A little bit nothing in particular

It's rainy and gloomy here today. Addie and I are going full speed ahead on getting the house ready for Gramma Kathy's visit - scrubbing floors, baseboards, and bathrooms. Dusting, vacuuming, washing every reachable surface. The washing machine and dryer are already buzzing and Sesame Street is going to do a little "baby sitting today".
I was browsing through our old photos and this is a picture of this exact day, a year ago.

Looking at this picture makes me think about how much life changes in a year.
Elise is now probably a foot taller and losing her "babiness". She goes to school 3 days a week, can tell me all her about her best friends and has an endlessly impressive vocabulary.
Addie's hair can now go in a pony tail. She's in school one day a week and never stops talking from the time she gets up until the time she's tucked in - she's got ideas and thoughts and opinions.
And Genna? Well her lap is a little more crowded, as it is occupied with Elise's eight week old baby brother Liam.

Amazing the difference a year makes.

Look at all those beautiful faces. I bet that in a year they will still be beautiful.
