Oh dear! Silas is almost nine months old (!), but to look at his baby journal, he hasn't passed five yet. I thought that mamas weren't supposed to lose their steam on keeping detailed baby books until the second or third kid and here I am having a hard time keeping up with number one. For the first four months I have beautifully written journal entries that note all sorts of touching moments. Even at this point, where they are still in the very recent past, I love reading back over them and remembering the little details that are so easily forgotten. I really need to take an afternoon, brew some tea, and just write everything that I remember from those four lost months right now.
Priority for the week: catching up!
