i cannot believe we are already into january, 2012! we spent the last week of december in utah with family and rang in the new year while we were there (although we went to bed by 10PM new years eve because we’re really cool like that.)
for me, 2011 will forever be a year to remember. we welcomed our first baby girl into the world last february and also found out baby #2 is on his or her way… both of those events alone still baffle me. i am a mother! soon, i’ll be a mother of two!? in my little head, this stuff is “pinch me” material.
while i’ve always tried make the most of each day, the days since eleanor’s arrival have seemed particularly special. they are far from perfect and often a bit messy and tiresome, but they are full of such life. each night as i put eleanor to bed, i can’t help but kiss her cheeks two, three, seven more times and say a little prayer of gratitude that she is here, healthy and happy. i wouldn’t trade my days with her for anything in the world. she sure made 2011 a pretty great year for her mama and papa!
i want to thank so many of you for your support and love this past year. i have really enjoyed sharing bits and pieces of our lives here on this blog of mine and your support and kind words along the way have meant so much…so thank you! can’t wait to see what is in store for 2012! happy new year, everyone!
