My Sunday Photo – 30th April 2017

the little man sitting on a tree
My Little Man, my baby (although he hates it when I call him this,) my youngest and last child.
I can’t believe how quickly times flies, he was surely just a baby yesterday and now he’s in his seventh year! 
See his blonde hair, it looks lighter in this photo with the sun shining on it, it has got darker as he has got older. He was born with very blonde hair and I remember it being really blonde until he was four, then it starting getting darker. My first born son has dark brown, almost black hair, then my three daughters have brown hair getting lighter as they get younger, then there is the Little Man who has almost blonde hair. If you lined my children up by age their hair would go down in shades.
My Little Man has blue eyes, his brother, my eldest has brown eyes. Two of my girls have blue eyes and one has brown. I have brown eyes and I love that I have one boy and one girl with my eyes.
The Little Man looks just like his Dad, apart from the hair colour. My eldest son looks like me. My daughters all look like me. My eldest daughter and Star look so alike each other despite the sixteen year age gap and the fact that they have different fathers. 
My first three children are all really tall, but the Little Man and Boo are small. Star is only 11 but I have to buy her 14 to 15 yr old clothes. Boo is 9 and wears 9-10 yr old clothes. I can’t even pass Stars clothes down to Boo because despite their being less than two years between them their size difference is five years!

    Hi Anne, children will never understand how they will always be our babies! Or maybe they will if they go on to have a family of their own, something I look forward to witnessing, not for the Grandchildren, but just because I want my two to realise that parenting is not as easy as they think!

    You do have a diverse sounding family with a smattering of parent features throughout. And a lovely photo of your not so little anymore youngest.

    My babies are 13 and also hate me calling them that. Clothes passing doesn't work here anymore either. Lovely photo of your youngest.

    Love this! It's amazing how kids from the same family can differ so much in size. My three kids all look pretty similar and have all got light brown hair. Two of them go fairer in summer and one stays the same. They've all got blues eyes too. One was always big for his age, one was always small and my daughter has always been a bit above average size! Now the small boy is BIG and I'm waiting to see if the big boy will go BIG too!

    My son was born with very light blonde hair but it is getting darker as gets older. My daughter had a full head of black hair when she was born and now has light brown hair. All very strange!
