May 28th - Then & Now

I love seeing how much things can 
change in the quick span of a year.
Sometimes you need to see a picture
to really see how far you've come.

One of my favorite examples of this was Thanksgiving 2009
on which I realized that IUI #2 had failed and we started our 
13th cycle of trying to conceive Hannah, and Thanksgiving 2010:

From utter disappointment to extreme thankfulness in one short year.

Last year, May 28th, 2011, we were surrounded by family at the old farm house of Christopher's grandparents for Hannah's baptism.  They have this idyllic tire swing and a teeter totter made from old wagon wheels. 
Hannah had just started standing unassisted during this trip, and a few days after we got home she started walking.  

Today, May 28th, 2012, Hannah is full of energy and spunk and charisma.
She's learning how to hold conversations on the phone and spent quite a few hours talking with both sets of grandparents today.  She's also on an impressive streak of 30+ hours* without a wet diaper (*except 1 overnight diaper), which seems amazing.  She's so mature some times.
And then you tell her to do something she doesn't want to...
At the end of the day, I really like this toddler phase {so far}.
She had opinions, and thoughts, and feelings - and expresses them.

It's amazing how much changes in a year.


  1. Wow thats insane! Love when you compare pictures like this!

  2. Love this. We compared pictures of our oldest daughter on April 1st. Amazing how much things can change.

  3. She is so cute! Its amazing how fast they grow. Do you have any pictures of yourself at this age? That would be a cute comparison as well.
