Now that I have a son there are so many precious moments throughout my day that I wish I could capture and remember forever. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of it on film but a lot of times it is something that is not possible to catch with a camera. Either because cameras are just not fast enough to catch that exact moment or because part of the reason the experience is so precious is that you are soaking in the moment not pausing to grab your camera. I get really sad sometimes thinking of all of the precious moments that were so dear to my heart at the time but have now faded into the abyss that is now my mommy brain.
I have contemplated starting a blog for a while now, more for myself to have an excuse to record these moments and as a way to share memories and stories with family and friends. For those that know me, they know I love all things crafty, and I would love to post some of that stuff on here but it will mainly be about my experiences as a mom.
To start here are some moments from our day today...
|One of my very dear friends and roommates from college came and stayed the night with us last night. Here is her son pushing Ben in the stroller. I sure wish we lived closer to each other!|
|Ben loves his books! I moved them up onto the shelf and out of the fabric boxes they had been in to make room for all of his new birthday toys so here he is standing on his tiptoes to get his books.|
|Despite the lack of a smile (hey, he's at the doctor's office) I love this picture with the sun in his curls and his delicious cheeks!|
|Then we ended with some lion cuddles on the ride home.|
