Sparks are flying around the blogosphere again today, as we join in with Alyce, At Home With Books, to showcase our Saturday Snapshots.

Here we are, already finished with Week One of 2012.  I hope everyone is having a good one!

Two days ago, my youngest grandson had his ninth birthday, which made me think of birthdays past, as well as this one.

Here he is on his First Birthday, followed by a photo of him now at age nine.


This current photo wasn’t taken with birthday cake…that will come this weekend.  But he gives us a glimpse of how much he has changed….


What are the rest of you sharing today?  I can’t wait to find out!


    1. Yes, despite “losing” the curls along the way, before this third birthday, he managed to keep his charm.

      I really miss the curls, but the nine-year-old is a lot of fun.

      Thanks for stopping by, Kay.


  1. I agree that the curls are beautiful, but boys disdain that adorable look. Keep enjoying him because he might grown into a sullen teenager, like my boys are sometimes. I’m waiting for them to come out on the other side of that. Here’s Mine


    1. Ah, yes, my youngest son had those same kind of curls as a baby and toddler; and he did turn into a surly teen. It seemed to go on and on…sigh.

      I think the reason babies are so cute is to sustain us with those memories during the difficult years…lol

      Thanks for stopping by, Paulita.


  2. I don’t know — that second photo looks like he’s already trying for teenager! But if he gets too sullen, you can pull out the pics of him with a mop of golden curls.


    1. Thanks, Irene…I can’t believe it was nine years ago we saw him as a newborn. It was a Sunday, and we were there for several hours before he finally arrived, via C-section.

      Glad you could stop by, and enjoy your weekend.


    1. His mother (my daughter) had curly hair as a toddler…and so did his cousin Fiona.

      Now it’s short, but he’s growing it out a little bit. When it grows, you can see the wave that’s still there.

      Thanks for stopping by, Alyce.


  3. They change so much in those early years. My husband has hair like that, soft curls. Your grandson may want to grow those curls out someday… the girls love it. Or so my husband tells me!


    1. I keep hoping he will, Leslie. My youngest son had curls, too, and when it’s long, it’s wavy; he tends to keep it short.

      Maybe Noah can be persuaded to grow it long some day…lol

      Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend.


    1. No, his curls don’t show when his hair is short…he is growing it out a bit, though, and there are little “bumps” or waves that could turn into curls.

      Thanks for stopping by, Cat; I totally agree about the passage of time.


    1. Thanks, Nise…I wish he’d had them for a few years, but his parents didn’t like the comments, like “oh, what a pretty little girl,” so they cut it.

      Glad you could stop by, and have a great weekend. I just had Mexican food with Noah and my daughter (his choice). Around the corner from where I live is a really good Mexican restaurant.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
