See it Snap it Love it: Growing

I recently had the opportunity to hold a new baby in my hands. How quickly I have forgotten what it felt like to hold my wee man that way now that he wiggles and squirms his way out of my arms. It seems impossible sometimes that there was a time he was not able to walk and get himself into mischief. There has been so much growing going on around here that it's been difficult to think of a way to capture it in just one moment. Most parents do something though don't they to chart the growth and change. Whether it's hand prints or footprints, the pencil marks against the wall  there is usually a record for us to treasure how quickly they grow and change. Here is a little piece of ours....

    1. I have actually got more recent ones...but decided only to give you all a taster! I have not tried it since he has been walking...wonder if he would keep still long enough!

    I've got Laila and Max's hand and footprints on canvas from when they were 6 weeks old and 6 months old. Plan to do it again when they're 6 years old!!

  8. Baby feet are so scrummy. And it's so cool to think that they'll grow that big, the human body is just so clever.
    Thanks for linking up. x

    1. Oh I love tickling and nibbling on his feet...he's funny as sometimes he lies down and sticks them in my face :) We have to take a more recent one to really see how they have grown. Really enjoying this linky, thanks for hosting x
