grow old with me! the best is yet to be!

a friend of mine has offered to make joel and me a wedding video, so i am currently scanning through the ages to transfer my childhood from 4x6 to .jpg. it's got me feeling all maternal about myself, because I AM CUTE! look at how cute i am!

see? cute! and here i am, with a little peek-a-boo belly! a cute one!

and this is me on the phone! so cute on the phone! i have kneesocks! (this is before kneesocks became trendy and whorish)!

and i am covered with sand! and SO pleased about it! and cute!

and wearing giant sunglasses! and cute!


and then i came back to my computer after a long night of scanning cute little me into the other computer, and somewhere between here and there, i grewed up!

it gave me something of a shock to see myself, all adult-like, with a fiance growing out of my temple, after hours of tiny, helpless, funny me. is this what parenting is, having them leap through twenty years while you're busy boiling water?

how terrifying.

My son, Ian, is turning 4 next month and last night we watched baby video of him. It feels like a lifetime ago but also just like yesturday. so yes, that's what it feels like to be a parent :)
