Now and then

Three years before our honeymoon in Sant Elm and two days after Oliver's first birthday, we took Oliver to the same location. This lead to many opportunities on the honeymoon to reflect on how our adorable baby has grown into a beautiful boy.

The last time we came to Sant Elm he was crawling around the apartment in nappies, pointing at things and saying "diss!". This time he was taking himself to the bathroom and saying "Go away please I need some privacy" if I tried to check on him.

Yes, he really is growing up fast.

So inevitably, I found myself revisiting old locations and reflecting on how he has grown. But of course it is not just Oliver. Our whole family has grown. Three years ago there was no Lucy (not even a bumpette).

Here are a few pictorial illustrations of my reflections.

What can I say. They grow up so fast! But every now and then I do manage to stop and smell the roses. And man they smell good.

Great photos. Esp the stroller pic, which was awesome. Amazing how fast they shoot up.

Thanks James. It was good fortune I took the airport shot from the same angle.

My favourite is the one on the bus. By chance Oliver sat in the exact same seat and I took the photos at the same point on the same ride.
