Ghost of Valentine's Past

I was going through old photos and it would appear that I didn't always have the Bah-Humbugs toward Valentine greetings. Nathan's first Valentine's Day was celebrated in Japan where we found it to be a little different from the U.S. celebrations. On February 14th, ladies give their sweethearts chocolate treats. Then a month later on White Day, March 14th, the men return the favor and shower the ladies with chocolate. I think we were just buried in being brand new parents and adjusting to a new home in a foreign country and didn't do anything for either day! But starting the year after that, I took photos of the kids and either mailed or emailed them out to our loved ones. So let's take a stroll back all the way to 2003 when Nathan was 15 months old...
2003 - He's so little! Look at that string of pearls that were his baby teeth! That was my favorite shirt on Nathan because it made his eyes look electric blue. Well that and because green is my very favorite color.

2004 - This one cracks me up because Ben looks so desperate... please be my Valentine?

2005 - Ahhh! Brotherly love!

2006 - Look at those curls! Where did they go? I would like them back, pretty please!

2007 - I guess the Bowl Haircut was really big that year...

2008 - Wow, I can't believe this was just a year ago! They've grown so much...
