I think after you have children your life just goes by so much faster. I, like so many other people, can’t believe that this year is already over. It was filled with lots of births, firsts, lasts, and soo many giggles.
Beware cute picture overload after the cut.
My best friend since I was 12 and I were preggo at the same time!
Papa passed away and I went to my first funeral. We miss him so much everyday but I am so glad Dexter got to meet him before he passed.
My niece Avery was born.
Dexter found out about pudding. He also got a new room and he got his big boy bed. He also started sleeping through the night!
Dexter made a million messes. This was one of his more adorable ones.
I decided to start sewing again.
My parents came to visit and took Dexter to the train museum and the Okefenokee swamp. My carrier addiction began with my first BabyHawk. Dexter and I played at the beach almost everyday.
Thomas and Amber got married
Dexter and daddy re-seeded our yard. And Dex did not mind getting dirty. We went to the Nichols family reunion again. This was the first year Dexter really had fun with Easter. I loved watching him run around picking up eggs! I started getting really worried about not playing with Dexter alone enough so I took him somewhere fun every week to prepare for brother!
