Flashback Friday: Elie's Toddler Years Part 1

Friday, July 16, 2010

I've got brownies in the oven, fresh baked bread on the counter waiting to be sliced, both babies are upstairs asleep in their beds, Christopher is away at work, and again- I find myself completely lost in a whirlpool of Eleanore's toddler pictures. The more I look at them, the easier it is for the memories to break down barriers and come rushing back...

Her first frozen waffle. Whispy hair, a ruffle butt one piece outfit, those big gorgeous blue eyes... and a frozen waffle.

Her first trip to the zoo. She wore a handmade owl onesie (thank you Aunt Steph), she posed for picture after picture, and she watched and observe a whole new world of animal friends.

Her second Thanksgiving (her first one awake). She made herself right at home, in the tupperware cabinet, while Mommy and Daddy spent all day cooking. And, it was the first time watching snow fall.

If you're new to Flashback Friday, don't be shy! Heres how we do it-

Grab an old photo (or if you're like me, a bazillion), write a little bit about it, and link up! We love love love to invade your personal Polaroid history, so don't be shy, post your photo, and expect a lot of comments starting with "awwwwww". Unless its a sad post, and then... well those might start with "awww" too. I swear, most weeks I cry at half of your flashbacks (I know, I'm pregnant, so-). Anyways- (please please) don't forget to either text link back to this post, or grab one of our buttons from down below.

I was frustrated for about two seconds after she spilled the crumbs, but it was pretty funny, lol. And now I have pictures...

Thanks so much for the chance to share my photo, as soon as I found it I was sooo excited and thought of FF. Have a great Friday :)

Toddler pics are so fun to look back at. They look more grown up, but you can still see the baby in them. Such cute pics. She looks like a little doll :)

Those pictures are wonderful! I love her zoo pics and the snow out the window! So, so sweet!

I love seeing how they change! I had to pull out baby/toddler pics a couple days ago (after Charlies haircut post) and I spent hours looking through my box ... you're so right, the picture pulls the memories to the surface!!!

Hmmm. I'd have to say Ellie takes more after Chris, and Charlie after you....but then there are those shots where it's just like: whoa. That is sooooo "".
Makes for ultra-cuteness. ;)
