Way Back When-esday: When we still counted time by weeks...

Linking up again this week with Cheryl at Twinfatuation to bring you another blast from the past...twin-style!

Digging through the picture files this morning, I found three shots that are exactly one year old today--July 27, 2010.

The babies were exactly 7 weeks old. Makes me wonder when we stopped counting time in weeks and moved to months. And when we will stop saying they are __ months old and start saying they are ___years?

For old time's sake, let's take it back to when the time was short enough to count the weeks: my babies are officially 59 weeks old today! Happy 59 weeks, babies!

"Look, it's Melissa!"

"Look, it's Marty!

"Happy 7 weeks-day!"

Precious! I remember the weeks thing too. I can't tell you how I love seeing pictures of your sweet babies now and then. It jogs my memory and I seem to be able to remember something about the boys that I had not thought about in a while. Thanks for sharing your life!

That last Boppy picture is precious!!! I have some of the cutest Boppy pictures from exactly that time, 7 weeks old. Priceless. :) :)

By the way, Hubby and I said we would stop counting months when the girls turned 2 1/2. And that's been pretty easy to do. With time, the passing of one month is not quite so monumental (as in, there is a huge difference in a 3-month old and a 4-month old...). It now seems natural to say that the girls were 2 1/2 in July.

So true about the "weeks, months,years" thingie. Time goes by WAY to fast!

Happy wednesday!

What's funny is when you tell someone who doesn't have children that "she is 12 weeks old" or "she is 22 months old", they get totally lost!

Love the boppy picture! We have several similar pictures of our twins in the boppy pillows. Hard to believe ours are 3 1/2 "years" old now. :)

I loved the week counting time!! Sweet pictures!

Could those babies be any cuter all curled up in their boppies? So sweet!

And, I think we stopped telling people the babies' ages in months at around 2, but we have clothes in the closet labeled 36 months! :)
