Little Sprouts: My How They've Grown!

I thought it would be fun to do some "Then & Now" pics of Miss N & the Z Man. They have changed so much, it's unbelievable.


Z is 5 days old here and N is 2 years old.

I love this picture. N has the sweetest look on her face.

And now:

Joel took this picture on Thursday. It's great because they were actually being nice long enough to hug! They seem to get on each others nerves a lot lately. I don't know if all siblings are this way or if it's just our little misfits! ;) I do know that my brothers and I used to fight like crazy!

This one was taken after playing outside in the snow. These two adore being outside. I think they are going to love living on a farm!

These are beautiful pictures! I can't believe how much they've grown, and I've been watching them do it! My girls had fun looking at these.

What cute kids! :)

I think you are right about them loving life on a farm. I don't think I've ever met a kid that wouldn't love a life outside in the dirt! (Just invest in a couple pairs of rubber boots now! Rubber boots save the day!... Oh, and add an outdoor shower to your remodel list! :) And steer clear of light-colored carpet... Well, actually, carpet of any color is hard to keep clean in a farm house... :)

Thanks for your encouraging words about Henry. I am glad your daughter is doing great now. I always love hearing stories about other family's adoptions! I hope you'll write the whole story someday here on your blog so I can read about the whole thing!

You have no idea what a blessing it is to watch the grandchildren grow. You do an awesome job of keeping us as a part of your lives. They are absolute cuties.
(Well, so are both of you.)

To live in the country where the kids can play and grow--best life of all. The survival part of getting the place fixed and inhabitable only lasts for a time and the memories only become gentle and fulfilling. In retrospect, I wouldn't have done life any other way.

On with your dreams and (work)!

Proud of you
Moon grands :)

Hi Jennifer this is Sarah, Amber's friend. You're two little sprouts are sure cute - they make a great pair! Yes, they will LOVE growing up on a is the only way to go in my opinion. There is never a lack of things to do, they sure won't be bored I can tell you that much. Thank you for your comment, I actually checked out your blog yesterday, I just hadn't commented yet. I am sooooo excited for you and your family - what an amazing and great adventure you are embarking on - WOW!!! We would be happy to answer questions about growing organic and all that jazz. We actually just sent in the paperwork yesterday for our re-certification. So everything is fresh on our minds. There are very few things in life that are as rewarding as bringing forth organic produce from the earth- what a blessing! Oh man you could really get me going...So nice to meet you - would you mind if I add you to my sidebar of blog friends so I can watch your journey? Blessings, Sarah
