We’re still figuring out what Easter will look like for our family, but this year is making me very excited for the future. E is old enough that he understands egg hunts now, and they’re my new favorite things. We don’t hide the eggs very hard, but he loves running around finding them, and now that he knows that they’re filled with treats, he’s extra excited.
Fall-back Friday, Foto Friday, whatever you want to call it. Mostly an opportunity to share some pictures with you. Some relatively new, some super old... just things I've been looking at and that make me happy.
I don't have a lot of words lately. I've been taking some time to just... be. Watch, take pictures, be in the moment, take a breath, make my baby giggle.
When I was pregnant and we'd walk through Target looking at baby clothes, Tom was always drawn to the socks. He'd talk about one day possibly having matching socks with E. Somehow when I was looking for Christmas presents this year, I stumbled upon Happy Socks and fell in love. They come in awesome designs, they have sizes (not just one size fits most) so they actually fit Tom (!), AND they have matching baby socks!!
My boss made a comment to me recently. "Make sure you get a few pictures of E crying too." His point was that they'll remind us of how far we've come and all the rough times we went through, but also that they can be hilarious.
It's true that we focus a lot on the cute and happy baby pictures. But one of the reasons that my boss and I work so well together is that we have the same sense of humor. So although I don't always share them, there are plenty of "bad" pictures.
It's a busy week, so not a lot of time to get my thoughts down, so that means more pictures to share!
Babies in towels, and babies in hoodies. Those are my weaknesses. For now, please enjoy some hoodies! (I'm pretty sure E owns more hoodies than I do at this point..)
There's a common thing that happens in families that I've heard a lot of people talking about lately. Moms take a lot of pictures of the kids and the family, but she's never in them. I've been thinking about that a lot this summer, especially as I take hundreds and thousands of pictures of E.
A special throw-back Thursday for today.
Just a little "throw back Thursday" of our Palm Sunday kitty.
So as I was putting together my list of happy memories, I started going through a bunch of my old pictures. I found some that I really love, and thought I'd share them for a "Throwback Thursday" post!
Have you ever gone through your recent photo gallery on your phone and thought "holy cow, I'm a crazy person!" ? No? Just me?
