Dang. I just happened to notice that I have posted 1499 posts on this blog. Not bad, eh? The first post was on April 1, 2002, so I’ve been keeping this blog for over 8 years now! (Actually, if I’m going to be 100% honest, I don’t think that was my very first post. But kind of. I kept a blog before that, while I was training for the London Marathon, but it wasn’t in a real blog, so those posts never transferred over. I should find them and post them. But that’s off the subject. This is my 1500th official blog post.
Back when I wrote that post, I was 27 years old. Single. Smoked a pack a day. Overweight.
Now I’m married with three kids. Haven’t smoked in over 6 years. Still overweight, but mostly because of the married-with-three-kids thing I mentioned earlier.
Since we’re on a nostalgia kick here, let’s look at some old pictures…
And my NEW car!
Four years ago, we had “prom” at the pub:
Three years ago, I got knocked up, times three:
Well, that was a fun trip down memory lane!
Here’s to 1500 more posts!
What you can’t tell from this not-so-great cellphone picture is that just a few seconds before, Linus was holding Oliver’s hand, which nearly caused me to spontaneously combust from all the cute.
The boys have a new favorite book.
It’s a picture book I put together of their baby pictures up to six months old. I don’t know if they realize they’re the babies in the pictures or not. But maybe they do. If I ask where someone is, they’ll generally point to the right baby. It’s kind of weird. (Heck, in some of the pictures, even I don’t know who is who!)
Guess it’s time to start on the 6 – 12 month book. Yeah. Or 6 – 30 month. Hmm.
I’ve been having a lot of fun taking pictures of the boys lately. Here, lemme share…
Oh, the drama!
I planted some herbs and flowers in pots and put them by the back door so I wouldn’t forget to water them. Now the boys love checking out the plants and watering them whenever we go outside. (Poor plants are probably going to drown.)
I think Miles might end up following Uncle Evan and Aunt Jennifer into Landscape Architecture. He’s the hardest to pull away from them…
