Inspired by the popular Instagram hashtag #tbt (Throwback Thursday) where people share their nostalgic photos, I was inspired to dig up a few of my own baby photos and compare them alongside my own baby’s photos. Check out our “Then” and “Now” photos!
Throwback Thursday: My Baby Photos vs. My Baby's Photos
In honor of the popular Instagram hashtag #tbt (Throw Back Thursday), I’ve compiled some of my baby photos to compare along side my own baby’s photos. Kind of fun to see all the similarities…and differences! Click through to see photos of Fern now, next to photos of me back then!
Post birth: Now
This is a photo of Fern and I after her water birth getting acquainted.
Post Birth: Then
My mom had a very different birth experience than I did – a c-Section in a hospital, but our poses while snuggling our freshly born babies are pretty similar.
Bath Time: Now
Mesmerized by the water, Fern loves her bath time!
Bath Time: Then
The baby version of myself doesn’t appear to be quite as enthusiastic about bath time.
Hanging Out With Grandpa: Now
Fern loves spending time with her grandpa and he adores her.
Hanging Out With Grandpa Then
Both of our grandpa’s had glasses, and while my mid-yawn expression might not convey it, I was equally enamored with my own grandpa.
A Trip To the Beach: Now
Despite the chill, my little one was definitely a fan of the sand and the surf.
A Trip To the Beach: Then
My own mama helps me get acquainted with the chilly Pacific Ocean, although it was likely much warmer in California where I was born than at the Oregon Coast where Fern experienced her first dip in the waves.
Riding On Daddy's Shoulders: Now
Our little Fern is no different – she loves a good ride on her Daddy’s shoulders. It’s the perfect cure for a case of the grumps!
Riding On Daddy's Shoulders: Then
Every little one loves a ride on their Daddy’s shoulders. I must say I’m thankful my Dad’s sense of style when it comes to shorts these days has definitely improved.
