Today I finally got some photos hung of William in the house. I know he is 5.5 months old, but we have had a few things going on. I was starting to feel pretty guilty since we have photos of Jack EVERYWHERE. (why not, he is a cute kid) We even have more photos up of the dog than Will. If you have ever been to our house you know that our walls are decorated with mostly photos.
I love photos. The tell such amazing stories about your life, like the trips you have taken, family members born, ones who aren’t here anymore, weddings and everyday life. I walk by the photos all day long, but I still stop and look at them remembering the great days or people pictured. I have moved our digital picture frame into the kitchen now that we have rearranged the furniture again (yes, there are photos of Will on that at least). Jack loves to stand by it and watch them cycle through. He is in most of them, so it is fun for him to tell the story of his life.
As for Will, I guess it must be a 2nd child thing that your photos don’t get displayed until you are almost 6 months old. Being a 1st child I wouldn’t know what that is like (sorry Steff.) I hope that I do better about some of the typical things 2nd children miss, like completing his baby book, taking video of all the fun things he does, saving his school papers and displaying his artwork, since all of it will be cherished items in our house. I do have some room for improvement on the baby book. Jack’s wasn’t completed until he was almost 2.5 years old. I got a lot of grief about that from my friend Sarah.
Anyway, Will is now displayed in our house and I look forward to adding to his collection of photos.
