BECAUSE.

Because sometimes you just need a quiet place to sit and read, and that’s okay.

Because sometimes you don’t want to answer people’s questions, and that’s okay.

Because sometimes you’ll be the quiet kid, and that’s definitely okay.

Because sometimes you won’t have the words to say in the moment, they won’t come until afterward, and you can write them down and save them for later, for only you.

Because you’ll never be what they wanted you to be, and that’s okay too.

TUH-TUH.

Gigi went to Hawaii and brought back a turtle for Elliot. Excuse me, I mean a “tuh-tuh.”

It does not leave his side.

He cuddles it in bed, on the couch. He feeds it his breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He takes it in the car.

Someone’s going to be a (fingers crossed) good big brother.

OSCAR: 32 WEEKS.

Husband shot these for my Belly Diaries post coming up on Saturday and I couldn’t wait until then to post them. Plus, I wanted to post all of them because this is my blog and I can photo dump if I want to.

We’re in the home stretch, folks. Here’s to an uneventful eight weeks.

FEELING RESOLUTE.

I’m vowing to get my camera out more. To actually take it with me when I leave the house. I have thousands hundreds of iPhone photos but they’re all snapshots. I want more moments. I think those only come with not treating my Nikon like Bertha in the attic. And I want photos of more than just E. I want to remember our life, where we went (even if it mostly consists of the inside of Trader Joe’s) and what surrounded us along the way. Photos of Brandon and me and our friends so that in ten years we can act appalled at our (then-) outdated hair styles (because right now we look really, really cool).

This is my middle-of-the-year resolution.
