It’s 11:38pm. Two hours and 38 minutes ago I was so tired, I determined I was done working for the night. I could barely walk up the stairs. Now I’m wide awake and annoyed that I can’t sleep.

So I decided to blog. I dislike blogging without pictures, but it will have to do tonight.

I’m sorry I haven’t been a consistent blogger. The guilt of it weighs heavy, as if I’ve skipped church two weeks in a row. One week I can handle. But not two. Never twice in a row.

I have good news! Miss B kissed me today. Like big ol’ sloppy kisses on the mouth! She’ll be 18 months old next week and she’s never kissed me. Ever. It’s been no end of consternation for me. It’s not that she goes around kissing everyone else. She just doesn’t kiss. Silly girl. I shouldn’t be surprised. This is the same child who refused to hold her own bottle until she was 14 months old. She does things at her own pace, of her own accord.

But tonight, she was sitting on my lap and I asked her for a kiss {like I do one zillion times a day} and she started kissing me over and over again! I shrieked and laughed and hollered and then dragged her into the kitchen to show everyone. But she refused to dole out any more kisses the rest of the night.

Last week was my busiest week ever with Simply b. I completed 12 photo shoots. They were all fantastic. I love taking pictures. What I love most is when my clients {and others} love their photos. I’m greedy for comments. Words of affirmation make me feel loved. I adore hearing from grandmas and grandpas! That’s the best! Tonight a mom left a heart felt comment on her family’s pictures that I posted and I almost cried from her sweet words! It truly makes it all worth it! I’ll still be working until the new year, but nothing like the pace I’ve been keeping.

I’m taking the next 3 days off too. I still have some editing to do, but I’m going to let it be and just enjoy my family.

Sam and I are going to make pies tomorrow. I love cooking with Sam-a-lam. He’s so eager to help. And with his braces he seems so grown up. He and I have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Last night Jake took Josh and Jacob to Harry Potter and Sam stayed home with Miss B and I. While I was editing he sat on the couch near me and watched the classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie on Netflix. He was wearing headphones and every once in a while he’d yell something at me.

Mom! Look, it’s Veruca Salt!

Mom! Look! He just found the coins!!

Mom! It’s the EXACT part we’re at!!

It made me smile to listen to him.

Are you ready for Christmas? I am not.

I need to get on that. With as busy as we’ve been and the mild temperatures we’ve had {48* and no snow!}, it’s hard to believe it’s November and not September. Jake will be gone most of December. He’s heading down to South America again. I’m keeping fingers crossed he makes it home for Christmas.

He’s making Miss B a play kitchen. It is the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. I’m not sure if it will be done for Christmas or not. But I cannot wait to show it to you. You will be thrilled. I promise.

I’m going to try and go to sleep now.
