Baby Gone ~ Sigh.

Two years ago... Baby Leif Benjamin was born.

Now the baby face is turning into a little boy face.

It's killing me. It really is.

It kills you to see them grow up.
But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.

I am SO with you. It kills me, too. Mine is going on three and is such a BOY. No baby left--except a little fat on the thighs!! :)
A great picture, too--love the various effects!!
I love babies and all things kid--so we're trying for #2! :) They change too fast!!

I love all the pictures and I'm so glad you're back! :) What program do you use to edit your photos?

Well, at least while you gaze upon his still adorable, but not-so-baby-anymore face ... you can imagine it with lots of different Boutwell actions applied to it!!

At least his feet still don't touch the ground ...

Amy~ I'm using Photoshop with Totally Rad Photoshop actions (and a few free Pioneer Woman action downloads here and there...). It is addicting, I tell ya...

skeller~ Now to figure out how to choose *one* action... ;-)

Wonderful photos! And that is a good quote.

I don't know how you could decide which photo! I love seeing how you play though with your pics.

I have no babies...but my boy still love their mommy and like to cuddle! That helps.

Hi Heidi

I will be where you are now in two years time. Blake is just over six weeks now. I relate to what you're saying though, as I see my little girl growing up so quickly.

The quote you included in this post is so true.

Aww, he's so precious. They grow up way too fast!

The pain is bittersweet. I know what you mean. He is so adorable!
