Sheptember: Volume Two

16 November 2020

As a parent and keeper of memories, I can’t do it all. I can’t keep an impeccable baby book, yearly photo book, Instagram photo book, journal, art portfolio, clothing capsule, progressive handprint art, one-second-a-day video, memorabilia scrapbook, schoolwork file, etc., etc., etc. Especially not for multiple children. Especially not while keeping my sanity :)

BUT. I do get to choose a few of those things, and go all in on them. From the beginning, I have gone after these month-in-the-life videos for our kids wholeheartedly, and for that I am grateful. They capture the everyday magic moments I know we will love looking back on, like – my current personal favorite – Shep’s frantic sprint for the porch every time a garbage truck rumbles around the corner. Two has brought an explosion of words, a mellowing of disposition, and the sweetest little exchanges with our boy, and I love that this year’s video captures a bit of that. I hope you enjoy this peek into our life together!

I still remember holding baby Shep at an Articles Club meeting and feeling his little body wriggle as he tried to take everything in! What a buddy :)

I can’t decide if my favorite part of Shep’s video is watching him eat or watching him move. Impressed with the balance on the scooter and his tennis skills! He is precious! Looks like he is keeping up with his older sister no problem! Thanks for sharing these happy moments. It made my day!
