How Did This Happen?

 I have followed so many bloggers who just stopped writing after the second baby.  I swore I wouldn't do that...famous last words, right?  Never say never!

I actually haven't stopped writing completely, but I have slowed down...a lot!  I just can't find the time anymore.  For starters, I hardly ever pull out the camera...at least the real one.  My iphone is just always handy.  Plus, I can add pictures to Facebook or send them to family without having to physically sit down at a computer.   I tried to figure out the whole intagram thing, but I really stink at it.

Anyway, I want to document my resolve to be a better blogger.  I really enjoy looking back on the memories we've made as a family.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I disagree.  Pictures capture a moment, but they can't express the heart.  That's why I love blogging.  Sometimes I look back at old posts and think, "Awe, that was such a fun day."  Then I start reading how hot it was, or how bad Eli behaved, or how exhausted I was. It's funny how we paint rosy pictures in our minds.

All of that to say - I want to remember life that way it really was not the way I wanted it to be...that's why I blog.  That's why I'm resolving to do better.  That's why I'm back tracking all the way to early March to catch you up on our little lives...while it's still semi-fresh in my mind.  You still haven't heard Ellie's birth story for Pete's sake.

Hope you don't find the bazillion posts that will hopefully be going up here in the next week or two!  Until I get started...Happy Friday!!
