Oh, How They Change: Our Family In Pictures

Back in 2010, I wrote a post called Oh, How They Change – The Christmas Edition. My idea at the time was to write a post every year at Christmas and show our annual family Christmas picture. Since Ethan was born in 2007, we had one taken every year…2011 would’ve been our fifth picture. But because I suck, I already broke the annual tradition and we missed having our picture taken.

Until March 2012, that is. So really, I’m only a few months behind. But I think it’s pretty cool to see how your family grows, which is why I wanted to share the pictures with you!







There you have it! The Hoage family through the years. And I just noticed that in every picture I’m holding Mia and Jason is holding Lila. I really can’t believe how fast time goes and how quickly they change. It’s bittersweet, isn’t it?

Lila, Ethan and Mia

  14. I have been terrible with professional family pictures! The last time we had one done was when the twins were just under a year old. This makes me want to remedy that. I love to see the changes like this. You have a beautiful family! Nicole @MTDLBlog recently posted..Blog Idol Interview: Blogging as a Business {SITS Girls}My Profile
