My blog inspiration

I never know what to write until I read Sabrina's blog. She's my blogger inspiration. She is amazing. Did you know she actually takes a picture on the day of her children's birthday each month. I think what that means is that if her child was born on December 8, she takes a picture on January 8, February 8, etc. I, on the other hand, haven't even had Amirah's six month pictures taken and she is 8 months old. This is my first child. Shouldn't I have done this by now? I blame it on working outside the home, but really it's just my procrastination in overdrive.

Here's what's happening in our world:
1. Ysmaille is an official U.S. citizen as of October 8. Have you noticed how many times the numberal 8 appears in this blog so far? Count them. Six.
2. Amirah is almost walking. Our little peanut is moving along furniture and standing by herself (but only for a second or two at a time).
3. I made lots of applesauce, which means I feel totally domestic. I also have a 1/2 bushel of apples left over. I see lots of apple crisp and apple pie in my future.


  1. I almost wished I had never started the once a month picture thing (you explained it so well) because now I feel badly for missing a month. We need to get our girls together again soon. Congratulations to Ysmaille! Hearing that I inspire you make me realize that I may need to be a little more real in my blogging. :) Have a great day!

  2. You are a great Mom and blogger! I love how transparent you are when you write. Amirah is a lucky girl to have you for her Mom.(I like the new background!)love you!
