Fresh Start

I've been feeling really guilty at what a terrible job I've done documenting our lives this past year. I'm afraid we are going to look back at Grace's second year of life and it will just be a big fat blank. I try to jot down the cute things that Grace says and does in my journal but even that has been pretty sporadic.

So, I'm giving myself a fresh start. I want to start writing in my blog again! Not really for anyone else but myself. I unfortunately have a terrible memory and if I don't write things down, they're gone. I love being able to look back and see how things have changed and remember all that has happened in our lives - both good and bad.

These past few months, we've been going through a bit of a rough patch with Grace. The terrible twos, combined with 2nd molar teething and a transition to a toddler bed haven't exactly made for lots of moments I'd love to document. Honestly, there have been days that by 9 am, I'm ready to just go to bed and start over. But for every sleepless night and every tantrum, Grace has so many adorable moments that make it all worth it. Those are the moments I don't want to forget.

Grace is a high energy, independent, fun and spirited girl. She's sassy and smart. She loves to laugh and her beaming smile melts my heart. I can't wait for her to be a big sister and to watch our family grow.

Here's to a fresh start on this blog!
