I know it’s late (would you expect anything less from me?) but here is a look back at our year! 2012 was a blessed one!
We started the New Year off by having our annual New Year’s Eve party at our house. Lots of friends came, we had a great time, and didn’t take one single picture until everyone left…
We had our big ultrasound and found out that my mom-tuition was right and Baby B was a Boy!
We also had a gender reveal party for our families and everyone was so excited to see that BLUE was the winner 🙂
We started cleaning out the nursery and my mom came and started painting it.
Strangers had started commenting on my belly and asking when I was due 🙂
I turned 30 weeks pregnant (seemed like a huge milestone)!
We got our first bottle calf.
I spent a weekend with my best girlfriends celebrating Baby B and the upcoming wedding of my good friend Ali!
My mother-in-law and sister-in-law threw Robbie and I a couples shower and we had such a great time with family and friends. We also got a lot of great things for Hayden!
We anxiously waited for Baby B to arrive!
I reflected back on some things I learned from pregnancy.
And finally, on May 23rd, 2012 at 39 weeks 5 days, Hayden Robert joined the world!
We spent most of June adjusting to our new life as a family of 3!
Hayden turned a month old!
Hayden was baptized on June 24, 2012.
In July, Hayden celebrated his first 4th of July and at the end of the month I officially went back to work. The majority of the month was spent soaking up every last minute I had with my sweet boy!
I started staying home with Hayden on Wednesdays and am blessed to say that I feel like I have the best of both worlds.
Hayden turned 3 Months old!
Hayden attended his first South Dakota State Fair and my hometown Labor Day Celebration.
I had to go away for my first overnight trip for work and the boys had a successful night at home without me!
I had my first weekend away from Hayden with some of my best girlfriends to say goodbye to Kelly before she moved to Iowa!
We had some fun with our little pumpkin.
Hayden had his first Halloween!
Hayden celebrated his first Thanksgiving!
Hayden turned 6 months old!
We also moved Hayden out of the pack n play in our bedroom upstairs to his crib in his own room!
We were very excited to experience all of the fun Holiday things with Hayden and we started it out by visiting Santa!
Hayden also saw his first snowfall!
We had a wonderful first Christmas!
2012 was a year for the record books. We received our biggest blessing!
We cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store!
