I'm not sure why:) I really hate that I'm neglecting this blog! I blame it on facebook. Or maybe my five kids....or something. It's definitely not MY fault:)

I can't believe that it has been over a week since that day! I can't quite imagine life without him here...and honestly, he would quite likely still be in my belly today if we hadn't evicted him sooner. I'm glad we did, because he was/is perfectly healthy and was 8 lbs 4 oz at 39 weeks. Given another week or so we probably would have made it into the 9 lb range...and I'll gladly stay below that!

Me and a group of friends had a much needed "girls night" on Saturday. As usual, I spent the week looking forward to this time out....little did I know that they turned it into a "girls night/baby shower" for me! Being that this is my 5th time through this, it's not quite necessary to have an all out full blown baby shower so this gathering was PERFECT! Not only was it fun to be with the girls, it was also a nice time to celebrate Truett and be showered with the perfect amount of baby necessities! Besides moving a dresser into his room (from someone else's house!), I feel like I have everything I need for this special occasion! There is still some work to do as far as organizing it all, but I feel relieved that I can at least diaper the child once he's born!

It seems like the more and more people get connected through facebook, that blogging tends to go 'out the window'. I suppose it just seems redundant to post pictures on facebook, and then again on the blog...when 'most' of the people have already seen them on facebook.
One feature I love about blogger is that it gives the other posts you might like at the bottom and I find myself clicking on these from my own blog very often. I absolutely LOVE to look back and read about things that we have done and since it has been over 3 years since I've been keeping this particular blog (I think...maybe more?), there are many posts about many random things that we've done as a family.
I think as I started getting more serious into photography that I started to use the blog as a place to show my favorite pictures, rather than just to document the on-goings of our family. I also have found that I tend to not want to take pictures unless they are in perfect light situation or perfectly in focus...and just overall photographically good. These two things have actually made me write less on my blog and take less pictures..and looking back over the last few months it is kind of sad!
There are SO many things that have gone on that I could have been blogging about! I started the blog with the idea in mind that it would be more of a family journal for myself...and for anyone else interested in reading it. I think I sort of strayed away from what that initial goal was. I don't think I've posted a single picture of our new nephew Zach..and there are very few pictures of Emma on here.
So...from now on, I am going to go back to documenting the usual stuff that we do as a family. I'm not going to care if the pictures are great, or the story isn't profound or really if anyone even reads it! I'm going to post so that I can go back and read and remember all of the fun, crazy, silly things that we do as a family.
So here goes..I shall start now with a completely random photo review of April! Lots of pics..so beware:)
