One of the reasons why I wanted to start blogging was to spend more time recording and reflecting on life's happenings. I've tried the whole journaling on paper thing several times throughout my life. Growing up, I was a bit jealous of my childhood friend as she would fill notebook upon notebook with interesting quotes and other musings. I, on the other hand, would stop journaling after a week or two, only to start over again a few months later in an entirely new notebook. For me, the hardest part of consistently writing in a physical journal is that my thoughts always run faster than my pencil can write. Conversely, I can use photos to remember and tell a story through a blog post (and hopefully spend less time doing it!).
That being said, I thought I would spend a few moments reflecting on Liam's second year of life and share a few of the highlights!
- He is playing with three of his favourite toys of the moment: farm animals, trains, and Mega Bloks.
- It's a good example of his organization skills (placing all the animals in the centre of the train tracks).
- And, it shows one of the goofy expressions he makes whenever we ask him to smile for a photo.
Well there you have it... a few highlights from Liam's second year of life! You can look forward to a new recipe Friday on the blog for a "naturally pink" frosting — just in time for Valentine's Day!
Let's continue the discussion. Do you keep a journal, or are you like me and have difficulty sticking with it? Let me know in the comment section below!
