Little Reader

Addy LOVES books and stories. We have to limit her to 5 or less at night before bed. She has her favorites memorized (Olivia is a major favorite, by the way). Ever since school started for Carson, we have been getting the kids to bed earlier (hallelujah). Anyway, she still has a hard time going to bed (but, of course, is always the first one up too...go figure). So now, we leave her lamp on in her room, and she can read books until she tucks herself in and falls asleep. She always falls asleep at night time and bed time with a pile of books nearby. I hope this means she'll be a good reader someday...
Oh, and by the way, yes, she is on a crib mattress on the floor. Her big girl bed is made and waiting for a potty-trained girl.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
