Then and Now

Exactly one year ago, I took Landon to a small, relatively quiet section of beach and took pictures.  On Friday, I did it again.  In one year’s time, my baby has grown into a toddler brimming with personality and joy.  He is sweetness personified.  And he is growing up much too fast…

THEN - He was 7 months old and enjoyed immensely the taste of sand.

NOW - He's not too fond of the sand, particularly when it lands in his mouth.

NOW - He's 19 months and he's not too fond of the sand, particularly when it lands in his mouth.

THEN - He was still immobile.  He hadn't even begun crawling.

NOW - He can walk...

Run...

Run...

And wave hi to the passing tractor.

THEN - He enjoyed showing a little crack at the beach.

NOW - Well, thankfully not everything has changed!

THEN - He was funny, sweet and brimming with personality.

NOW - That personality is (loudly) showing up in a thousand different expressions.

Whether THEN or NOW, the fact remains…
He is one handsome little boy.
