oh Mr. New Year...

2011 has flown by, sadly.  It was a year of falling in love with a new baby boy, celebrating our first year of marriage together, and attempting to readjust our lives and begin our own family.  Every new year I look back and wonder how it went by so quickly, but having a baby really speeds things up.

Witnessing the first year of a child's life is like watching a movie on fast forward - every week there is a difference, every day there is enormous growth.  It helps me appreciate every short day, look forward to the quiet moments I get to spend with my little family, and be grateful for our happiness.

I keep telling myself that 2012 will be the year I "catch my breath," maybe slow down the major life events?  I'm sure having a toddler, possibly beginning Graduate courses, and having Tyce in school and work full time will keep us busy enough!


  1. Every single one of these pictures is amazing!! (That's right tyce, I'm talking about how good looking you are in every single one of these!!) Love this post!!

  2. Omgosh, I love the hats! That's so cute! You're right, it does feel faster and it doesn't slow down! Take lots of pics because you'll love looking back and remembering them:)2012 sounds pretty busy!
