Children Grow So Quickly - Then & Now Photos!

I know that kids grow and change so fast. We always say to enjoy every moment because of that reason. I have some photos of my children together with the same object and you can REALLY see the differences and changes that have gone through.

It's amazing and makes me a little sad to see these side by side. My kids aren't babies anymore. BUT, I know that no matter how old they get, in my heart, they will ALWAYS be my babies!

Then & Now photos...

2005 (1 1/2 and 4 1/2 years old)

2008 (4 1/2 and 7 1/2 years old)

2009 (5 1/2 and 8 1/2 years old)

Don't blink... they grow way to quickly!

These were taken at the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse visitor center in Newport, Oregon.   I'm hoping that my kids will get back up there one more time this summer for one more picture.  They will be 9 1/2 and 12 1/2 on our next visit.


Do you have the perfect "then and now" photos of your children?

I love it and you definitely need to have them do a reshoot at least once more!

This is such a cute idea! I'm with you they do grow fast. It's exciting but bittersweet at the same time.

These are great! No perfect photos in our digital albums, but definitely some we take every year. We always get them on vacations, while strawberry picking and then during pumpkin season. I love comparing them!

Those are wonderful! Hmm...that makes me think. I don't know if I have any now and then photos of my kids.

I love these! I wish I would have thought to do something like this when my kiddos were little.
