THE KATY’s Facebook adventure begins

The title is right. I have started a Facebook group for this blog. I’m pretty sure it’ll be like a huge book-geek-fx makeup-writing-whatever-loving group so you should join! It’s pretty empty at the moment, but I will be accepting member requests now so we can fill it up! Feel free to post book recommendations, projects you are excitedly working on at the moment, geekery, etc… I just ask that you don’t spam or try to sell stuff on the Facebook page. Authors or other bloggers, feel free to post about new books, events, cover reveals, giveaways, etc…but keep it to one post per day.

I hope to see you there!

My kid is two. Whaaat?!

I know every parent goes through this, but I still am in shock. Or denial. 

Tristan is two. He was born July 8th, 2011 at 5:59PM. He weighed 6lbs 2oz. 

I decided to throw him a Mustache Bash for his 2nd birthday party! Complete with photobooth, mustache pins for the guests, and a mustache cake. It was amazing! I know he won’t remember it and the theme is actually more for me…but it was fun! He jumped into the kiddie pool fully clothed! 

I know next year I will be in denial again, but for now I will hold my baby…err…toddler tight for one more year. 

Love you, Tristan. And happy birthday. 

Love, Mama.

Baby T
This was when he was little…sob
Tristan had a great time at his 2nd birthday party!


Hold Still!

Tristan used to let me take pictures of him. In fact, he would have a huge grin on his face whenever he saw my phone (default camera) come out of my pocket. It was easy to take awesome pictures of him!

Now, not so much. He’s a toddler and therefore always moving. He doesn’t have time for paparazzi! Actually, one day I told him that I was going to take his picture and he started crying. Yeesh.

BUT yesterday I got him! We were playing a new game where I take him blanket, say 1-2-3, and then cover him with it. In the few seconds it takes for him to kick off the blanket I can grab my phone and snap a few of him before he wants to play 1-2-3 all over again. I win this round.

Sure, they are a little blurry, but I’ll take what I can get! Love you, Tristan!


Finally got some smiles!
