31 days, 31 photos

I was laying in bed last night thinking about nothing and everything, when I realized I’ve been completely failing on one of my most important New Years resolutions… TO BE IN PICTURES!

I’m not kidding.  I may have only been in one picture in the last 2 months, and it was just Elijah and I being silly on the iPad.

I really, really want this to change.  And not because I love seeing myself in pictures… it’s because I want them forever.  When my kids grow up I want them to have pictures of not only them, but of their mama and daddy with them… just like I do.

So anyways…

As I said I was lying in bed thinking about all this and realized I should just challenge myself to be in a picture everyday for a few weeks.  And then the best thing happened…. I realized tomorrow (now today) is March 1st!  It’s like starting a new diet… it only feels right to start on the first day of the month.

I like goals, too.  So the goal is to be in one picture each day for the next 31 days.  I’m sure the majority of them will be iPhone self portraits with my kids, but I’m also hoping to crack out the Nikon and have my husband take some decent quality ones.  Speaking of my husband, I need more pics with him.  I’ve got tons from when we were dating and first married, but once the kids came they seemed to hog the camera and we get left in the dust.

So to get the ball rolling… here’s today.

Another selfie of me and my snotty nose Davey.

While writing this, I’m realizing this may also help me shower more often… never a bad thing, right?

Ohh, and don’t worry.. I won’t be bombarding the blog daily with my photos, but I’ll do a round up post on the 31st!

Anyone wanna join me?  Jeanne?

Our kids will thank us later.
