After months of debate with myself, and a very unsuccessful balancing act, I've decided to stop posting on my personal and private blog, Renae Today. Once I've finished blogging about December 2014, all other posts will be written here at Every Star Is Different. My readers can now look forward to a more intimate look at the daily grind of our lives, the ups and downs, the good and the bad, etc, as well as continued unit studies, tot activities, and more. I'm super excited about this transition. I feel that the purpose of Renae Today has ended. A new phase of our lives has started!
Over the past year, they've become even closer as they've shared the same obsessions at the same time. Bulldozer is now interested in ALL of the things that Dinomite is passionate about. Don't get me wrong, they still have their arguments and fights, but two seconds later they're back to playing, laughing and getting into trouble together.
The picture collage above is an example of just a few moments I captured during the month of January. I can't help but smile every time I look at them.

Part of me wishes I could have enjoyed the celebration more. Preparing for a baptism was much more difficult and stressful than I thought it would be. Thankfully I had hired a photographer to capture some special moments. I knew I would be unable to do so, while playing hostess, and making sure all four kiddos were okay through the baptism and festivities. The idea of a photographer was a very last minute thing. She was unable to be at the actual baptism, until after it was over, but she did come to our home afterwards to try to sneak in a few great pictures. I am so thankful she was willing and able to do so.
It's been a month and I still can't believe Dinomite is 8 years old. It seems like yesterday they put him in my arms, all 5 lbs. 15 oz. and 17 1/2 inches of him. He was so tiny. Time passes so quickly.

That's Renae today!
