To Catch up or Just Start Over....

So I took many months off from blogging - I just couldn't find the time to do it and I lost track of it all together.  I don't know how people are able to update their blogs every day - it's so time consuming. 
So, since the last time I blogged lots of things have happened.  The biggest one being I had a baby on June 29th and I am now the mother of two beautiful little girls.  Zoe is now going on almost 22 months - she will be TWO in December!  I am just not sure where the time has gone and what I can do to get it back! 
I have been debating if I go back and try to update from the last 8 months or just scrap it and start fresh from Ava's birth.  That would be the easiest way to do it - but that kind of hoses Zoe from having a nice little memory keeper for the second year of her life.  Besides, I document enough with pictures I could probably go back and highlight some things from the last several months and then get back up to speed. 
I went to update Ava's baby book the other night and decided to pull Zoe's out and see where I was at on hers too - I stopped at 6 months - what a horrible mother.  Although I have tried to rationalize it by thinking that if I was spending all of this time updating a blog and her baby book than I wouldn't have been enjoying her so much - I would be doing those things while I could be playing with her or I would be up way too late trying to do them when she was sleeping and then be tired when we were together.  Whatever, I just know that I would like to get back on it - all of it - the blogging and the baby book updating.  My girls deserve it!  And I can do both and still be a very active mother - there are women out there doing it every day!
Besides, if I had something like this to look back on now that I am raising my own kids it would be so great.  I recall things from my childhood but I certainly don't recall it the way this will help my girls remember.  We have a whole new world of technology at our fingertips and I am going to use it to the best of my ability. 
I am not a writer - I have no plans of becoming one, nor do I think I want to be one or would be any good at it.  I just know that I want to have something around for my girls to read when they are older to recall some of the great times we had when they were babes. 

So, here we go again - fresh start - but first I am going to update with some of the things we did with Zoe during her second year and during my second pregnancy.
