Mommy & Me Mondays

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?

Hosted by Krystyn


When Krystyn started Mommy and Me Mondays I thought it was genius. Most of the time us mommies are the ones taking the pics, and we hardly ever actually get in the shot. Mommy and Me Mondays challenges you to get in front of the camera with your kiddos and share a cute story too. Genius, I tell you!
*
Okay, so here is my story. You know that beautiful header pic I have up at the top of my blog? Go ahead, scroll up and take a look if you like. Yeah, that one. I can't seem to part with it. I love it. I don't want to take it down. But, as you can see, Grace is not in that picture. I feel very badly about that. I figure that come spring I can take another picture like it with all of my kiddos, but until I do I can not bear to part with this one. I have to leave it up there. So, because Grace is not in the header picture, I decided to take this picture
and save it as my profile pic. That way all of my kiddos are displayed prominently on my blog. Is that fair, or what? I think so. And this mama is all about fair. Whew! Problem solved. For now.

I don't blame you one bit. That header picture is terrific. I love the profile one of you and Grace as well. Great way to balance it. :)

I think you are Solomon in your genius and justice;)

I think it's the sweetest picture! :-) How's adjusting to 4...easier than adjusting to 3?

I love both your header pic, and your profile pic!

Mom of the Twinkies and Tot! said...

Love her hat and the outfit! I wanted it for my girls but they didn't have two in the same size when I went to buy it!

Krystyn said...

Oh, that bright pink looks so good on both of you. We're all about equal "face" time here, too, so I totally get it!

What a cutie that Grace is!

What a great idea! I love the picture. Now I just have to wait to have better internet connection and a working camera and so forth! Then I can join in on the fun.

Hilary said...

I think it's a very clever idea. I can't blame you one bit for not wanting to part with your header pic. It's a beauty. So is your profile photo. Nicely done!

Gorgeous photo! I love her hat--and my Madelyn has those same socks--I love them!

That sounds -and looks too -like a very equitable solution to your dilemma. And the picture of you and Grace is gorgeous!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Totally fair! I love that header pic too.

WILLIAM said...

I love the header picture too. Maybe you could photoshop a shadow baby in there.

I had noticed your profile picture had changed and LOVE it. You both are gorgeous. I love that header photo too, it'll be hard to beat that one.

LOVE it and i understand your header picture is very cool. You've solved it! This picture of you two is adorable. She makes my lips pucker up--sweet little baby sugar....

Good thinking! I just love the header, and this photo of you both is just adorable!

you all are tooooooo cute. seriously.

Dianna said...

Makes perfect sense to me ;)

Yes, us Mommies need to get into more pics with our kids. I'm usually the picture-taker and by the looks of our photos, my Hubby is a single parent.

The two gals in your house are BeaUtiful my dear*!*

Shoot. My daughter's been in my profile pic for a couple of years now. Totally fair.

Love her hat!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
