Goodbye 2011, you were good to us!

2011 was a good year! Of course, it wasn't without it's struggles, but overall, we definitely saw a lot of blessings! Here is an overview!

January - Jack turned a year and a half, and I hit 30 weeks in my pregnancy!

February - We got to see lots of snow! We spent the month fighting with the bank on making repairs on the house we had an accepted offer on, and waited while they dragged their feet and took their sweet time

March - We finally closed on the house, and moved in! I turned 28, and 4 days later, Elise Abigail was born via VBAC!

April - I learned what it meant to be a mom of two, we celebrated Easter, and learned Jack had congenital trigger finger in both thumbs.

May - I struggled with breastfeeding, and had a rough month as we decided I had to start supplementing again. Jack had his surgery and it went great!

June - Jack got his first big boy haircut, Josh and I celebrated our 4th anniversary, and Ellie laughed for the first time.

July - Jack turned two! (and got his first head wound)

August - Jack decided he had to have a baby too, and Ellie decided that sleep was overrated, had her first taste of solid food, finally started putting on weight, and rolled over for the first time!

September - We went on vacation! Ellie got her ears pierced, and turned 6 months old!

October - pretty uneventful =)

November - Did a craft fair that was a flop, Got my Etsy shop open, celebrated a great thanksgiving, and Ellie turned 8 months old!

December - We started Sleep training Ellie, and it made a big difference! She went from waking up 3-4 times a night to waking up 1-2 times a night (mostly 1.) We had a great Christmas! Ended the month by celebrating my brother in law's wedding in Oregon. =)

Hope you all had a great 2011, and are looking forward to a great 2012!
