Every year on their birthday, I take my kids’ picture in one of Matt’s white dress shirts. I started doing this when Olivia was 2 and Gabe was 1 and I plan on doing it through their 18th birthday. I write them a letter on their birthday too (or a blog post) and I plan on making them each a book for graduation. It’s so fun to watch them grow. You can see below how much they’ve grown…and that my photo skills have gotten much better. And because I like to keep it real…I can’t find the ones from Matthew’s 1st birthday or from Olivia’s 7th and Gabe’s 6th. I’ve been looking all day and I can’t find them anywhere. Do you have a traditional picture that you take every year to show how they’ve grown?
It was weird this past birthday to see that Gabe could actually wear it as a…regular shirt. Won’t it be weird, and kind of cool, when the shirt is too small?
