While we don’t post them here like we used to, we have continued to take pictures of Eli with his lion every 3 months this year. My husband, surprisingly, is the one who insists upon this, and I happily oblige because it’s fun to watch Eli change and grow and I know some day I’m going to treasure these pictures even more.
When he was tiny, the changes each month were so big and so obvious. Now that he’s a lot bigger, they are more subtle, but every bit as significant. Where there used to be a few hints of toddlerhood left, now there is a little boy, through and through. My heart, right there in a chair.
He’s just a full grown kid now. I can’t hardly believe it, but I sure am enjoying it.
