then and now

i took this first shot of caden for his 6 month milestone shot.  he could barely sit up on his own so i propped him up on the cushion and did my best to make him smile and look at mama.  i remember thinking how big he was - and that this was my favorite shot of him yet.

10 months later, he crawled up in that same spot and started chatting with me in his secret caden language.  it instantly brought me back to the day he sat there at 6 months spitting and gooing all over me - i had to take another pic to do a little then and now comparison.   i think he's got his modeling pose nailed.
