2011....it's been a great year!

What a difference a year makes.... last New Years I was ready to throw 2010 in the trash and start over. This year, I look back happily at 2011 because we brought home our baby girl and I learned so many things about myself.

~  I am stronger than I give myself credit for.  I can give myself injections, get blood taken 3 times a week, carry a baby to term and even give birth.

~  I am a good mom.  At least I think I am and that's all that matters, right?  If Emily is crying, 9 times out of 10, I am the one who can calm her down.

~  I can move 10 hours from my family and friends and be ok.  I miss everyone terribly, but as long as I have Steve and Emily- I am happy.

~ I can go into public with spit up on my shirt, no makeup, and greasy hair and not give a shit (this is probably because of sleep deprivation but whatever).

~  I can function on 2 hours of sleep if my baby needs me to.

As I sit here on the eve of 2012, I look forward to the new year and I can't wait to see what it will bring for our family.

Happy 2012 everyone!
