Life and Times (State of the [blog] Union)

So, as you [ahem] may have noticed, we’ve been pretty kid-centered on the blog lately. Bet you can guess how we spend most days, right? 

I struggle with how much to post of the kids, given that I’m the primary person that is content to spend my free time thumbing happily through pictures of my children. Me and probably five other people (who all happen to be related to those selfsame kiddos). 

Knowing where to draw the line between what is amusing to me vs. what is amusing to normal (non-related) folk is often tough to determine. Especially since this is a site about my life (which happens to involve two crazy, wonderful babies). 

We started the blog as a way of sharing our activities and lives with far-away families. Those geographic distances aren’t so far nowadays but the readership has changed and I find that I really enjoy blogging; it’s a fun activity to do in few spare moments that are allotted after the kids have trundled off to bed. 

In summary, I’m not sure what our blog should look like, but it’ll probably continue in the same vein. I’m going to forge ahead with the normal routine and try my best to balance the kid posts with more interesting fare. Above all, I’m glad you’re here and thanks for reading. 

But first (you knew this was coming, right?!):

Welcome to the crazy farm. Never a dull moment. 

Ben just woke up from his nap. He’s still in zombie mode. Emma gives him a playful little slap to speed things up. “Here brother, I got your back” [SMACK]

And he’s awake! Thankfully he chooses to be happy-awake, not grumpy-awake, which happens occasionally.

“You good, bro? I could do a little tickling"

It worked. He’s going now. FULL THROTTLE.

This is pretty much how Ben acts around Emma. Every. single. minute.

“Loooook into my eyes, little one. Sign over all your Halloween candy for the next ten years."

And that’s a wrap, folks.

Much love,
