So I sit down this evening with a glass of Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon (it’s not bad for cheap wine and everyone needs to have a favorite bottle of cheap wine on hand for not so special occasions) and a still warm from the oven oatmeal raisin cookie (or two) to write this blog post. The dreaded blog post. The one I try to do every year. The one with my family photos. I am definitely the photographer. Not the photographee. But I’ve been coerced (okay, not really coerced but it sounds better than *a few people remembered I was going to post pictures of my family and I haven’t gotten around to it*!) into sharing. I will say that this year’s attempt went better than last year thanks to my amazing friend JG who helped with the kids and my camera. Thank you!
So here we are.
We all know the saying “take a picture, it will last longer” and it is so true especially if you are like me and have a good case of mommy brain. I want to remember exactly what my kids were like at 6, 5, and 1 and a half. While I would have liked my hair cut, a different jacket, and to have lost 10lbs…this is us. And all the effort of orchestrating family photos…totally worth it.
At a year and a half, my sweet baby is turning into a toddler. Sigh.
And my firecracker who keeps life interesting, is growing up.
And my charmer who wants to be just like his daddy is now 7.
