2009 Revisited...and what's on tap for 2010

The rules: Post the first sentence of the first blog entry for every month of 2009. My comments are after each one!

January: Mmm, best tasting ‘medicine’ I’ve ever had! So…I’m sitting here ENJOYING my first glass of wine in a VERY long time.  Remember, I was still nursing Nicholas when I got pg with this baby, so it’s been over a YEAR since I’ve had any alcohol… a year ago I was suffering from constant contractions and worrying…just how long Christopher was going to stay in – not realizing we’d eventually have to induce labor!

February: Because I’ve been asked, I registered again! Several people have asked me if I’ve registered.  I admitted that I thought that was something that you only do for your first (or in our case, first living) child.  So many people have asked me about it…I thought that maybe it’d be a good idea.  Oh, wow.  Thinking about the gadgets/things we’d need with Christopher, when really all we NEEDED was diapers.  Oh well!

March: Thank you Sara! On Friday, my friend Sara (Noah & Dylan’s mom) stopped over with ‘a few things’ for me, from what she said on the phone.  Nicholas is STILL wearing most of those clothes, and now Christopher is too!

April: A brother is a friend given by Nature ~ Jean Baptiste Legouve. I know a lot of people have been waiting to see pictures of the boys together.  I wish we had more of them together in those early days.  Oh, hindsight is 20/20.

May: We’re going green…one bum at a time! As many people already know, when I decided to become a SAHM (Stay-at-home-mom) we knew we needed to think of more ways to scrimp and save.  Still using the Fuzzi-Bunz, though we have only medium sized ones now!

June: Overdue for an update. Wow, I can’t believe it’s been SO long since I posted.  I guess this is something that’s going to continue to happen, especially the busier we get, right?

July: Long overdue updates…pictures too!  WOW!  Time sure flies when you’re having fun…and you have two living children to tend to!  I can’t believe it’s already July 13!  That’s just AMAZING tome.  See June!  LOL!  Christopher was 3 months old!

August: Long over due updates; #1: Our trip to Cincy…I was putting off blogging about our family trip to Cincinnati (over 4th of July weekend) and here it is, over a month later already…so it seems I have a lot of catching up to do.  I OBVIOUSLY need to come up with a new post title for when I need updates!  We had a BUSY summer but we had SO much fun!

September: Top 10 Signs that you’re a parent of a child with food allergies… This was shared by a friend of mine from Scotland…interesting how it doesn’t matter *which* side of the pond you are…food allergies are the same no matter what. Ahh…the life of a parent of a child with food allergies.  Always staying on your toes.  Always.

October: Please vote for my boys – GAP Casting Call contest! Hi Everyone!  Pleading for votes for the contest…never heard anything from GAP…think that is a bad sign?

November:November already?? Updates, and lots of photos, including Halloween! Needless to say, I can hardly believe that it’s November!  Part of the reason why is b/c I had JUST launched Two Angels Photography and was busy with portfolio-building shoots! 

December: December 2009 already? I can’t believe how quickly 2009 has flown by…I will turn 34 in just 23 short days.  Amazing how fast time flies the older you get.  And I STILL can’t believe it’s already 201o!  So much has happened in 2009 – Christopher’s arrival…Nicholas turning 2, and now my photo biz…time seems to be flying by the older we get/the more that we have going on.

On tap for 2010?
