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.
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.
