Looking Back At Oliver (Photo Diary)

One day whilst Oliver slept peacefully next to me in my bed, I couldn’t quite believe how grown up he’s looking. He’s just over 15 months old and it’s only just hit me that I’m the mother to a toddler. He doesn’t look like our baby anymore, but now looks like a little boy. I’ve spent a lot of time looking through old photos of Oliver recently. I thought it would be nice to share some photos to see how much he’s grown up over the past year.

This is going to be a super photo heavy post! I wanted to share some photos I don’t think I’ve shared over here before just so we can see how much he’s grown up.

Ohhhh my heart!! I know seeing these photos may not mean much to anyone else but I’m nearly in tears just looking at how much he’s grown up! I can’t wait to see how much he changes over the next year. I’m so glad we’re able to take photos to document Oliver’s life and share them with you. I know a lot of people decide not to share photos of their little ones online which I totally understand and support them. If Oliver ever decides when he’s older he doesn’t want photos of him online I will 100% support his decision and will stop posting them. For now though, both my husband and I are happy to share these precious photos with you.

    My heart just burst by looking at all of these gorgeous photos! Oliver is such a little darling and so photogenic! That first photo in his little blue tshirt made me go “awwww” out loud hehe! The second from last photo of you, Nathan and Oliver all together is heartwarming too, you’re such a charming family! Can’t wait to see more of Oliver as he grows up!

    What a gorgeous young man and a beautiful photo post! It’s wonderful to look back at how much they’ve grown. My son is 16 months now and I can’t believe how fast it’s gone!

    Oh, isn’t amazing how fast they grow and how much they change? We’ve been looking back at baby photos of Matilda, now the second one’s almost here, and I can’t believe that tiny little baby is the same person as the rampaging two year old bouncing on the bed.
