As if you haven't seen enough photos of my kids...

There's this thing called Instagram that I recently downloaded to my phone. I know, millions of people have had this app for a lot longer than I have, but I just got it and have begun taking the most random photos of my kids and, well, everything about them.

Surprised, aren't you?

Seriously, though, who invents this stuff? Overnight I have become a master photographer, capturing images of them scooting, looking at me, smiling, eating, playing. You name it. And then there are the photos of their shoes, their fake tattoos, their t-shirts, their hair, EVERYTHING.

And it all looks super cool on certain settings. Seriously, I posted a photo of Connor's SHOE, for heaven sake.

I tell myself it's so I can capture the moments forever, but is there even a way to get the photos from Instagram into, say, this blog, which IS, truthfully, supposed to be the stories of their lives that I keep forever and ever?

{Who has time for baby books, people. I have 4 kids. They each have a special memory box in their room and they each get stories written about them for them to pass on from generation to generation. It's the best I can do!}

If there is a way to get those Instantly AWESOME Instagram photos on here, I don't know it. But perhaps I should look into it. Till then, I'll continue "WOWing" myself with my obscure  - but oh-so-professional-looking photos of Libby's finger, Abby's eyebrow, Keely's nails and Connor's shoe. I know you can't wait to see them. I promise to share them on their blog...if I ever learn how!

I wouldn't want to keep you from seeing what a stellar photographer I am. Hell, with that app I can take a photo of a rock and it can look somewhat cool. 

Wish I'd invented it. ;)
