What started as an impromptu photo-shoot is now a McKinley family tradition. It’s the fourth year in a row that we’ve stood Louis next to that giant painted pumpkin and sized him up. It doesn’t look like his height has changed much but I promise it has – I think he had thick boots on last year when we went. Trust me, this kiddo never stops growing and I’m certain that he’s stretched out a few more inches. But holy cow, he looks older!!
And cheesier. It’s an extra year of having his parents constantly shoving a camera in his face so he sure knows how to find the camera a lot better. Goodness…comparison photos like these give me the chills. I *know* he’s getting older and bigger but this really puts things into perspective. [Please excuse me while I go cry for a few minutes. My baby!!!]
Don’t you just love that little cheeseball? And just because I’m feeling very ‘trip down memory lane-ish’…here are all four lined up next to each other. So funny how different the weather is from year to year, too. Yesterday was a scorching 80+ degrees outside which was obviously not the case for the two years before that. Indian Summer much, 2013?
PS – shameless self plug…but that zombie shirt Louis is rocking can be found [here]. He’s my favorite model.
