sometimes i'm a lazy copycat

Between ear infections (baby girl's) and laziness (mine), our little blog has been neglected. Lots of things are going on, but I'm not sure how much or how little you want to hear, as I'm now one of those people who thinks too often about the regularity and consistency of someone else's poop.
    
While I think on that and figure out what I'm doing, I'll leave you with this great idea I copy-catted from my cousin: a 52-photo book. 

It's easy to take lots of baby pictures, but mom and dad sometimes don't make it into the frame. So, for the last year, I've made sure we take at least one picture of our baby girl with her mom or dad—ideally, some photos of both—every single week. I printed out my favorites (ended up as 200, not 52) and put them in a book that documents her first year with all three of us together. And now I'm in the habit of taking pictures of the family, not just her. Instead of posting all 200 here, I'll opt for two favorites:























Yeah, I'll probably just keep blogging about that girl. Even her poop is the cutest.

i think that face in the second one is saying, "whoa! that is the coolest TV pillow ever!" or something like that.

Such a fantastic idea. I am going to copy you.

Ear infections are terrible. Connor has one and Lily has enough fluid in her ears to make her miserable but not an ear infection (yet) so we can't treat it. Sigh. The joys of parenting.

You have one crazy happy cute kid.

I love, love, love this idea!!! For my own family, but definitely for you to keep posting your best family pictures for my enjoyment! I'm sorry we barely missed you at the library the other day.

I love these pictures. Thank you for sharing them. DAD

Annie, I asked her about her expression and she said the TV pillow. How did you know?

Eden, thanks so much!

Adrienne, tell Lily to get better quick. Being sick is the worst!

Janel, don't worry—we'll catch up with you yet.

Dad, you bet! I should throw some more up on the family blog. What a slacker I am.

Ahhh, I LOVE those pictures! What an adorable girl! I'm sorry she's had some ear infections... We've been lucky enough to never have to deal with one of those with Sophie, but I hear they're awful...

That is great! She'll be able to look through the book too. I need to take a page from your book, I don't have any baby books printed out, or scrapbooked.

That second picture could be my favorite, of all time.
