Honoring Everyday Moments

Remember when I used to blog a ton?  I do.  I feel like this happens every winter.  Blogging sort of slows to a crawl for me until the spring hits and I finally get my act back together.  It's not that we aren't me, we are.  But we're doing less that seems notable in the winter months.  But, I have to remember that my reasons for blogging go far beyond sharing the big moments with you.  For me, this little space that I carved out of the internet is about remembering all of the little moments that slip quietly past.  The moments that are the foundation for the big, wild, crazy moments I tend to blog about.

Perfect example, see those purple scribbles on the tub in the first picture?  That is one of the first times Abby wrote her name.  The B's look more like upside down balloons, but they are lower case letters and that is huge!  And, she wrote them in a straight line, and in order.  More often they are scattered around the page in no particular order, but on this random night in the tub, she got it right.

And Hazel, poor second baby!  I remember having post after post with random pictures of everyday life with Abby.  I really need to just keep my camera out and shoot a few here and there so this little peanut has just as many baby pictures as her big sister.  At least she's got her weekly photo blog.  I'm keeping up with some things ;)

It's these moments, these ones that seem so random and un-blog-worthy that I know someday I'll look back on and treasure.  It's the days of baths in laundry baskets (to keep from drowning) and scribbles on the bathtub that I just know will float past far too quickly.  So, on that note, please excuse the randomness that may be headed your way.  For me, it's these tiny moments that make up these little humans lives and I need to remember to document (and celebrate) them just as much as we do the big things!
