little by little

My cousin Jenny asked me this weekend why I don't blog every day. I just looked at her and laughed. Maybe it is my 3 full time jobs: mommy to Lila, Brian's wife and running our house and of course, my actual full time day job. I am so behind on blogging. I have not even shown pictures of our trip to Charleston over New Years. Or talked about Lila's FIVE teeth. Or how much real food she eats at every meal (just dinner last night: 15 puffs, 4 pieces of pineapple, a whole container of mixed vegtables baby food, half a piece of whole wheat fresh bread and a quarter of a baked sweet potato. Seriously?)

But my Truth of 2011 is that I am often too busy to blog. Maybe I take too much time to edit and format pictures. Maybe I am too worried about my grammer. For 2011, I will let myself post little posts. Not a huge story, just something about our day. So in that Truth, I will catch up another day and for now, here are two different pictures of me wearing the same shirt. Holding Lila...snuggly little baby Lila on Mother's Day 2010 and playing with my huge grown up little one last week. This year has flown by.
I won't grow up, I don't want to wear a tie.
And a serious expression in the middle of July.
And if it means I must prepare to shoulder burdens with a worried air
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up, not me!

Yah, you really are doing the right thing by blogging when you can and not all the time. It can get too crazy!
