Overall, this was a great year for us. We welcomed our beautiful son who quickly terrified us with a case of meningitis and watched our gorgeous daughter become a funny, independent 2-year-old with a love of all animals and a hatred for mornings.

I gained 35 pounds with my giant fetus. Then I lost 33 pounds. I think the remaining 2 is in the milk makers.

I have spent about 1000 hours nursing over the past 5 months. Luckily I haven't had to pump much this time because he eats ALOT.

We changed about 15 diapers a day between 2 kids, so my math says that in 2012 we changed 1.3 million. Give or take a few. :). You're welcome, Pampers.

We just conquered our 2nd year as owners of the vet clinic. It was another successful year!

We went to Vegas for Aaron's vet conference, on a cruise to the Caribbean, and to the Dominican Republic for vacation. Learned that Paisley is a great traveler, Also figured out that traveling for 12 hrs while 7 months pregnant is exhausting!!!

I discovered a love for pineapple in my stir fry, chocolate covered pretzels and fudge. I mistakenly decided it wasn't my "thing" until I tried a sample somewhere and realized the error of my ways!

We pretty much haven't seen a movie since early 2010. I also haven't slept since then.

Paisley loves the letter "O" and counting from 7-11. She asks for "more some" when requesting something. Her language has increased a ton!!! She can also successfully jump with both feet leaving the floor. Her favorite things are robots, bubble guppies and trains.

Graham is way into booby juice and snuggling with mama. He loves watching his sister and smiling at anyone who makes eye contact with him.

If I am able to stay awake until midnight this year, it will be the first time to do so since 2010. We crashed out about 11 the last two years!!!

Hope everyone has a safe & Happy New Years!!!


  1. LOL I too learned the error of my ways since I have rejected choc covered pretzels just because I thought I wouldnt like them. But now I do! I also haven't slept or seen a movie..since well...march. I used to watch movies all the time!! :( Oh well. I'll take my princess over movie watching anyways. Happy New Year friend!
