2013 in Review

We are about to embark upon a brand new year.  In my last years review, I had a great feeling about 2013.  I just knew it was going to be filled with great things.  And?  Boy was I right.  Here's a recap of our family in one years time.


I received a sweet little surprise from my boys.

I shared how I met my husband, and we prepared to try {again} for baby #2.


We had our first ever parent/teacher conference for Lincoln.  I shared our struggles with potty training


We took Lincoln bowling for the first time ever.  It was a huge hit!

And apparently, all I had to do was post about our potty training struggles for my son to be potty trained practically overnight!! I also shared some silly things Lincoln had been doing.  We visited Jared's brother in Tennessee, and I recapped our visit!


We shared our big news, that we were expecting baby #2! I shared what a wild imagination Lincoln has, and I became a soccer mom!


When our beach house vacation plans fell through, we booked a last minute vacation to Disney! I also entered the second trimester in my pregnancy, and was finally feeling better!


I recapped our Disney vacation.

We remembered and celebrated the life of an amazing woman. And, we found out Lincoln was having a LITTLE BROTHER!!!


I turned 19 weeks pregnant.

I shared how important it is to be in the moment with your children.


I turned 32, and celebrated my parents. I turned 24 weeks pregnant, and recapped our vacations at Hershey Park and Sesame Place.


I entered the third trimester.  I recapped our last getaway as a family of three!

Lincoln had his first day of preschool for the year.  He also had a surprise for me in his backpack a few weeks later!


I turned 32 weeks and then suddenly 34 weeks pregnant; and we learned we were having another big boy!

It also seemed like the closer I approached my due date, the more unwanted advice I received.


November was a very busy month! I recapped our very Batman Halloween and I turned 37 weeks pregnant!

I shared my anticipation of meeting our second son, and wrote a letter to my first born son.

I did my last ever pregnancy update, at 39 weeks!

And we welcomed our second sweet son, Avery David into the world!


I recapped Lincoln's fourth birthday bash and shared Avery's birth story.  Our little family of four is complete!

And then, in the blink of an eye, our sweet Avery turned one month old!

We had a wonderful Christmas, celebrating with family...and I promise to be writing about that soon.

2013 has been one heck of a year!  So many wonderful things happened!  2014 sure has its work cut out for it...2013 will definitely be hard to beat! But, I'm looking forward to all the amazing things that will be happening with our little family. 

So here's to a New Year!  I hope our lives are all filled with many special memories and sweet moments!!
