For a while, I felt stuck because I fell so far behind, but then I decided it really doesn't matter if I post the photos out of order or forget to say something that I meant to say. I'm blogging for me. It gives me a chance to review the many, many photos I have taken in an attempt to document these little boys.
As I create each post, I get to travel back to each moment. Once there, I try to remember everything about it. I don't want to forget the smell of my stinky little boys, and I don't want to forget their smiles and laughs. I hope that documenting our time together and reviewing these memories will help keep it all fresh in my mind for years to come.
I know that someday this blog may disappear or that nobody will look at it, but for now, I'm going to continue on...
