Just a little blast to the past

I was searching through my photo archives yesterday to find pictures of some furniture we're selling on Craigslist, and died over all of the old photos of my girls. I'll remember things like they were yesterday but then see that Mila (especially) was a completely different KID! A lot happens in those first few years.

I still remember this photo. We were at Byron and Kim's house and Mila got sick and had been throwing up. Her big sister wanted to comfort her. Nothing's changed there.

But I can't believe that in such a short time, she's gone from that spiky-haired baby (Papa called her "chief" in honor of her mohawk) to the most snugly, verbal, loving little 2-year old ever. She learns it all from her big sis, but last night, while eating pizza at Costco, she kept standing on the bench, wrapping her arms around my neck, snuggling her pizza-smeared cheek against mine saying "you're the best mommy EVER... I lujou.." (how to spell her pronunciation... it sounds like a blend of love-you and ajou- like the sandwich dipping sauce) "so much mommy-- I lujou so much!"

I think I'd choose right now. If I could pick a time to hit pause--- I'd choose right now. Life is really sweet.

:) I've always loved mila's look. but you're right, with hair and vocabulary, it's like she's a totally different little lady.

and about your house. sold. I'm moving in.

and I've got to show you Amy Butler's recent gig of transferring her prints (like the one on your chair) to RUGS. RUGS! my dream come true.

and you. you're my dream come true. :) not to weird you out or anything. I'm already moving into your house, so I might as well go all out, right?

That's a great picture of the girls. It's amazing how quickly they change.

By the way, check out Irene's blog. There is a cool pic of the cake she made for Lacy.
