Before and After

Okay. Two years ago we went to a friend of Jay's from work's place. His name is Mike, and his lovely wife is Pat. They have a pool. The kids have a ball there. When we went, Lucy was just about three weeks old. We took a family picture (the only one we would take altogether for a year or so) sitting on Mike's deck.

We went there again on Sunday, and I thought it would be neat if we took the same picture. Cause I jus' loves me some photo comparisonizing.

So. Here is July 2003

Lucy! Quel difference! She is totally lookin' for the boob in the first pic. In the second, she is looking to get the hell outta there and back to the pool.

One of the bummers is that in those two years between the photos I had about six different hairstyles, but managed to have almost the same haircut in the end. Wah.
What's with my hair, anyways. I think I have this fun modern haircut, SO 2005. And yet. Here is me at five years old.

Um, same haircut, no? What the heck am I paying forty bucks for when my dad can just get the garden shears out like back in 1975 and do the same thing?

I know what youre thinking. Who's lookin at the hair when that pointy CHIN is in the picture. Yikes. I could cut carrots with that thing.

Cute pictures. Funny how you have to practically tie the children down to get them in the picture.

You and your hair are adorable.

Damn you have some good hair, girl.

I WISH my hair could look so good!

Even if it is a little similar your hair looks GOOD. And so cute!

Damn fine hair! And I love the time-lapse photography. Your family is gorgeous! I must note that your hubby's hair didn't change much, either.

Can I borrow that little red-headed girl sometime!

Great Blog. I'm going to bookmark you.

I was thinking what mrtl said. It cracked me up that, in the second pic, you were tying down one child, hubby was keeping one from running away, and the third child was resigned, but not happy. Teehee.

As for the hair. There's probably a reason you keep going back to that haircut. It looks cute. It's very flattering. And who doesn't want to embrace their inner 5-year-old? ;o)

I think ya look great, and the hairstyle is awesome. And I never noticed a pointy chin.

Kids, eh? Gotta love 'em, I guess.

Jay's still got a shiny head, the boys are still wiggly...the major change I see is isn't Lucy, it's in you.

In the first picture, I want to take you by the hand and get you someplace horizontal for you to take a nap. You have the "Mother of a 3 week old eye glaze" going on.

You look far more rested now. ;)

Since that 2003 pic you haven't aged a day, girl!

But you need to stop showing people your cute hair. Because I have so far managed to convince people that I have the cutest haircut on the internet, and so we can't be havin' any evidence to the contrary. Mmmmmkay?

(But seriously, you are frickin' adorable.)

Super darling. Great idea on the before and after pics. Lookin for the boob - so funny.

I think my jaw dropped when I saw the 5 year old cut and 2005 cut. Unbelievably similar! Just be thankful you don't have the bowl cut bangs!
