Three years old

It’s a bit hard to fathom at times that our little, tiny baby isn’t a little, tiny baby anymore.

I’m sure that will be the first line on the entry for June 1, 2023 when she turns 16 too.

Bella turned three this year and we decided to throw a real-deal birthday bash that everybody she knew was welcome to come to. The shocker is just how many friends a three-year-old can have. Not everybody came to her little soirée but between kids and adults I think we were pushing 50 people.

There are more details on Bella’s blog but I thought I’d post the full batch of pics we have from the party here as I tend to only post pictures on BellaBlog that have Bella in them.

Twitter and Facebook

This whole blog thing started out as an experiment several years ago.  It’s been quite a learning experience and I think I might have even been on the bleeding edge of publishing by live-blogging my daughter’s birth.  Today live-blogging happens at big events all the time (probably not births, still :) ) and so does sharing to as many publishing feeds as possible.

That’s where I’ve gotten a bit behind the curve on here; April and I would write a post on the blogs and that would be it – if you wanted to see it, you needed to come to the site and see it.  Maybe it’s time to send the posts to where the readers are…

I’ve decided to share this site and our daughter’s site to more of our friends and family by allowing the RSS feed to publish to facebook and twitter as they appear to be holding on longer than your ordinary passing fad.

I’ve always been down on those two services but if I have two blogs talking about personal stuff (obviously I am a complete narcissist, right?) – potentially to complete strangers – I suppose I shouldn’t knock other services that basically do the same thing.

BTW – if you do fall into the friends or family category and you’re on the twitter, you can follow there with @bellarose6107 and @pdl123456
