I have to admit that I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with it once we added another little one into the mix.
And that BIT would grow up wondering why there were a million pictures of her sister’s first years and only 3 of hers. (As was the case with me. If there are 1000 pictures of my brother as a kid and 100 pictures of my sister, there are 10 of me. And they all have Michael and Jessie in the frame as well. Not that I’m bitter or anything…)
I was bound and determined that this would not be the case. And it hasn’t been.
It hasn’t really been that hard to snap two pictures a day instead of one. What has also made it easier is that if I get a good picture of the girls together, I count it as my picture for the day for both of them. (This only proved slightly problematic when I was making BIT’s calendar and couldn’t find her picture for certain days and I would have to go look in LB’s monthly folders to find the joint photos. Yes, I have a crazy picture filing system. Yes, I’m slightly anal-retentive. No, I don’t need help for these issues.)
There were still some days that we missed, but not as many as I would have thought.
The Littlest Brewster’s Calendar:
The DreadBrewer and I have both wondered aloud just how long I’ll keep doing these and the truth is I don’t know. Looking back on them is so much fun for us and the grandparents, not to mention feeding the Littlest Brewster’s self-obsession. (She’s a total narcissist, but I think all toddlers are.) And honestly, it’s not that much work for something we all get so much enjoyment from, so I think I’ll keep it up as long as I can.
So look for another calendar post next January!
