Seven Years Has Come So Fast

By Meghan Gesswein |

As Dylan’s 7th birthday quickly approaches, I’ve found myself wondering (repeatedly) where all the time has gone. When you’re a kid seven years seems like an eternity, but as a parent I can safely say that the past seven years have gone by in the blink of an eye.

With Zach approaching Kindergarten and Oliver acting less and less like a baby every day, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately going through old photos to remind myself about what they were like as “little” kids.

It was interesting to look at my photo albums from the beginning of the year from 2005 until now to see how different our lives, and the children, have become, but also how much they’ve stayed the same. They won’t be my babies forever, but it’s so much fun to watch them grow up that I’m okay with that. I might just have to put together a slideshow retrospective of years gone by every once and a while to remind me what life used to be like.

You can see what February has been like for us over the years in the slideshow below!

Kids Grow Up So Fast - A Look Back Through The Years

February 2005

At almost 32 weeks pregnant, I look thrilled to be taking this photo, don't I? It's nice that I got so dressed up for the occasion. Baby Dylan would be making his appearance in 6 short weeks.

    I love them.

    I can’t believe you looked that good at 32 weeks! I looked like I was about to explode. Probably had something to do with my almost 10 lb baby that came 9 days late…

      @Elle – He arrived 17 days early at 6 1/2 lbs…10lbs sounds terrifying! ;0)
