Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I’m back with another Slice of Life Post, and today I’m talking about my kids. You see, my oldest will graduate fifth grade this year and it’s a tradition for the parents to organize a big party for them.
One of the parents volunteered to put together a slide presentation of the kids with snapshots from previous years, and she also wanted a baby picture of each graduate. I thought this was an awesome idea.
So, this weekend I went through our pictures. It was a walk down memory lane. It was so precious. I had so many pictures. I think I got almost every toothless smile my firstborn gave. I got his first graham cracker, his first tooth, and his first lost tooth. He grew and changed before my eyes, and I remember he had the sweetest disposition. He still does.
I remember how my firstborn wouldn’t eat baby food. He wanted to eat what we were eating. It brought back those memories of making mashed potatoes, mushing up bananas, and grinding up carrots.
Looking at those pictures, I realized how much my little guy has grown. He’s almost as tall as me. He has my eyes and a wacky sense of humor, and he’s kind. Both of my boys are. I love that about them.
I’m so glad I took so many pictures. There were photos of my two boys playing together, already developing that sibling bond. They’re very close now. In fact, when one of my firstborn’s friends invites him to spend the night they almost always include my youngest, too.
I love that about my son’s friends. That’s such an awesome testament to their parents and the kids themselves. I’m looking forward to this summer when we can make more memories and take more pictures. 🙂

****Just an FYI, I’ll be doing a post about my youngest next year when he’s a fifth grader. I’m not playing favorites! 😉

What an adorable boy! I just wrote today about my oldest getting ready for kindergarten. I know in a blink he will be graduating 5th grade, too. I also take a lot of pictures. Cell phones have made it so easy to capture so many moments. Pictures make me happy! I hope the slideshow comes out really special!
Thanks Kathleen! I appreciate your kind words. Pictures make me happy, too. It was such a joyful feeling going back through them and remembering all those special moments. 🙂
You have raised some lovely young men. I can imagine how the kids will react when they see their baby pictures, along with more recent shots, in the slide show.
Thanks Adrienne! I’m excited about the slideshow and a little sad. They grow up so fast. sniff.
What a loving post about your son and that second picture should be entered into a contest. TOO CUTE.
Thanks Bernadette! I think so, too, but I’m a little biased! 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
I loved this post, so filled with love for both your sons. The photos are great too.
