    Feels like yesterday I took this picture of my son Oliver pretending to be me with my camera and his little brother Philip pretending to be Oliver:


    Here they are today:

    Oliver starts middle school in a week. Where does the time go?

    And when do they learn to sit on furniture correctly?

    I have an 8 month old baby and an almost 4 year old girl. I'm tired, sleepy and cranky most the time! You parents with older kids actually miss that? :tongue: :biggrin:

    Same situation as you are. The 10 month old doesn't sleep and the 4 year old has more meltdowns now that when he was 2. One is a whiner and the other a shouter :)

    It helps that they are cute, and it gives me a subject to photograph :)

    I really should take more shots of them when they are not all cute and smiley or asleep so they can see how they could be!

    I'm not sure when I will have the time to edit, sort, print, and publish the last year of photos that grandma keeps asking for!

    Actually it is not that bad, but sometimes it is :)

    Haha, I feel you! My wife is asking when I'm going to get around to printing some kid photos as well.

    My daughter's b-day is coming up this week. I'm seriously tempted to just shoot it in film so I'm force to make prints. :biggrin:
