I'm joining in on Jo-Lynne's little Blog Recap Carnival. If you'd like to join, just post the first line of the first post of each month of the past year and publish it as a new blog post. Then go over to Musings of A Housewife and add your link to the MckLinky. I'm going to post the first line of the second post of some months because of the whole "The Baby Belly at Week___" thing.
January- Big Daddy had a spur of the moment trip to Italy for business.
This was the review of the year before. It was lots of fun to look back at what happened so long ago.
February- This is my first ever carnival and it just happens to be hosted by one of my most favorite bloggers, Jo-Lynne at Musings of A Housewife. She's hosting a carnival called, "What I Learned This Week".
I guess this one sort of speaks for itself! I haven't participated lately because things have been busy, but I LOVE this carnival!
March- Eating Oreos
Nothing but pictures of my sweet little Muffin. My how she's grown!
April- Tomorrow is my day off!
I had a midwife appointment, Big Daddy had the day off work and took Muffin along for a lunch date. I haven't had a day off since June, so this one made me smile!
May- I realized yesterday on my way home from Nana & Pawpaw's that we're entering one of the most challenging times of our marriage.
Of course, this is about the challenge of moving, having a new baby and dealing with everything that we and The Muffin were getting ready to go through.
June- I talked to The Mommy this afternoon and got a little update.
This is when Auntie Lisa had taken over my blog. We had just moved from the dreaded apartment and were trying to get settled in... just six days from Ellie's due date. I get tired and feel like crying just reading it over again.
July- Thanks so much to those of you that left kind comments on my last post.
Sharing the joys of two. Two kids and two UTI's that were actually endometrium infections. It seems I was in such a fog that I only thought they were UTI's and didn't actually find out that they weren't until my midwife visit in November.
August- I've been so busy this week with the packing, moving, unpacking and cleaning.
This was the day after my 32nd birthday and the day after our second night in the new house. Moving while juggling two little girls was an adventure. I don't think it was nearly as bad as moving while juggling The Muffin and a 39 week pregnant belly.
September- The official "First Day of Preschool" picture.
October- Well, not quite!
The title of this post was "And then she peed in her pants". I won a contest!
November- We had a fun and exciting Halloween weekend, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to write all about it and share my pictures.
Ellie was SO excited about going to our old church (out of my belly) that she woke up at 3 am. So...I shared our Halloween pictures a little late.
December- I have never been a fan of trees with a theme.
So, I had to skip the first two posts of the month because they were another "What I Learned" and a "Wordless Wednesday." This is the post where I shared a few of our Christmas decorations.
This has been such a challenging year! It's been a challenge trying to adapt to all of the changes in our life. We have a new hometown, a new house and a new church. The Muffin started preschool and welcomed a new sister. Big Daddy and I have had to learn how to parent two girls and how to deal with missing our old house, hometown and friends. I'm sure that 2010 will have it's challenges, but I hope and pray that it will be a little easier on us than 2009 was.
Happy New Year!!
