Oh. I wasnt expecting this. ;)
I am not a fan of change, and have been reading your blog since lucy was itty bitty and now you want to go and change everything!?
I kid. I mean, I guess since you ask for our thoughts...the only thing is will the girls think your business became more important since you have a wonderful blog dedicated to them, and now it will be mixed in with your work? Then again, it isnt doing your girls any good for you to have another added stress even if it is just a blog. I can totally see where one combined blog would be totally easier and less time consuming and lets face it, with two littles, you need that!
You could always set up a new blog, with annie and lucy in the header, and every time you post on La-La and you mention the girls or whatnot, a link could be the post on the girls' blog to send people to La-La. That way, when you do find a moment or have a special event, you can dedicate an entire blog post on their own personal blog. And in the end, when the girls are teenagers or whatever, they still have a blog dedicated to just their childhood. Even a post every now and then will add up and it will be such a great thing for them to have!! Just a suggestion! I love your blogs no matter what you do!

i love both blogs...so whatever you do, i'll be reading. you will get your inspiration back even if it's limited to posting only the major milestones, events, etc. of your sweet girls and life. do what's easy and don't stress about a little blog neglect here and there. i have the same goal to take more pics with me in them and your post was just perfect. don't you wish they could always fit so perfectly in your arms!?!

I don't care where you blog as long as you keep blogging. I have been following your blog since you first started and love it. Love the pictures you put on the new blog. Melts my heart. Two beautiful girls with their beautiful mama!

Kelly,

You need to do whatever works for you. One thing to consider though is that it's kind of neat to have a separate blog just for your girls. At any time you can easily take this blog and turn it into a book but if you "mix the blogs," so to speak you won't be able to do that.

But honestly, do whatever works best for you. Keeping a blog should be fun, not a chore.

Kelly, I love the blog about the girls only. I will keep reading if you combine. I have prayed for your safety with each girl and for their settling in. Another thing I can't pull pics up on the photo blog? The pics are about one third the size of a postage stamp.
Whatever you do your girls will forever be in my prayers. Love, Rita

:(

Well, I'm going to miss this blog. I'm afraid you won't write as candidly on your professional blog. But you should ABSOLUTELY do what is best for YOU! I can guarantee I'll following your amazing pictures wherever they are!

Speaking of amazing pictures - the those of you with the girls... my all time favorites! I hope I'm 1/2 as good a mommy as you appear to be!

I guess I need to change my bookmark now.

Erica said...

I can certainly understand why you would want to because I am considering doing the same. I guess I am sentimental which is why I was sad when Emily did the same, but again, totally understandable:)

Do what works best for you and your family.

What did I miss???? I read the entry on your photography blog site and thought the new plan was to start doing couples photography. I didn't get the impression you were dropping this blog! Maybe it's just too late at night and I'm missing a critical piece of data!!

At any rate, good luck with your new venture with your photography.

NeuroMama said...

I am bummed that you aren't going to keep this blog going. Unfortunately, I can't read the other blog because it loads incredibly slowly and then crashes my computer almost every time. Maybe you can do a periodic update here, like if something really big happens. I will miss my daily (or weekly, or whatever you have time for) Lucy and Annie fix. Good luck with your business and enjoy your beautiful family.

vietmomchronicles said...

OK, I found the post that I missed where you talked about merging the blogs! Now all the comments make sense! D'oh.

sadietalk said...

Just wanted to say whatever you decide to do will be fine with me. I understand you wanting to merge the two. I enjoy reading about your girls and I love looking at your pictures that you take of them and of others. You have inspired me to learn more about my camera and take better pics of my daughter. I have read your blog before you adopted Lucy and have enjoyed it. I love how you dress your girls and love your photography style. If I didn't live so far away I would try to get you to take some pics of my daughter when you do your sessions in Arkansas. We live in MS so it is possible we could drive the distance...Take care and I pray you make the decision that is best for you and your family. Beth (@sadietalk on twitter)

Bonny said...

I love your family...been reading the blog since Lucy was teensy...don't care that much for pics of people I don't know though. God bless. Bonny in NM

marsims said...

I know you make decisions that are best for your family and I respect that....but just wanted you to know that I miss your sweet family and your 2 precious little girls. I've followed through both adoptions and feel like something is missing without the updates. Hope all of you are doing well.

Norah said...

I miss reading about the girls and seeing their beautiful pics! It's like when your favorite show ends and it's the series finale! : )

Ruby said...

I really miss your blog. Hope you guys are doing well! :)

Dee said...

Kelly,

I so miss reading about Lucy and Annie. I check your photography blog daily and enjoy looking through your beautiful work but I miss pictures of your girls and hearing all about the sweet things they do and the fun things you do as a family.

so happy that your photography business is really taking off. Continued good luck in your endeavors.

I miss your photos and posts more than you know! Halle-Grace and I both enjoyed logging on and seeing Lucy and Annie! Such amazing little girls! Please post some photos soon :)

Tara said...

I understand the need for a break but I sure do miss seeing Lucy and Annie's sweet faces! I always loved reading your blog. Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Kristen said...

Is it weird that I still visit this blog almost daily just to double check and make sure you've not started posting again!!! Man I miss seeing your posts and the girls!

Hope you all are well!
