

That is so beautiful! Your home and yard look wonderful, and your little girl looks so sweet!

Mimi said...

Wow, you know, both those kids are really starting to look like you! And you are kinda glowing there with Pie!

Do you think we'll start an internet tidal wave of photos of grass?

Bea said...

Mimi - Everyone always remarks on how much she looks like her father, but when I look at those two photos side by side, I'm starting to see what you mean!

I had no idea Pie's birthday is so close to Isaac's! He'll be four tomorrow.

Happy birthday to Pie. She's adorable.

Oh, and the lawn isn't bad, either. ;)

MLD - The painting is called Pensee Musicale by Valerie Maugeri. I got it at Rural Roots.
