Howdy! Welcome to the Thompson blog! Those of you who know me personally will laugh at the idea of me keeping a blog since until Brian got his new Blackberry a few weeks ago, I was on top of my game if I checked my e-mail twice a month. However, Brian really encouraged me to start this up for the enjoyment of our friends and family who aren’t able to see us (that is, Daniel) on a regular basis. Hopefully we’ll occasionally delve a little deeper than Daniel’s newest tricks and pictures though.

A word about our title—I was recently talking with my good friend Tess, and she repeated to me a piece of wisdom that a friend of hers had received when her children were small. “The days are long, but the years are short.” Brian and I discussed this idea several times over the next few days and thought it would be a good name for our family blog since it pretty much nails our life right now. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade staying home with Daniel for any other daily task in the world, but if he has a cold or (heaven forbid) a stomachache, it can seem like forever until Brian gets home. So there you are. Here are some cute pictures that span the past three months.
