Is this thing on?

Thursday, December 3, 2015

For awhile, I felt like my last post was so aptly titled that it would be the perfect post to walk away from . . . but, I don't think I'll ever be able to completely walk away. This blog is incomplete now. It is no longer a great reflection of our lives, capturing little moments, but it still has value.

Today Amy asked if it's my photographer's mind that remembers photos that I use for comparisons. I answered that I didn't know why, but after thinking about it today, I believe through blogging I've remembered photos more over the years because I wrote the story of the photos.

In October we went to the apple orchard and I had no intention of getting Isaac to recreate a photo I took when he was 18 months old, but all of the sudden, he was doing the exact same mannerism. Pulling the photos next to each other makes my heart skip a beat. Five years.

I was just thinking the other day how much I missed your writing! That picture comparison is so sweet.

Hello! I found your blog when I was pregnant with my first, and am now halfway along with #2! Got the idea to do a gender reveal announcement thanks to your blog. I periodically come back in, but thought you may have stopped blogging with 4 kids and a career. Welcome back if you are back, thanks for checking in if you're not :)

At least your boy likes apples)
As for the topic: my daughter amazes me with sudden showups of character here and there. And I tend to agree with top essay writers that yes, we can bring them up, instilling values and habits, but with their personality they are born and it cannot be changed.
