I posted here about some updates I did to my little girl’s room in honor of her upcoming birthday. I really can’t believe that my little baby is turning 5. Five just seems so close to double digits and further away from babyhood!
I soo want to be the mom who takes millions of pictures and immediately puts them into photo albums or scrapbooks. I AM NOT. Strong is a woman who knows her limits! I was really good for the first two years and then I went ahead and had another baby and man has the picture-taking and picture printing gone down. Now, I find I take the photos, but rarely do anything with them.
I think I am overwhelmed by the digital age because we end up taking so many more photos. Instead of going through them and ordering the ones I like and deleting the ones I don’t I get paralyzed by it and don’t do anything.
So, in an attempt to record more moments and honor my daughter’s 4 years ( I forget sometimes that she is so new to this Earth), I took photos of her during her last month of being 4. I called my little project “four weeks of being four.” I tried to take pictures of her doing things that are things that toddlers typically love. I know she will be outgrowing some of these things so soon, so I wanted to make sure I had it documented.
Here she is doing some adorable toddler girl things! FYI- This is just a sampling of the 1,000 baby dolls we have. Thank heavens I have another girl!
If you have children, how do you document their little lives? Any tips on organizing and actually doing something with all those photos??
