Quote of the day

 Today's quote comes from Lillian Ashe, age 6, who said, "These shorts are a little bit big. Maybe I shouldn't wear them until I earn a little weight." 

A couple of weeks ago, Lil lost her top front tooth. One minute it was there, hanging out of her mouth, making her mother cringe.

The next minute, it was gone!

What a difference a year makes

I've really neglected this blog lately, partially because I've started a food blog, but mostly because writing about my everyday life isn't much of an escape from it.

I took this sweet picture of Lilly the other night and gasped when I saw it. What happened to my baby girl? She looks like she's 10 years old!

So, I did some reminiscing on iphoto and this is what I found:

Lilly, just one year ago at her preschool graduation, May 2009. The difference between a five-year-old and a six-year-old is mind blowing. Here's a picture of Jonathan that very same day. 

Who says bald isn't beautiful? He was just 10 months old, still a baby in a sling.

Of course, a couple of days later, he started to walk.

And here he is today, not even 2 years old and already addicted to the Blackberry. We weren't sure if his hair was going to stay red when he had so little of it. I think the verdict is in. 

So, I'm recommitting to this blog. No fancy prose, just pictures of the day-to-day. A time capsule for my children, who are growing up way too fast. An expression of love and respect for my dear Aunts, who long for hand-written letters, but are genuinely appreciative of my silly blog posts instead.
