How old does that statement make you feel? Wasn't the millennium new year about five years ago?
I remember when Marcel turned 18 I did a collage of photos to see how he aged through the years. I will do the same below with Charlotte, to see how the last 18 years have changed her (or not)...
So here is her lifetime so far in 19 images:
Charlotte aged 8 weeks, 1, 2, 3 and 4 years (it's interesting to see her eyes didn't change from blue to green till she was 4!)
Charlotte aged 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 years
Charlotte aged 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 years
Charlotte aged 15, 16, 17 and 18 years
It has actually been an interesting exercise. If you had asked me an hour ago, without showing me any photos, I would have said that Charlotte has not changed at all since about 2009, because she has not significantly changed her hair since then, but when I look at the photos side by side, she has actually changed quite a bit.
It will be interesting to see what the next few years have in store for her as she moves on to university. Things are still up in the air as she hasn't fully decided what or where to study, but watch this space!
