Katie, Then and Now


This afternoon, I was waiting for the boys to put their Halloween costumes on so that I could take their pictures.  Yes, I know that Halloween was a month ago, but for some reason, we forgot to take pictures that night, and we just never got around to doing it until today.  At least we didn’t wait until after Christmas!

Anyway, while I was waiting I snapped the bottom picture of Katie in her bed.  For comparison, I went looking for an older picture of her in the bed.  Look at how much she has grown!  The first picture is from January 2006. 

When we got her, she was only about 2 pounds, so even by January she had grown a ton.  Some day soon, I post a retrospective — Katie’s First Year.  I probably have more pictures of her than I do of my children….OK, not really, but she is just so photogenic!

Even though my list over there on the right says that I’m working on book number 2, I have to admit that it really ought to say "Avoiding working on book number 2."  (Book number 1 is called Meandering Magic and can be found on my website).

I’m not really sure why I’m procrastinating about it.  I pretty much know exactly what’s going to be in it.  Based on the success of the first one, I’m pretty sure this one will do well, also.  I know what I did wrong (and right) with the first one, so I have a good idea of what to do this time. 

I’ve also made promises about when it will be ready, so I can’t put it off too long, if I don’t want to break those promises.

I also know exactly how much drawing and editing I have to do get this one ready, and I suspect that that is exactly why I’m putting it off.   About 2 weeks ago I made myself work on it every day for an hour.  That lasted about 2 days.  Starting tomorrow, I think I’d better start that again, or it’ll never get done!
