I'm now one of THOSE people

Blog post 1/52

Ok, I give in. I give up. You two win. I'm not a blogger. I'm more of a texter. I don't have a way with words and it takes me an hour to tell a simple story. So, think of this blog as more like the back of a shampoo bottle or side of a cereal box - something you read when nothing else is within reach and you just have the urge to read something to get you through whatever mundane task is at hand. Whether you are on the can or forcing down a bowl of oatmeal (which will soon lead to a trip to the can!), I won't judge.

My sister challenged, no demanded, that I start a blog and join her in a photo a week journey with me in the photo. Although, I'm super glam and take smoking hot pictures, I have realized when making my last online photo album that I am very rarely in the million pics we take. I'm fine with that since the kiddos are so much cuter and the little princes is obsessed with the king - so they have tons of pics together. So here it goes.

Oh and I know everyone always has cute little nicknames for their family members in blogs. I'm not that creative or cutesy. So since there are 4 of us, we will be the generic royal family. King daddy, queen mommy, big sis princess and little bro prince.

Today was the little prince's 4 month dr appt. 15lbs. 1 oz. (40th percentile) and 25.5" long (69th percentile) for those of you keeping score at home. Where in the world did we get these tallish children??? His shots apparently made him super sleepy but also a bit crabby bc he wouldn't stay asleep in his bed for longer then 5 minutes at a time but was snug as a drugged bug when I held him.

4 hours later....starting to wake up but still not loving being out of the queen's arms....

So there you have it. My first official post. Thanks for hanging in with me. I promise the rest won't be as long.

Oh, and don't forget to leave the fan on and light a candle.
