Another year in the books

Well it's the last day of 2012 and this year has probably been one of the quickest of my life. It's true what they say about having a baby...the days are long but the years are short. I'm not going to do an official 2012 recap because well...I don't have the time or frankly the motivation. That's the beauty of the archives.

If I had to sum up 2012 though, it would be the year of the baby. When I look back on this year as a whole I will think about how it was Hunters first year of life and my first year as a mother. Everything else that happened this year, to be honest, is a blur. I don't know if that's good or not.

The cool thing about having a New Years baby is that even though he's only one year old, as of tomorrow he will have been alive during 3 different years already. Granted he only got to experience a day and a half of 2011 but it still counts right? This year will most definitely be remembered as one of the most challenging, exhausting and happiest of my life. In fact the past two years have been fantastic, which scares me a bit, with every high there has to eventually come a low. But I'm hoping the low won't be 2013 and we'll continue to have our health and happiness through the new year. The past few years have been busy with getting married, buying a house, getting a dog, pregnancy and having a baby. I'm actually really hoping for no major life events in 2013. I just want to enjoy my little family and savor every moment.

And as for what my plans are this New Years? Well I can tell you it won't be anything as exciting or scary as last year when I spent midnight on New Years Eve in the NICU with my day old son. Though he's still my cutest NYE date ever (sorry Kristian).

After an exhausting week of FIVE Christmas celebrations and Hunters birthday party (which was far more work than I anticipated) and staying up late to watch the Redskins beat the Cowgirls I'm actually planning to be in bed early tonight. Yes I'm old and lame and perfectly okay with that!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year to you and your family! I know just what you mean...this was definitely the Year of the Baby in my house too and it's a little scary that you can't remember anything else. :)

He looks so cute in his little tux and I can't believe he's a year old already. I hope you guys have the most wonderful 2013 and I'm so glad we kept in touch this year (even when I wasn't blogging!)

Definitely a similar year here... the year of the baby!!! :) It has really been all about her this year, and that is fine by me. What a great year it has been. Love the photos of Hunter on his first NYE... I actually remember when you posted them the first time around and remember thinking how adorable he is. That was before I had my own blog or left comments though!! Hope you and your family have a wonderful new year's!!! :)

I'm old and lame too - there's nothing better than getting to bed early some nights.
