And It Will Take A Lot of Prayers to Save My Soul

Is it Saturday already? It sure is. It must be, because here I am with my Saturday Scavenger Hunt post. This week's word was chosen by rogue blogger AlienCG over at Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections. The word is....GROW. Very open ended, really. But as I so often do, I am going very literal. Check it out - - -

You can't actually watch your own hair GROW, even though at times I feel I am made almost entirely of hair.

But hair does GROW and here is the proof. This little picture was me with my haircut a little over two years ago. Since then, I've done virtually nothing to me hair. And it shows. Guh.

Here are some much, much cuter examples of how we GROW...again, literally :-)

Those first few months of watching a baby GROW are soooo amazing. Little Prince is coming up on nine months. I see him at least once a week, but sometimes I know he did some GROWing between one visit and the next.

Okay, I confess...this is just a sweet picture I had to post of Miss Personality and Love Bug hugging it out. But it works. This is how much you will probably GROW between the ages of 1 and 4!

What happens when you GROW too large for your beloved swing? If you are Love Bug, you sit in it anyway, just for old times sake. She looks rather pensive, but funny with her longer than baby legs dangling out. Soon, she will have GROWn too big for even a nostalgic rock there. Aw!

Thanks for looking at baby pictures with me. You know you run that risk when you come by here...so I extra appreciate you coming. I know from my own kids how quickly they GROW. And I know from myself how quickly hair GROWs. Also, I hope I can continue to GROW as a human bean, although I wasn't prepared with any sort of photo that might show you that. You'll just have to take my word for it.

Don't forget to check with the Alien and see who he's tagged for next week. Also, don't forget to let at least a little part of you not GROW up. We all need that inner child. *insert dopey new age music here*

Great one!

I am in no danger of ever growing up all the way. None. ;-) Glad others agree and share my philosophy.

I love baby pictures.

Finally got my Saturday scavenger hunt photos up. Geez... one of those days.

Such cute kids... I bet the time flies, they'll be all grown up before you know it!

My how time flies and hair and kids grow. I remember the first posts of Love Bug so long ago. She's grown up so quick, soon she'll be asking to borrow the car. I also remember when you first posted the picture of your new hairdo. My, but I have a photographic memory (pun intended). Excellent pictures.

Ananda: I enjoyed your post! Thanks for not minding baby pictures. They're my favorite photographic subjects :-)
And yes, we should all keep the kid side of us alive and indulged.

Sebastien: As I get older time moves faster and faster. It alarms me sometimes. I try to remember to appreciate each moment.

AlienCG: hee hee! That is one of the things I love about blogging...having people remember things with me from an earlier time.
I am hoping that by the time Love Bug can drive we'll finally have those flying cars we've been promised for so long...

You are very pretty with hair short or long!
Love all these 'grown' pics! Too cute!

laura b. said...

Daffy: Great to see you and thanks. You're too kind :-D

Tara said...

I love Love Bug's rebellion towards growing out of her swing.

Also love that first picture of you! I miss my long hair - sometimes, but when it's hot outside I do not.

laura b. said...

Tara: haha! I like that 'never give up' spirit too :-)
Thanks! I agree, often when it is hot I wonder why I bother with this mop.

Churlita said...

Nice shots. I've been so bad about doing mine. That pic of your two grandgirlies is amazing.

JeSSiCa... THaTS Me!! said...

those are SUPER cute baby pics!
I wish i could watch my hair grow...
= (
lol I guess it doesn't help having a hairdresser for a mom
and a sister learning too

laura b. said...

Churlita: Thanks...and I believe that may be because you have rather action packed weekends. Posting photos is probably last on your list :-)

Jessica: Aw, thanks :-) I wish I had a family member who did hair! You're so lucky.

Pamela said...

Your hair grows slowly it seems...
And great baby photos!

laura b. said...

Pamela: Yeah, I do think it grew faster when I was younger....
Thanks :-D
