A year off…

Emmy's bathIn her most recent photo after bath time, I’d like to introduce you to Emberleigh Susan. She is one of many reasons I have been on hiatus for the past year. I will share her birth story soon, for I will be doing my best to stick to the commitment of posting once a week. Emberleigh, or Emmy for short, blessed us with her presence on December 5, 2012 at 12:14 AM.

 

Here are a few other highlights from our year off…

June 8- Evan and I celebrated our fourth year of marriage and I lost my mother to cancer… yes on the same day. I officially became a stay-at-home-mom.

July- Lots of trips to visit Dad/G-Pa at the lake and Caed started crawling

August- Evan and I discovered we were expecting… again…at 20+ weeks. Baby’s estimated due date is 12/8/12, 13 months and one day after Caed’s birthday! We also took our first family camping trip.

September- Caed was hospitalized for 3 days due to an infection, thought to be salmonella contracted through dog food.

October- Caed’s first Halloween! We went as pirates and Caed was a parrot on Daddy’s shoulders.

November- Caed celebrates his first birthday!

December- Emmy is born and has her first Christmas!

January- Caed starts walking and Emmy keeps us awake at ungodly hours.

February- Caed pooped in the tub and Emmy smiles at Evan and me.

March- We celebrated my brother’s birthday and Caed had his first teppanyaki experience. Emmy rolled over!

April- I turned 29, we hiked to Lonesome Lake in Franconia, NH, and Emmy was baptized.

Phew!!

There you have it, folks. Next week I’ll be back to talk about Emmy’s birth story… and how, for 2 months, I thought I had a hernia.
