Christmas picture outakes!

But first, I went back to December of 2007 here on my blog to look at my Christmas pictures from last year and came across Ella's 15 month well baby checkup where she measured in at 30 inches, which is also her current height. Can that be true? Can a kid not grow for an entire year???? Now I know that there can be some differences in the way people measure, but still. Ella is currently sporting some size 9 month pants and they are not at all too short, (possibly they were big for 9 months? hopefully..)
By the time Hunter got home from school and I got them ready
it was 4 and obviously dark though it did not seem this dark in

Ella was not

So we took it
After my patience were completly shot I gave up for the night.
The next morning before Ella goes to school..
Notice Hunter's
hand around her neck?
Don't they look
so grown up?
Whew, this is how
I felt too Hunter!
Here is a few from
last year
I just wanted to take a second to thank you all for your kind comments to my previous post. It is so nice to know that I'm not the only one that feels this way and has these issues!!! Thank you!!

Love the pics! Their expressions are priceless! The winner turned out great! I just cant get over how fast her hair has grown! She is so beautiful! I love the outside pics. Wasnt it cold? They dont have on jackets! I think I see a little of my brother in her in the winning pic, especially with that hair color! It is just amazing to me how long it is. I wish Shay's hair grew like that!!! Love ya's--Aunt Tami

SO cute! I loved the winner one too, but I liked the one where Hunter's hand is on her neck. Wish we could be together soon!

I just read your other post and I understand where you are coming from. Even though we adopted Addy, specifically choosing a child with DS I get the same feelings sometimes. Addy is 2 years, 2 months old. She doesn't crawl, stand, or speak. She does babble but that's it. We think she has said baby but hasn't done it again. She has a few signs she uses, but if she learns a new one, the old one is no where to be seen again. I get sad to think that when she starts preschool she won't be walking or talking, but then I remember that her life has been so hard for her. Her health had been the pits for the first 1 1/2 years, so I just focus on all that she can do and look forward to what she will do someday. Ella is so beautiful and looks to be so spunky! You are a wonderful mom and she is blessed to have you.

I can't believe how much they have both grown up in the last year. Hunter looks like a lil man now and Ella has definatley turned into a toddler no more baby stuff for her.

I'm telling you that who ever measures your girl at 30 inches now is off. Lets go with my Dr.'s measurements at 33 inches since the kids are pretty much the same height. 2 year olds can grow 3 inches in a year right?

My little man is 5 months old and still in 0-3 months!! I look at it like this...we always want the babies to stay babies for longer...well we get to! (at least size wise) The pictures are great! Your kids are the cutest ever!
