Quickly, I just took a virtual stroll back in time via this blog. And wow! Things sure have changed.

The first thing I noticed is that I'm turning into one of those 'photo-bloggers'. I don't nearly post as often as I once did, and when I do, I simply upload a cute pic with supporting text, then publish. Yucky. I never intended the blog to turn out this way. Hmmmm. Looks like I need better blog fodder. Perhaps I should get knocked up again? YES! That's the ticket! Jeremy...are ya with me? (Yeah, didn't think so!)

The second thing I noticed is just how damn fast Preston is growing up. Yes, everyone always says it. Heck, I bet I hear it once a week from a fellow parent, or family member. But now I'm seriously taking notice, and just where did the time go? Where did Preston's massive cheeks go? And his chubby hands? And his baby face? And his tiny, baby cry? And his chins...he has only one now? And why doesn't he want to cuddle anymore? When did all this happen?????

The third thing I noticed is the birthday ticker. P'Dub is now closer to being TWO years old, than 1. HUH? In five months, our little tiger will be TWO! Is anyone listening??? TWO. I can't even deal. I want my baby back!

And last, but not least, I noticed how much I miss actually writing. (This kind of ties into my first paragraph.) I used to write about ME. Good ol' me. My feelings. My musings. I used to go deep inside of myself, and yank out the good stuff. But now I mainly write about Preston. And I get that, considering he is my day and night. But I wonder...Is it that I don't have the time OR when I do have the time, I'd rather sit on the couch with a beer? Probably a little bit of both. Maybe the days of well-written, thought-out posts are gone?

Hhhhmmmm. So much to ponder.

Oh my gosh! My daughter will be 2 in Feb. and I totally get what you are saying! I used to be into music, reading, etc. Now, when she is asleep and I am done for the day, I'm toast! All I want to do is sit on the couch and relax (zone out) with a beer and tv. How terrible!!! I think it gets better the older they get!?!? Here's to hoping!! :) Love your blog, BTW!!! Cheers!

There's nothing wrong with being a mostly photo blogger. But it is definitely nice to actually write once in a while. Just do whatever makes you happy at the moment!
