If this was the TV game show, Jeopardy, today’s category would be: Things That Grow.
My first answer would enthusiastically be, “Well, Alex, I’d have to go with: My grandson, Sebastian.”
Today I offer the photographic proof to the truth of that statement.
Here is Sebastian (we call him Bash) at a mere 1 month. Still curled up and fetal. Adorable, of course. But oh, so tiny still. (The personalized sheet is available online from Woolf With Me.)
Two months and he’s starting to fill out his little face.
At three months you can recognize that crooked smile of his and his skinny little baby legs are filling in.
Four months. How time flies! Look at this kid. He’s starting to look like a little person. Shoes!!
This kid, though. I’m so glad we started documenting his once-a-month growth, because, seriously, if you blink, you’d miss this. Look at him at 5 months, getting ready to crawl.
Very recently we had this photo of him taken and I had to remind myself that this is the very same little guy who was all gangly legs and startle reflex. He sat still long enough for the photo but was soon crawling away and pulling himself up.
Things That Grow: Grandchildren – count on it! *sigh*
I started writing this post to share with you the amazing opportunity for growth that’s available from my friends at ScholarShare 529.
But I felt compelled to first share with you that growth happens without us giving it too much thought until we’re on the other side and wondering, “Hey, when did that happen?”
ScholarShare has created a wonderful plan to help you invest in your children’s or your grandchildren’s futures.
I’m talking about the Scholarshare 529 College Savings Account. Many parents and families today worry their child or grandchild will begin their adult lives burdened with crippling school loan debt. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whether your son or daughter is getting ready for pre-school or high school, the time to figure out your options and make a plan is now. Find out how the ScholarShare College Savings Plan can be a part of your college savings strategy.
Here’s the really GREAT news for today:
On Friday, Dec. 9, 2016, for one day only from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. PST, California families who open a new ScholarShare 529 college savings account with $50 can receive a matching initial deposit of $50 from ScholarShare.
To be eligible for the matching promotion, California families will need to open a new ScholarShare College Savings Plan account with at least $50 – to be contributed and invested at the time the new account is opened – and enroll in the automatic contribution plan for the new account with at least a $25 per month contribution.

Also, as you know, because I included it in my Smart Cuban’s Christmas Gift Guide, you can also pick up $25 ScholarShare gift cards and drop them into their stockings this Christmas. Available at both “Toys R Us” and “Babies R Us,” or directly from ScholarShare. This is the perfect week for this and an ideal gift that they don’t know they’re going to appreciate so much later.
