N At Seven Months And E At Three Years Old

Quote Of The Day: Nothing Is Permanent

There is nothing permanent except change. –Heraclitus

I spent much of tonight comparing photos I took this week to the same week in 2009.  And I am blown away by my children and the extraordinary changes they’ve undergone. (Although I’m pretty sure E isn’t wearing pants in either shot.  Maybe next year?)

N is only seven months old and E is like SERIOUSLY MAMA. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

Photoshop the three cats into the picture and we’re FAMILY BABY.

I used to have a feature on my blog called quote of the day. But doing a quote and a post or a post on a quote every day became less realistic as I wanted to respond to comments, read your blogs, talk to you in real life, oh yeah, and PARENT. However, I love quotes and words and I may reinstitute it once a week. But still call it quote of the day. Because I’m annoying like that. Find the previous installments here.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. What great pictures! Alex, you have beautiful children. Thanks for sharing the pix and for reminding me of the miracles of growth and change. It’s such a gift to witness the transformations in these little people who grace our lives.

  2. Makes me wonder how one can question the presence of a God when witnessing the miraculous transformation of a child :)… Talk about resemblance – mini-me…Alex and Scott!

  3. Adorable! I find myself looking at pictures from a year ago and getting weepy at how much my babies are growing. Don’t even get me started about my attempts to get rid of baby clothes! Let’s just say that Space Bags saved the day. (As they so often do in our house.)

  4. Quote of the day, which we said yesterday in Sunday school should be put on a poster and hung on the wall:

    “Well, at least we got STARTED….” (We all like to talk a lot.)
