One of the main things I love about being a SAHM is getting to see all of Natalie's "firsts". While I'm pretty sure I caught a giggle several weeks ago.. today there was no doubt. She laughed several times today when we were playing. It's amazing how exciting it is to watch her reach milestones and discover the things around her. She turned 4 months on Tuesday, and as I've said so many times before, the time just flies by.
She has really starting babbling so much lately, but it seems whenever we go out with family, she's too mesmerized by everything around her that we can't get her to talk. So I've tried to catch some video of her talking..
Jolene is having a RAK in celebration of her 1 yr blogging anniversary. So after answering her question about why we blog, I thought I would post something about it here. A year ago if you would have told me that I would be a blogger and make time to read other blogs daily I would have said, "yeah right". Especially knowing that I would have a new baby in the house. I always wondered where people found the time. But one thing about having a new baby is that you spend a lot of time sitting down. Whether it's to feed her, hold her while she sleeps, or just simply letting her play on the couch or floor while you keep an eye on her. So it's very easy to find the time with a laptop and multitask :). So why do I blog?
I'm so glad I started blogging for several reasons.
- It allows me to share pictures of our family easily, for friends and family that we don't get to see that often. It's nice to know so many people take the time to come by and read.
- It helps me remember the little things that go on in our everyday life and is helpful in preserving memories. One thing I do need to do is back up everything I've written. If blogger were to crash I would be so upset that I lost everything I wrote. So there's a freebie tip.. back up what you've written.
- I have "met" so MANY people. I have come to know people all across the country (and even not in this country) through the blog world.
- So much of my personal scrapbooking style is what it is because I am constantly inspired and motivated by so many bloggers and fellow scrappers.
