HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I KNOW ITS BEEN FOREVER SINCE I'VE POSTED ANYTHING SO I HAVE ALOT TO CATCH UP ON BUT FOR NOW LETS HAVE A LITTLE REVIEW OF SOME THINGS THAT WENT ON IN '09 sorry no pics :/ WITH HAVING A BABY AND GOING THROUGH 'THE FIRST YEAR' IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THIS YEAR HAS FLOWN BY!
GREY- WAS BORN, GOT TEETH, A FIRST HAIRCUT, ROLLED OVER, SAT UP, ENJOYED SOLID FOODS, STARTED CRAWLING AND WALKING (in the same day), SAID HIS FIRST WORDS, AND NOW CAN WALK UN-ASSISTED ALL IN WHAT SEEMED LIKE A FEW DAYS. HE IS NOW ALMOST A YEAR AND I CANT BELIEVE HOW BIG HE HAS GOTTEN!
LAW- HAS BECOME AN AMAZING BROTHER WHO LOVES TO HELP, PLAY, TALK, AND SING WITH HIS LITTLE GREY GOOSE. HE'S LEARNED SO MUCH THIS PAST YEAR; GOING TO BED WITHOUT A BINKI, DANCING, SINGING AND MEMORIZING A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SONGS (TONIGHT'S GONNA BE A GOOD NIGHT & I LOVE TO SEE THE TEMPLE ARE SOME OF HIS FAVORITES), TAKING NAPS W/O A BINKI, A WHOLE SLEW OF NEW WORDS (incl. some we're not so proud of :P lol), to recognize all the letters of the alphabet, counting to ten, recognize and draws some shapes, going #1 and #2 in the potty -although not fully trained, HE'S QUICKLY LEARNED THE 'RULES OF THE HOUSE' AND THAT HE DOES NOT LIKE BEING IN TIMEOUT, HE HAS CONCURRED GOING TO NURSERY WITHOUT CRYING (however he occasionally cries when we take him home!) AND ONE OF THE BEST THINGS HE HAS LEARNED HOW TO MAKE AND PLAY WITH FRIENDS!
COLE- FINISHED ANOTHER YEAR OF SCHOOL, TAUGHT MANY CONCEALED CARRY CLASSES, DODGED A FEW ROUNDS OF LAY-OFFS AT WORK, WAS PUT IN CHARGE OF SOME AWESOME PROJECTS AT WORK, HAS DONE WELL AND ACCOMPLISHED A LOT WITH HIS OWN BUSINESS, HUNTED ELK FOR THE 1ST TIME (and shot none), HAD AND HAS SOME PRETTY COOL EXPERIENCES WITH HIS CHURCH CALLING, AND HAS TAKEN ON ANOTHER NEW ROLE IN LIFE -but I don't know if I'm supposed to talk about it.
AND ME - WELL I'VE BEEN HERE FOR IT ALL :D
