My baby isn't really a baby anymore...



not that she was before she turned 5 but holy crap...5??? Where did the time go? I don't know and it sucks. I do feel like I've done a good job at keeping those memories alive so to speak, we all look at the scrapbooks and watch the videos from time to time. The only thing I wish I did more of was write stuff done, like in a notebook. I have a few scrap pages that have funny things they have said or pages with all the funny words they would call every day objects or people. But I don't have many details into every day life...journals really. I've said for years now that I want a real journal but do I do it. Nope! So today I'm going to start, I figure any random day is better then me saying, next Monday I'm going to start a journal. So today in about 3 minutes I'm going to find a normal PLAIN notebook put it by my nightstand and journal a page and pray that I can keep it up everyday or at least once a week. And we all know how awesome I am with keeping a blog, but maybe this will spark something. We shall see.

So I think now that my baby is 5 it's a perfect time to show a baby picture and a now picture...

Awwww, Happy Birthday, Neely!

My hubby wanted me to do the journaling thing like you're doing starting with when I was pregnant with each of the girls. I didn't get very far, but I know you can do it!!

hey you!!!! so glad to FINALLY see some new stuff! not that i don't like rereading what Breana means. but still. CAN'T believe Neely is 5! oh my...these dang kids. can't stand it. now you're way crafty and i've seen this before yet to do for lack of counter space BUT what about a big fish bowl or mason jar left on the counter where you drop in little notes or funny things the girls said? it's like a comment jar. i can't remember where i stumbled upon this idea but it was one of the random blogs i've ventured upon. the mom said she writes stuff down as the day goes along on any old piece of paper and then drops it into the jar so the memory or moment is at least captured for later, when she has a chance to enter it into a journal and add context. she says that her mother had the same thing and as she grew up she and her sibblings were encouraged to leave HER notes on thoughts and ideas they had about their day, family, world, etc.

whew! we need to get some face time, sista! where the heck did the time go?! hugs to that five year old beauty of yours, as well as to the rest of the Arvin gang. miss you!
