Baby pictures:

I think I'll remember ever detail. But I don't. When I hold my sweet baby #3 against my chest, I close my eyes and try to remember this exact moment with baby #1 and baby #2. The memories are muddled, but they are there. They grew and one stage replaced another until I now have a 5 year old and a 2 year old. How did those moments fly by so fast?





Photo assignment:

You would think I, of all people, take plenty of pictures of my kids. Not true. I have to remind myself often to snap a picture. These moments pass too quickly. Remi is almost 3 months old! I can hardly believe it. So, take more pictures of your precious children. Put your baby/child in front of a window and get up close. Play around with the settings on your camera, try different posses, take 100+ pictures. You'll be glad you did. You would never know from these close ups of Remington that there were piles of laundry on the floor, there was play-doh stuck in my garlic press, and the kitchen was a mess. Some things are more important.

So, so true! Playdough in the garlic press? Really?! :-) You always make me smile.

Oh I agree. Somedays it seems like only yesterday that I held my brand new baby in my arms. That was almost 4 years ago. Then other days I can't fathom where the time has gone. You are so right... Moments with family are so much more important than all the other things that seem to occupy our time. Note not a licsense to live on squalor right!!

Thank you for the reminder and the precious pictures of Remi. The youngest usually ends up with fewer photos, so glad you can't get enough of him because we can't either. I just love his red hair!

I swear to you: I have play goo in my garlic press at least once a week. Hello sister from another mister.
