My Daughter



My heart has been overflowing with gratitude lately. Especially for this little lady. I have a really hard time even putting into words how thankful I am. Not only to have a healthy, beautiful GIRL after 2 rambunctious (but equally fun) boys, but she's also an amazingly easy baby. I feel so blessed.

I been debating a lot lately over this little blog of mine. Months go by between each post. I am so busy with life and little ones now. Most days I feel like I can barely keep my head above water. I'm sure my friends think I'm a terrible person for never responding to texts or facebook messages. This blog started as a way for me to try and keep up with some memories and to keep in touch with long distance family and friends. And now that we live in the same town as most of our family it kind of seems silly to post anything. But then I think "why not"? Why not a post here or there, even if months do go by between updates. I still enjoy looking back over old pictures and events, even if they are sporadic. I don't have to blog for anyone else (I'm sure only 2 people will even check this anyway!) I want to post things simply for my own memory and enjoyment. And on my own time schedule. So, I think that's what I will do! And I'm not going to allow myself to apologize for it or feel guilty! I've started doing a Project Life Album for our family and I'm trying to keep up with writing letters to each of the kids. But I think it would be really fun to also have blog entries to print out and include in those memory books and journals. I would enjoy it and hopefully they will enjoy looking back at these memories as well.

What a sweet little girl!

I feel the same about my blog. I started it to journal my pregnancy & then my life with my new little girl, but I couldn't find a way to fit the blog into my life & didn't keep up with it much. Looking back at old posts & photos, I wish I had kept up with it more. It motivates me to make time for it. It's crazy how much you forget!

Your daughter is such a doll! And you should totally keep blogging as you are able. My mother-in-law printed the first year of my first blog and had it bound as a book...my kids have just about worn it out being able to go back and look through it. They love reading the stories and seeing the old pictures. It's a wonderful keepsake for them.

She is so cute!!! We love looking back through old posts... I treat it like a scrapbook that is much easier to keep up. (How do real scrapbookers do it?)

We are in Columbus!
