last year around this time josh had said to me, “2010 is going to be our best year yet, naomi.” since last december had proven to be our hardest month yet, i was kind of skeptical and sad and wasn’t sure if he was saying that to just try and cheer me up. but i decided to believe him anyway and move forward with a positive attitude. fortunately, 2010 has proven to be a lovely year, the best part being we found out we are expecting! and now, 2011 promises to be even better with our first little baby due any day in the next few weeks! we are scared and nervous to become parents, but also feel really blessed that we’ve finally been given the opportunity and i cannot wait to share the new year with a new little baby!
happy new year everyone! may it be our best year yet, for everyone!
we checked out the annual holiday exhibit at the u.s. botanical garden with josh’s parents yesterday. the exhibit included a number of different railways and trains, historic landmark buildings in d.c. and others around the world made out of plant materials like tree bark which blows my mind. it was impressive.
we had a lovely christmas here in d.c. with josh’s parents. i love spending this time of year with family and friends, thinking of our savior, eating good wonderful rich food, finally having a valid excuse to be gifted baby things and enjoying the d.c. snow “dusting” (we’ll have our blizzard one of these days…at least i hope. in the meantime, i’ll just keep looking at snow photos from last year here,here,here and here.)
hope you had a merry happy christmas spent with loved ones and good food, too!
p.s. baby didn’t show up on christmas! it was my only christmas wish…. besides wishing for a healthy baby and uneventful birth. :) baby, you can come any day you want now! we’re ready and waiting!
