A year in review : January-March 2009

I am feeling a bit sentimental at the end of 2009.
It was a big year for me.
So please, indulge my nostalgic heart
as I journey through the last year through Blog posts.

January found me 7 months pregnant
and trudging through a very hard time.
My older brother was going through a divorce
and my mom left to help him rebuild his life in Colorado.
She is a huge a support for me
and in her absence all hell broke loose.
We had bouts of sickness
and then I had a scare
that landed me in the Emergency Room.

February was a very cathartic month for me.
I took the time to enjoy the first signs of spring,
grappled with pregnancy hormones,
counted my blessings,
and even found moments of laughter.

March found me to be 9 months pregnant
and so excited to have my mom return from Colorado.
Enjoying the last few moments that
I had with Griffin before the baby arrived.
Getting the nursery in order and nesting.
Settling on a name for the baby,
and waddling around like a beached whale.

Tune in tomorrow to watch the chaos unfold!

I like strolling through the past year, it helps me catch up with your blog.
I love your vintage pictures!
Where do you find them?
I really need to make a button for my blog and haven't had any luck...

This is a great idea. I'm going back to read some of the posts from before I started following yoU!

Hey, what part of Colorado. I live here and you could come visit. You know, the 2 birds with 1 stone thing! :)

I wasn't following you (or reading blogs) back then, so this was cool to see what happened back then. thanks!

What a great idea to go back over the last year! As a new-ish reader (the last three months or so) I'm looking forward to seeing how this will unfold :)
