Last year I did a Nine Years of Simon post featuring a layout from each year of his life. That was such a fun process of looking back that I decided to do it again this year with ten different layouts.

I'll have a birthday party weekend recap to share tomorrow.

    Happy Monday Ali, I loved it when you did this last year, thanks for doing it again. These are so cute and how sweet to see him grow up to the awesome kid he is today. The first 3 layouts are new to me, so cute. Thanks for taking us down this 10yr journey with you.

    Can't wait to see the birthday pictures!! I love that you used circles on almost all of these layouts, circles are my favorite.

    Now I'm sure Miss Anna is counting down to her birthday coming up. How fast time is going by.

    Have a great day!

    Very cool -- isn't it fun (and sometimes heart-renching) to see them change over time.

    Also -- on the scrapping side of things -- fun to see how your style has changed over the years. I look back on layouts when I started -- they are so different from today.

    I wish Simon the happiest of birthdays! He has always struck me as having a young face, but "old" eyes, like there's an old soul in there.

    Happy Birthday Simon! After looking at all the layouts of Simon, it somehow feels like he is family because as an avid reader of your blog I feel like I know him and your entire family. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Love this more than you know... I remember all of these photos. My son turns 10 in May... so I've watched your son grow as my son has grown. It's gone by so quickly. My son was diagnosed with sensory integration dis-function when he was 2.5 - I always appreciated your realness in all your posts with Simon. You have been such an encouragement to me over the years. Simon is such a beautiful, happy and incredible kid. Thank you for sharing him with us all of these years.

    I feel like I'm your friend... (o: ~ kim

    This is so cool! I love seeing how the circles repeat through the years and that you were using stitching even in 2005!

    You can see the essence of simon in all of these photos - so so awesome.

    What a great idea. I should do the same. It is my son's 7th birthday today! Happy Birthday to your son on this fantastic day. (It is also Chinese New Year today, as well, the year of the dragon.)
