Then and Now
Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #12
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a comment here before ?/?/07. This is an open-ended challenge. I love seeing the before and after pics of the beautiful kids so please continue to share your link in the comment section.
This week's photo challenge is "Then and Now". Post your child's referral photo then post a current photo next to it. Here's the challenge: Don't just post any current photo, attempt to match the clothing, background and pose of the referral photo!
If you've not gotten your referral yet, post a "Then and Now" photo of anything (or anyone) special to you).
This, of course, is Gwendolyn. When we got her referral in July of last year, we were momentarily disappointed that she was already 14 months old. But we now know that she had plenty of "baby" left in her (more than Mommy actually needed!).
Maddy's referral photos were taken at the same time as Gwen's (Jun 2005) even though we didn't get her until nearly one full year later. The similarities are pretty amazing. Both girls had the usual mug shot but they also had very similar sitting and standing photos. Then there's the very amazing coincidence that they both had the same Chinese first name.
Maddy is Wicked Smart. She's potty trained and skilled at transferring liquid from one small object to another (something she LOVES to do!). We joke that she's going to be a Chemist! She's verbal (and loud) and really opinionated. She's definitely not mellow like her sister, Gwen. But her spunk is very endearing. She's our precious little parrot who delights in repeating everything we say and loves to please us. She's incredibly athletic and can throw a ball with the accuracy of someone 6 times her age!
