Hey, hey. I'm still here!
I'll just jump right in and do some catching up. I've been working on that ol' to-do list. Mainly picture stuff. I can't be the only one swimming in this printing business? I used to be on it. I would print every.single.picture of Finley. Then there were two. I fell off. I vowed to at least print them all for Carson's first year. And I got about that far. I'm now over a year behind, for both kids.
I'm getting there, little by little. I just finished out 2013 for Finley's loose prints (I slide them in albums). For 2014, she'll get a photo book of highlights. Same for Carson. I'll do lots of prints for him until he's 2ish and then start narrowing prints into books. See, there's a plan. I do keep everything on an eternal drive as well. Hard copies are still really important to me, even if making that happen eats up a ton of time.
I've also decided to start learning this DSLR I've had for ohhhhh...six months now. Yeah, I say that all the time. I joined Clickin Moms and have been lurking and reading here and there. That's a start. It's a paid membership so it gives me some accountability. I've also been playing with the camera a little. Don't be too harsh on me. I really don't have a clue as to what I'm doing just yet. For these I mainly just played around with aperture and angles. There's so much to learn.
How could I forget? We added a new member to the family. Meet Jenny.
She is the sweetest little thing and all the hype in our house these days. Pretty sure we hold her about four times a day at this point. Her name actually came from Finley messing up and calling her "my jenny pig". So it stuck.
There was originally going to be more to this post but that'll have to come soon. We had an exciting weekend with something sort of work related for Joe. I'll be sharing that soon. Carson is up from his nap now. Both kids are at the tail end of a nasty tummy bug so it's time for me to go back to being nurse mommy!
