Happy New Year!

1 Jan

Oh my…how the time flies. Has it really been two weeks since I last posted? Is it really 2012?!

Hmmm…maybe it’s time for a December holiday recap and a look ahead to the 2012 year.

December Holiday Highlights

1. Hubby and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary at a wonderful restaurant called Oceanique. It was pricey (jawdroppingly so) but our marriage is worth celebrating. College savings plan be damned!

2. Henry, Deron, and I trekked to Arizona for Christmas and enjoyed the warm air, carne asada burritos, and starry nights. We relaxed, slept in, and ate a mountain of food. It was magical. And I think it’s official…we have the best family in the whole world.

3.  Henry learned to crawl. For reals. There is no stopping this kid now.

4. My 29th birthday was marked with a shopping spree (How does Sephora gain such control over me?), Snickers pancakes, and even more relaxation.

5. We were the lamest New Year’s celebrators ever and went to bed at 8:30pm. Boo.

What an enjoyable, entertaining, and easy holiday season! Thanks everyone for the perfect presents, the big hugs, and for doting on Henry. We feel very loved right now.

A look ahead to 2012

1. We eagerly await the move to the new apartment in a couple weeks. More space! Less junk! Babyproofing!

2. Deron applies to become a firefighter captain early this year and will finish the process by May. Good luck hubby!

Plus, our little family has a few goals for the upcoming year:

  • SEE MORE FAMILY, MORE OFTEN. Brother bear and his lovely will (hopefully) visit in early spring. We hope to coerce the Grandmas out here as much as we can. And we fly to Florida in April. Yay!
  • BE POSITIVE.  Less whining about work, Chicago, busy-ness, blah, blah, blah. Focus on the good stuff. There is SO much good stuff.
  • MAKE A COMFORTABLE HOME. Already touched upon but very important. Comfy home = happy Becca.
No doubt 2012 will be as eventful as 2011. Hope the new year brings many joys to all of you. Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Henry!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HENRY!!!!

A-MAZ-ING.

Our little boy, our cuter butts, stinky face, munchkin is one-year-old today.

Hard to believe.

One year ago, he looked like this:

And now he looks like this:

And can do this:

So proud.

Henry boy- Thank you for joining our family. You have brought you dad and me so much joy, so much laughter, so much happiness, and so much love. Can’t imagine it any other way now.

Happy birthday to the best baby in the world!

Happy Birthday Mom (Grandma)!

27 Nov

Today is my mom’s birthday. Yay!

In thinking about her present, I wondered “What is mom’s favorite thing in the whole world?” And thought to myself “Her grandson, of course.” Okay, also probably her husband and children but the grandson rates pretty highly.

So, today I am posting a Henry blitz in honor of my mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mom!
