Having babies is definitely bittersweet experience. It's so easy to get wrapped up in our busy lives and miss truly enjoying the fleeting moments we have with our children. I've never been great at documenting their childhoods (I think I've only written a handful of things in the older 3's baby books...and haven't even opened Nix's.) and I'm recognizing now that I should really take more pictures and write down things they do. Time goes so quickly and it's so hard to remember the little moments. In fact, I decided to show how our family has changed since our first Halloween with Hannah in 2006...and can't find a picture I can see perfectly in my mind (of Pumpkin Hannah in my mom's kitchen cabinet!) on any of our computers! I will have to update this post with that picture when I can find it!
Here are our Halloweens, year by year:
Hannah~ 23 months, Avery~1 month
Hannah~ Almost 3, Avery~ 1
Hannah~ Almost 4, Avery~ 2
Hannah~Almost 5, Avery~ 3, Noah~ 4 months

Hannah~ Almost 7, Avery~ 5, Noah~ 2, Phoenix~ 1.5 months
Love my babies!
