So what's my point? It's really difficult for me to blog right now for a lot of different reasons. The longer I wait to write the more difficult it becomes...because my ideas continue piling up higher and higher and I simply don't know where to find the time for it all. So I'm going to start small. Today I'm simply sharing this sequence of photos from my morning with Gabriel. I just love him so. I think these photos do well to demonstrate what I'm doing with my time when I'm not blogging.
Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed about not having my blog exactly the way I want it (when I want it) I simply look at photos like these. Or better yet, I look at Gabriel sitting right in front of me in his Bumbo, on his play mat, in his swing, or in my arms (wherever he happens to be at the time)...and oh. All is well in the world.
After all, blogging is not my life. It's simply a means to help document my life. If I'm not writing it, I'm living it. And for all the moments I have recorded on this blog (in writing or through photos) there are a hundred more I couldn't possibly capture anywhere save my heart...which is a pretty good place to record them after all.
Now you'll have to excuse me as I go snuggle this little boy out of his 'I just woke up and have no idea what is going on' face to his 'Ah-ha! I see Mommy and I'm really happy to have taken a good nap!' face. I'm sure some of you other moms out there know exactly what I mean.
Happy random Thursday from Gabriel and me to you!
