Right now

I. am. so. terribly. behind.

I have so many things I want to blog about. I just can't seem to find the time. Like:

* Our visit to the pumpkin patch.
* Halloween
* Katie's love of rice cereal.
* The bathtub song.
* All of Katie's sweet antics.

and so many other things...

And of course, I have so many photos to share.

I want to blog so I can remember these moments, and have them documented. And to share them with family and friends, with photos of course! (I know that's what you all are really after).

What I will say is this...

Every moment I have to spend with my sweet daughter, I do. I can honestly say that I drop everything, all the time, to be interacting with her - playing, reading a book, holding her, getting down on the floor and rolling around with her... yes, my house could be more clean. The laundry could use some more attention (and be put away once it's washed). My eyebrows need to be plucked. I need to floss my teeth more. I could be baking some banana bread. Or apple pie. Or at least attempting to, since I'm not the greatest baker.

There are a lot of things I could be doing.

But what I'd rather be doing is spending this moment with my daughter. Because there will only be this moment - this moment when she is learning something new. This moment when she's eating cereal for the first time. This moment when she is smiling and laughing with me. This moment when she's snuggled into my shoulder. Or falling asleep holding my hand. This moment when she wraps her tiny little finger around mine. Or cups her hand under my chin when I'm feeding her. This very moment that she steals my heart a little more.

The housework, the laundry, the will all always be there. And I'll get to it...eventually.

But right now, right now, I'm dropping it all to spend with my sweet girl. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Except maybe to have some additional hours in the day, to sleep document these moments.

OMG...she is so beautiful. I know what you are talking about when it comes to laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc, etc. Kids are the best and they grow up so quickly!! I am hoping that I can get pictures up of Brooklyn by this weekend. Right now we are in survival mode!
