Started off the year with a small, un-mobile baby.
Watched him grow at rapid speed.
Then he finally slept through the night, after eight long months.
Struggled a bit with my new mom image.
Considered baby number two.
Welcomed identical twin nephews to the world.
Brady cut his first two teeth. Went through lots of motrin.
Shot my first wedding.
Removed him from my boob.
Lost my job. Stressed a lot.
Brady learned to walk.
He turned one.
We went on our first family trip and visited the zoo.
Played outside a lot.
Went to the pool.
Read tons of books. All of the childrens variety.
Left my baby overnight for the very first time.
He chipped his tooth.
Went to the dentist.
Wondered how we made something so beautiful.
Spent our anniversary at the emergency room and a poor baby with second degree burns.
Taylor Swift concert.
Accepted a new job.
Had to start leaving Brady 9 hours a day. Cried a ridiculous amount.
Felt really sick and didn’t know why.
Peed on a stick.
Got the results.
Doctor’s appointments and ultrasounds.
The most fun Christmas ever.
Said “see you later” to 2011 and begged 2012 to be kind.

Changes in the last few years have asian singles in america https://cherylhearts.net/sites-like-sniffies/ made sites similar to sniffies a bit more like Tinder (they’re owned by the same company), focusing more on swiping and eliminating the ability to message a user without matching with them first. Online daters can still send a message — it just won’t show up in the recipient’s inbox unless you match. Because who doesn’t enjoy sending a thoughtful message to someone who might never see it?
