The Last Year Has Been Good to Me

Its my birthday!! 

I am now 28 years old and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

However, I am excited about where I am in life this year.  The last year has definitely been good to me.  Last year we were talking about having a baby (less than two weeks later we found out I was pregnant), Husband was in his surgery rotation (which was terrible) and had various other things on our to do list.  This year we have our Firefly, Husband is staying at home this month and next, and we have checked of a lot of our to do list with plans to accomplish more soon.

Everyone was asking me what I wanted for my birthday this year and I could only come up with one thing.  I want to celebrate with my little family.

Its been a good year.  Here's to another one this year!

Our little Firefly

Little Firefly
Born 30 December 2010
2:48 am
7 lbs 6 oz

A few little facts:
  • He has/had huge feet! He was wearing 6-18 month socks when we came home from the hospital.
  • He never did have that newborn look. He's just always looked like a little toddler.
  • He was alert and able to hold his head up a few hours after he was born.
  • He gave us quite a fright with a decelerating heart beat, but he was just trying to escape the heart rate monitor.
  • Everyone had to ask for pronunciation as to how to say his name. My dad still can't get it right.
  • Epidurals are fan-freakin'-tastic! Seriously. No joking. We went to the hospital only after I reached my pain threshold (all back labor. OUCH) and then after switching to a different hospital! It was my first demand and it was GLORIOUS!
  • We left the hospital after less then 36 hours and were home in time to celebrate the new year.
These pictures were taken when he was 4 days old. He is my favorite picture subject ever and he seems to not mind having his picture taken (so far).

Annnnnnd I'm Back! (hopefully for real this time)

No apologies or excuses. just forgiveness?

Its been a long time and a LOT has happened.

Here's to a concerted effort to post regularly!

We'll start off with some updates...
