Your Mimi and I are at a crossroads though. We gave this blog to you as a gift when you were 1 year old and we have explored so much in these weeks, months, and years since then. We THINK that this might be the last year that we write to you on a weekly basis for several reasons. Namely, you will be 5 next year and you will have your own memories at that point. And secondly, we believe that you should have a measure of privacy. I’ve always shared you online with friends and family with censored pictures and captions but at some point I believe that you should have a say in what becomes public. So until your Mimi and I figure out our next chapter (as we both are struggling with our passion for writing, our love of you, our hatred of deadlines, and our confusion with where we go from here), we will theme year 4 as final thoughts… but the takeaway from it all and the common theme for our writing these past few years has been: Document as much as you can of your children’s lives- the good, bad, and really funny moments!
