8 years of Spencer

I wasn't going to blog tonight.  I was going to work on my free shutterfly photo album before the coupon expires at 11:59 PT.  But, I lost steam before I even really got going and, at about 8:30, made the decision that it just wasn't going to happen.  My sanity and blood pressure is worth more than the $30 book. 

The good news for you is that it gave me the time to put this awesome post together.  Let's get into it.

I was perfect again this year and didn't miss a single picture on the 6th.  The last time I missed a picture on the 6th Spencer was somewhere between ages 4 and 5. And in 8 years I have missed the 6th only 3 or 4 times.  I myself think that is pretty darn good.

Here's the whole year collage for 7 to 8.

And here is the first collage I made for birth day to age 8.  Does anybody see the HUGE mistake I made?

Yeah.  Spencer did not age from birth day to age 2 with no age 1.  Here's the corrected collage. 

And finally, here's his block collage for birth day to age 8.

Have you been satisfied by this, Jeannette?  It was satisfying to make the collages and write about them.  I hope reading and scrolling was equally enjoyable.

I don't know about Jeannette, but it was pretty darn satisfying to me. Your OCD picture taking and keeping up with 8 years of monthly pictures always impresses me. So have there been any accidental outfit repeats in any of his monthly pictures? I see he didn't have any for 7 to 8 years, and I suspect you would not have allowed it at any other time. :-)

Now that I'm out of my funk, I can catch up on commenting again.
This post is so, So, SO very satisfying. Man, I love these sort of posts (both putting together and reading them). It's really interesting to see the teeth come and go too. :)
