Looking Back

Last night, I was lamenting the fact explaining to Eric that I don't know why I keep updating the blog. With only 25 followers, it seems like I'm doing a lot of work for nothing. I have never complained about this before but last night, Blogger was NOT being my friend and I was frustrated.

"Nothing?" Eric said. "Really?"

"There are people who read the blog, like our parents and his aunts and uncles, who would be sad if you stopped. There are people who read the blog, like Neighbor Ann and your friends, who don't comment but would be sad if you stopped.

There is our SON, who doesn't have a baby book, who would be sad if you stopped."

I gotta admit, he got me with that last one.

So, I decided to go back to the beginning and remind myself WHY I take the time to update the blog.

As I was looking through old posts, Alexander asked me what I was doing. After I told him, he wanted to look so he climbed up on my lap. He and I have spent the past 1/2 hour looking at old posts. I shared stories with him, told him why I chose the pictures I posted, and laughed over his little boy antics. I don't know if I would have been able to capture the same memories without this blog.

Looking back, I'm really thankful I have done this blog.

I'm not done blogging.

Not by a long shot.

Ya, I just started blogging because of you and Michelle. Stopping is NOT an option. Sorry.
