This was the first photo we ever took with the growth chart; Hallie on her third birthday. We’ve had many photos since then but this marked the begining of a tradition, for that I will always love it.

She’s lost her natural curls and quite a few teeth – but I still remember her as that spunky/sassy little three year old. Some things never change.

She’s going through a huge growth spurt. Pants that fit her just three months ago are suddenly too small. Her arms too long for her sweatshirts. Dresses are becoming shirts. And it seems as though everyday she comes down the stairs dressed for school I’m reminded to pull yet another article of clothing out of rotation. It’s a good thing Gap seems to have a sale every other weekend!
