We decided it was time for the blog to grow up a little. Our old design didn't quite fit with Evan's toddlerhood. It's kind of like graduating from a nursery to a "big boy room"- this is our "big boy blog." I was excited to see the new design, but then I got this feeling of sadness as if I was packing up Evan's baby clothes. I hurried to make sure Jeff had the old design saved, and asked if he'd print it out for me...It will eventually become part of the scrapbook I have yet to start.
I was surprised by how nostalgic I got over the new design and I believe that feeling really speaks to what this blog has been to us. VerWaynia has been my journal through this thing called parenthood. Not only has it documented Evan's short life, but it's also, in a lot of ways, documented my growth as a result. I think I've been more honest than I ever set out to be and I'm so glad. It's only fitting that if we're all growing, the blog should grow with us.
You'll notice some of Evan's favorite things displayed in the header: books, trucks, cars, eating, and of course, the pepper! We hope you like it.
