GOODBYE 2012 & HELLO 2013

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

WOW!  What a year. I can't believe how fast it flew by.  2012 was full of excitements and happenings for us.  Emma was born in January as a preemie and the months that followed were a hectic blurry couple of months.  Daily trips to the NICU for over a month, followed by challenging couple of months with barely any sleep. I would be lying if I said it was a fun year. Many doctors appointments, examination to make sure everything was OK.   It was challenging, but so very worth it.   It was rewarding in way I could have never imagined it.  I learned what unconditional love is.  I also learned how out of my control things  can get, and as hard as it was at first I'm learning to let things happen as some things are just out of our control.   I also learned how precious these babies are, and how blessed we are to have Emma.  Although small she is perfectly healthy!  Seeing other mom's in the NICU definitely opened my eyes that we didn't have it that bad.  It helped to dissolved some of the anger I had about my issues at first.   I learned to better manage my time and be more organized in order to get things done with her. 


And who could forget a lot of firsts that Emma had this year?   First smile, teeth, crawling, clapping, waiving, sayin dada & our first Christmas together.   I think these were the best part of my year!   2012 was a wild year, but I think I am a better person because of it.  And now as we enter 2013 I don't know what lies ahead, but I vow to make the best of it.   I will say I love you more, spend & shop less, turn my iPhone off a little more, give more and just do more of the things that really matter in this life!
