Then and now

My creation
Please click to see the whole thing. Blogger is cutting off these collages.


I pulled out this dress the other day but I did not think it would fit Kate. I bought it last March when we we waiting for her to come home and it was one of my favorites. It is pink. It is monogrammed. It has bows at the shoulders. What's not to love? She wore it on her second day home (first and last photos). Now, she has been home 7 months (standing photos). As you can see, it still fits. But she looks so different now. She doesn't look like a baby anymore. How did that happen so fast?


I know I am supposed to be taking a break but I could not let our 7 month anniversary go by. I love you Katie Ru!


Here is the link for those who have asked how to make the collages like the Halloween one I did. E-mail me if you need help.

  2. Happy 7 months together! The dress is darling and your Katie Ru is simply breathtaking. Her smile lights up the room and the sparkle in her eyes melts your heart. No wonder she steels the hearts of all who are blessed to know her.
    She will always be you baby...
