One of our neighbors gave us a tree to plant in our front yard. It was planted shortly before Alex's first birthday, and has been dubbed "Alex's Tree." We get to watch Alex and the tree grow up. Another neighbor had the idea of taking a picture of Alex next to the tree each year to show how they both have grown. This would bee good material for a scrapbook one day.
The photo taken on March 27, 2010. The tree has even more leaves on it now.
