I Keep Meaning to...

Ok, so I can't tell you how many times I've tried starting this blog and just kept pushing it back. It's been over 4 years since I made this site, and every now and then I come back and think, "Where do I start?!?".

In a perfect world I would have started when I was pregnant with Aiden,

or after he was born,

 or when I was pregnant with Maddie,

 or after she was born,

or a million times in between each of these events.

But, we don't live in a perfect world and instead of starting the blog when I should have, I'm starting it today. On an absolutely ordinary day, where nothing really is going on. Everyone is taking a nap and I have more than 5 minutes to myself, but not much more than that because my sweet little Maddie is waking from her peaceful slumber and is ready to be fed.

I hope that I am able to keep up with this blog. There are always times when I think, "Man I should be writing this somewhere," or "I wish I had somewhere where I could tell everyone about that,". Maybe now that I have written the first entry, things will be easier from here on out! Let's hope!

Courtney! The blog is great! Keep up the good work! I hope everyone is doing well up in Pittsburgh. Emily and Garrett have left Chapel Hill and are starting out in Houston (Em got her Master's in Library Science in May).

Amanda is in London right now, expected back home in Nashville next Saturday.

Our love to everyone!

I love seeing your two different pregnant bellies!

Excellent work, dear! Keep it up! Even if it's just a few sentences a day--it'll be something :-)

I also agree with Deirdre that seeing both of your pregnant bellies is very fun.

And I also heard a fascinating podcast yesterday from BBC's "Woman's Hour" that talked about Mommy-bloggers, why they do it, how some of them make money off it (who knew??), etc.. Here's the link--you can listen online.
