I was looking at the Santa photo from last December just last night and got twelve kinds of verklempt. It blows my mind that BigBrother has gone from looking like a large toddler to looking like a little boy in what feels like overnight.
The transformation was even more mind-blowing recently when he lost his two front teeth.
He went from this:
In about two minutes. And no, I didn’t do it. Gag.
His face looks older. In fact, he just seems older the past two days. It’s like I have an entirely different child in my house all of a sudden. Factor in the point that he sounds different because of his missing-teeth-induced lisp, and I’m just confused by the instant transformation. I look at him and my jaw kind of drops.
School picture day is next week, so this gap will be forever captured as a reminder of who he was at the beginning of Kindergarten. Not that I won’t be doing my own capturing, of course.
