Changing Faces Week One {2015}

January 2, 2015

Sometimes I think we are all guilty of taking our children for granted. Seeing their faces everyday it is sometimes easy to miss them change before our very eyes. With each passing day their faces change a little, they grow a little bit more and learn something new.

It is not until you someone comments about how much they have changed or grown that you take a second look at them and wonder how you missed them changing.

Changing Faces

Taking a look back at photos from days out we enjoyed last year it has made me realise just how much my children have changed.

This year I want to try to capture the changing faces of my children. A reflection on the week with a selection of photos so that come the end of the year I can see just how much they have changed throughout the year.


My darling daughter has changed so much last year, from making the leap from infant to junior without a care in the world. Discovering new friends and being just as helpful towards her new teachers as she was in her previous school.

Enjoying learning new skills and visiting new places with her Cub Scouts group.

She is a sponge just ready to soak up any new information that you give to her, often found reading her fact books in order to come and tell me something new.

Looking back to this time last year I was so worried about moving Tigger from day nursery to pre-school, I don’t know why I worried so much as it has been the making of him. Whilst he doesn’t tell me all about his day like Roo did at this age he has made a best friend and watching them play together is simply heart warming.

With his love of trains still very close to his heart he has managed to find some space to add the Marvel Comic characters in there too and can often be found prancing around the living room dressed as Captain America or Spiderman trying to save the world.

How do you record the changing faces of your children?

    Ah – this post made me want to cry. You’re SO right. Often the people closest to us are the ones we stop “seeing”. I love looking back at pictures of my two and seeing how much they’ve changed and continue to change. Thanks for the reminder to take in those gorgeous faces x

    It’s funny but I was thinking about this just the other day. Master C is now the age that LMC was when he was born and I’ve been looking back at his baby photos and seeing what his sister looked like then. She’s so different yet I never really noticed her changing if you know what I mean.

    I am always taking photos, always. So much so that I even have pictures of Roo lol. It is nice to stop and look though. I just compiled a photo album of my son through his years for his 18th – it’s amazing how much they change.

    It is so nice to hear how well both your children are getting on and looking forward to seeing them again at some point this year.

    This is such a lovely idea! To have a set of photos to look back on when the year passes by. Beautiful photos x

    Such a beautiful post and what gorgeous children! You are right, it is good to step back once in a while as they change so very quickly.

  • Becky January 4, 2015 at 8:21 am

    Such lovely photos!

  • Emma January 4, 2015 at 8:50 am

    They are adorable. I try to take as many photos as possible, but need to make an effort to print more of them out.

    Happy New Year!

    Ah I love this – it’s totally the reason I join in with the Living Arrows and Siblings linkys.
    Siblings especially as I realised that though I take loads of photos of my kids it was rare that I had photos of them both together! x

    I always meant to take part in Actually Mummy’s weekly portrait challenge but never did.I don’t have a decent camera at the moment, very few were taken over Christmas.I need to have more photos taken of me with kids really rather than just them.

  • Katie January 5, 2015 at 8:59 am

    Ah what a lovely idea to capture them each week and I look forward to seeing them change each week via The Ordinary Moments. They look so alike and I love the photos in front of the pretty tree. We miss ours now it’s gone. x

    Welcome to Share With Me! I hope you like my blog hop and to see you again soon. I love this idea as I capture my two every Monday on my “him & her” posts. I did a whole year of it last year for #livingarrows and it was a amazing to see the difference each week had on them at such a young age they grow up so fast. Your two little ones are adorable. Lovely post. #sharewithme

    Lovely photos, I can’t believe how much they have both grown.
    I must take more photos of my children, it seems the more you have, the less photos you take!!

  • Merlinda Little January 9, 2015 at 8:02 am

    I think that that’s the advantage of having a blog for me. I took his photo and when I look back from old post I can see how much my son has changed and grown =) #sharewithme
