When I look back over our year, I feel so incredibly blessed. Our girls have gone from babies to toddlers. It's such a joy to watch them grow!
In 2011 we:
Played in the snow
We celebrated a first birthday!
We learned to walk.
I broke up with the breast pump.
We started wearing pigtails (some days it's still like trying to herd cats, but the cuteness factor makes it very worthwhile) and figured out how to use smart phones.
We went on many grand adventures, sailing the Seven Seas in our pirate boat.
We went swimming in the backyard.
The girls weaned, which was bittersweet for Mama.
We went on our first ever family vacation to visit our friends.
And were photographed by the very talented Melissa!
We went apple picking and pumpkin picking for the first time.
The girls discovered their love of gardening.
We (barely) survived the transition from two naps to just one nap.
Probably the biggest accomplishment of 2011, for me, and the biggest change over all, was to watch the girls learn sign language. We're still learning too! I've stopped counting, but I know they have well over 100 signs. It's so wonderful for them to be able to communicate with us, and for us to know what they're saying!
I can't wait to see what 2012 will bring us.
