Welcome to my world. I say it sarcastically sometimes to my husband, but I don’t really want it to be that way, sarcastic. Taking photos everyday has made me appreciate life, family, and crazy. It’s not just a feeling that is reserved for when I look back at the photos, but those feelings are there all the time. The photos just let me enjoy them again, since my brain seems to forget things so fast.

The best toy investment we’ve made.

I was opposed to the idea of kids having phases. ¬†That was until I had kids, then my lofty ideas changed. ¬†Phases happen and that makes me smile. Each time one of ours makes it to five years, it’s time to let go of hurrying, because that just doesn’t happen at this stage of life. You might wonder why there are so many photos of Lacey tying her shoes. It’s because it took awhile, but it was worth it since she got it just right.

After concentrating on Lacey, I turned around and see this. I don’t make them do these sorts of things, it just happens.
