My new measuring stick

For Mother's Day this year, Jeremy and Lori gave me this ornamental Cherry tree.

I had their mother (you know the professional Photographer) take this picture. A is 5, B is 7 and the princess is 2 1/2 months. Now every Mother's day we are making this a tradition and standing them in front of the tree. That way I can see how much all of them have grown!
Check back this time next year for a repeat performance.

But, if the tree and the kids grow at the same rate, you'll never know how tall any of them have grown:) Your 5 yr old is catching up with his brother. I see a lot of change in him from his picture in the side bar.
I have custody of my 16 yr old granddaughter and when we picked her up, she was eye to eye with her grandfather - over 6' tall. We are going broke paying for special order shoes - sz 12.
How can we slow them down and keep them children?

What an adorable trio. I'll be sure to check back next year to see how tree & kids measure up! -t
