Pictures of Peter

As we blog, I realize how many traditions we have accumulated over the years. One of them is pictures. For whatever reason, Karen and I decided to have professional pictures taken at ages 2, 5, 8, 12, 16, and 18/19. It's been amazing to see the difference in their faces between the ages of 2 and 5.

Peter turned 5 a couple weeks back and we had his professional pictures taken today. So we're posting newborn, 2, and 5 year pictures for your viewing pleasure.Peter was our tiniest baby at 6 pounds 8 ounces. Tiny tiny...and so fragile. And yet, he had a cute old man face at the same time. His blackened eyes were still recovering from a traumatic birthing procedure. It's amazing any of us survived! :)
Here he is at 2 years old:
And then Peter at 5:
They grow up so fast. It's a good reminder to enjoy each moment of this experience called life.

Love the pictures. Yes, it amazing how fast they grow up. There are days that I wish ours were all still little and at home, but then we would now have all of these wonderful grandchildren.
Thanks for sharing the pictures and thought.

He is such a beautiful child! He just looks pure. And guess what? I thought for a minute I was looking at Mark. I think it's the eyes. They must be related:-) Love ALL your pictures!

You both are such great parents. I love you. Is it cheaper to buy these pictures without an Aunt and Grandmother around to offer advice?
