I swore when I was pregnant with Jonah that I wouldn’t become that blogger.
You know. The one who has a baby (or has her second, third, fourth, etc. baby) and forgets that she ever once existed on the web.
Forgets about her blog, her readers, social media presence, and all that goes along with it.
Well. I did. I became that blogger.
I have successfully managed to blog a grand total of 20 times (this post will make 21) since the beginning of 2013. I have completely fallen off the radar.
I really didn’t mean to. But, with a now four month old who has cut his first tooth, a four year old who is in Preschool three days a week, a business that has taken off so far in 2013 and my new found drive to pursue all things photography in my nonexistent spare time, this blog has just fallen to the wayside.
So here’s the rundown of what’s gone on with us so far this March…
…Jonah’s first tooth has finally broken through his little gums. I can see the beginnings of about four more, so he won’t be single toothing it for long.
…Noah’s still rocking at school. He recognizes almost all of his letters now, knows all of their sounds, and his handwriting is getting SO good (for a four year old, that is).
…we all got sick a few weeks ago. Noah first, then Jonah and then myself. I felt like a zombie for about four or five days. My husband (God love him) even went and bought me a Keurig to help make up for my exhaustion.
…it snowed. And snowed again. And snowed another time. And I’m sick of it. Where is Spring?!
…I’ve worked my rear off. I’m hosting a photography workshop in Alabama this summer when we go home to visit, so I’ve been putting things together for that. I’ve also filled my schedule up completely with Website and Blog Designs for March and April. I’ll be looking forward to my vacation when it rolls around.
…I’m at the tail end of a Clickin Moms photography workshop (Lifestyle with Kids, if you’re curious as to which one). I’ve found a passion for creating beautiful images that I seem to have misplaced this past winter. I’m really looking forward to showcasing more photos here (assuming that I keep up with blogging) and reaching for new creative goals.
…I also signed up for two additional workshops in April (Fine Art & Visual Expression and Mastering Natural Light Indoors). I know. I’m just asking for a mental breakdown with everything I’m juggling.
…I’m photographing my first wedding April 6 for some friends of ours. Noah is going to be their ring bearer. He’s wearing a suit and everything. I’m seriously so excited to show you guys how cute he looks in his little getup.
…I am two-three pounds from my pre-Jonah weight. I’m dying for the weather to clear so I can start running again (you can’t really run on iced over sidewalks).
…I put on a dress and got fixed up Saturday night for the first time in over two years. I haven’t worn a dress since we moved to Kodiak. What’s the point? The weather always sucks and there’s no where to go. It felt good. And it felt even better since the dress that I wore was one I bought way before Jonah was even thought of.
…Lastly, these boys? These two little guys that God blessed me with? They have continued to steal my heart. Their little relationship as brothers is growing. Noah loves to “play” with Jonah. They sit together in the mornings and watch cartoons before Noah goes to school. Jonah in his Bumbo seat and Noah on the floor. Sometimes they hold hands. Usually, Jonah just shifts his attention back and forth from Noah to the TV. It melts me completely. It really does. I’m so blessed.
