Point and shoot: another step toward balance

The past few months, I decided to put my official steps toward balance aside. Our family had some pretty obvious adjustments to make and putting official labels on what those should be seemed counter intuitive. August and September were spent preparing our hearts and then wrapping them around our newest girl. I'd say we definitely succeeded.

As we settle into life together, I'm finding that one of my biggest challenges as a new mama is making sure these days are documented. Everyone says you don't take as many photos of baby #2 and so on. Of course I said that wouldn't happen to me... Well, it already is.

It became apparent to me in the past few days that with my arms full of Lena, the camera was noticably absent. Then I realized that we were approaching the six week mark and we absolutely do not have enough photos of our growing babe. This is just not acceptable.

Enter goal for October and beyond: take more pictures! I'm not going to set a measurable goal, but I am going to make sure that the camera is out, close at hand and ready to go every day. My Canon will be there when a moment presents itself so I can sieze it, capture it, treasure it.

I've already gotten started and here's what I have to show off so far... It's going to be a good month!

Oh my, it has been a while since I checked in! I can't believe how big Lena is getting. What a doll! And is Addie nursing her baby? We have a shot of Henry like that too... cute!

Thanks, ladies!
The funniest thing is that when Curt came home that day, he grabbed the camera and said, "I think we need to take more pictures of Addie and Lena." I said, "So you read my blog today, huh?" His response, "No, why?"

I tell you, great minds...
