Like a Weed - Four Year Edition

It's been four years since I started taking pictures of the kids with the growth chart.  I may be tooting my own horn, but I'm just so glad I've been doing this!

Major Bedhead warning!  (We take most of our pictures at breakfast.)

I love how much of their personalities you captured too!

I could never do this- just because I like to be in denial about how fast my babies are growing!

This is really weird! I just did the embed / share thing from youtube, but when I just watched it here, it cut off about 3/4 of the way through, but if you watch it on youtube, it's all there. Weird.

Anyway. I only have a couple of rules about how they take their pictures. They have to be standing flat footed, heels (or toes sometimes) up against the wall, on the piece of tape that's been on my floor for 4 years. And they have to stand up straight. Other than that, I let them pose pretty much however they want. The boys nearly always bring some silly prop and make a face, but I figure it gives them character, and shows them as they really are. My mom told me that I should get a shot or two of them all dressed up for church sometime. I think she gets tired of seeing only bed head. However, I told her that that is just about impossible because the exact second we are all ready to go to church, we are literally running out the door, and nearly always late. Oh well. Bed head it is.
