Let’s wrap it up

January was a fog. (Heck January & February were a fog.) January brought new adventures of parents of a grumpy newborn. January brought NO SLEEP for the parents of a grumpy newborn. But January brought us this baby.

We learned how to multitask and I went back to work at only 4 weeks after Miles was born.
February brought my birthday (26) that we celebrated with our first night out of the house alone! On the way to the restaurant we seriously considered skipping dinner and going home for a few hours of rest. We resisted and had a wonderful dinner and never stopped talking about our baby.

February was also the first time Miles ever slept for an extended amount of time. February 11th to be exact. 7 glorious hours! From then on out it was smooth sailing and happier parents.

March was the first time we ever made Miles really laugh.

In April Aaron became an official work at home dad and loved every second of staying home with our little man.
Who learned how to roll this month.
We also took our first airplane ride to California. This more than sums up our trip.
In April I fell more and more in love with these eyes.

And we survived the scaries night of our lives and learned of Miles’s allergies and FPIES

May came and went without much to-do.

We got out a lot as a family and even managed a few hikes.

We celebrated loved ones we’d lost and new family members too.

June brought me a new attitude and appreciation for motherhood. I finally felt like we had this under control and for the first time I wanted to soak it all in and not forget a moment. We celebrated our Dad and the Dad’s in our lives on Fathers day.

And spent a lot of time together as a family outdoors.

July brought my baby teeth and a new found love of spitting.
(Which went great with all the drool brought on by the teeth)

August brought doctors appointment after doctors appt and more bad news. But August also brought a new grown up baby with a stylin hair cut.

September brought us STANDING!

More teeth, and Mommy and Daddy’s 2 year anniversary.
In October we discovered our musical genius could play the Kazoo like no one else.
We also let the wild rumpus begin!

Oh November you were so forgotten. Aaron became a full time stay at home Dad in November. And couldn’t be happier. We took our first trial road trip driving 2 hours from home. It was a disaster. And we were very spent time remembering to be thankful.
December brought CORN! Miles can officially add
corn to the very short listof foods he can eat.
Our little baby turned 1.

And oh yea, this guy came.

And again, We are Thankful!
