The Layout

Like the new look? I do! I've been wanting to change it for a while now I just hate taking the time to change it. Now that I have I love it. I didn't think I was going to like having our picture at the top (it's really big) but I do. My favorite part is that when you open the page and see our picture, Gideon's picture is the next thing that catches your eye, at least mine. It makes me feel like he's still part of the family, which he is and always will be, but it almost feels like he's in the picture with us. It's also why I liked this wordless wednesday so much, as Susie said, two of our three were represented, Gideon's feet (Seth's tatoo) were in the picture with Jericho.

The only thing that bugs me about having Gideon's picture there is that normally I would put Seth's picture first, then Gideon's, then Jericho's. In my book my husband comes before my children. Some of you might think I'm crazy for thinking this let alone saying it out loud but that's how it will aways be for me. I got to chose Seth. Him and I were together before any of our children came to be and we will be together after all our children are gone. But in the case of my blog and putting pictures where I did, I felt that since Seth was in the big picture I could put Gideon first on the side bar. (I know you understand babe, but know that you come before our children!)

Seth told Jericho to push when she was on the potty and the result of that is the picture of her on my side bar. It's also the result of wearing a piggy tail the day before, but mommy not taking the time to either put it in again, wet her hair down, or give her a bath. Poor kid it's a good thing she's cute!

Of course my hot hubby is also on the side bar. I love that man!

I'm trying to find a recent family picture, the one up top is when Jericho was 9 months old, which was 9 months ago. That one is staying, but I was hoping to put a more recent one on my side bar. Problem is that I somehow erased all our Christmas pictures *gasp* I know I thought the same thing. I don't know what I did and I don't know how to fix it, if it's even fixable. We haven't taken a family pic since then. Looks like we'll be taking some family pics here pretty soon. Ha! Anyone want to guess if that will really happen anytime soon.

Love the new layout Tarah - I love the retro print and bright colors! And let's hope you can find your family Christmas pictures... bummer when computer stuff happens like that!

You can recover your old pictures off your memory card, as long as you didn't reformat it. I did the same thing by mistake and found a way to get them back! :)

I'm not sure if you are open to suggestions or not...I just popped over from reader to see the new layout and I love the picture on the top. My eyes were also drawn to Gideon next. I know who he is but there is no explaination for new people that find you. I would suggest a link to find his story.
