Our Year In Review - 2012

It is unbelievable to me that I am sitting here thinking about ringing in a New Year - 2013 for that matter!  2013?!!?  How is that possible?  
I am hoping that 2013 brings us health, happiness and fun.  Our family needs it!  
Time to remember what we have overcome, accomplished and survived!  

January 2012:
January 2012 marked the month of my last birthday in my 20's.  29 years old.  
We introduced Jude to the NBA this month.  We took him to his first Denver Nuggets game for him to see "Hoop Ball" for the first time.  We had a fun time.  
We took a vacation to visit my bestie in Arkansas.  We had a great time being tourists and Jude loved spending time with his God-Parents. 
My Aunt is a huge National Western Stock Show fan and decided that Jude needed to experience this.  We took a trip with my Aunt down to the show and Jude was in heaven!  He loves all things horses.  

February 2012:
February started with a SNOW DAY in Denver!  This doesn't happen very often but we made sure to make the best of it. Jude's obsession with all things train became apparent!
Jeremy was apart of the annual Heart Auction at CHAC gallery in Denver.  I hosted a baby shower for my brother and his girlfriend who were expecting twins!  We went with a Monkey Theme!! 
Jeremy's Tattoo Tribute to Jude was completed!!    

March 2012:
Jude had his first dentist appointment!!  He was a rock-star - didn't need Xanax like his mommy!!  ;o)
We went for a visit to Arizona to see Jeremy's parents.  It just happened to be SPRING TRAINING!  Go Rockies!!  
The blog was a little quiet - see reason in APRIL!!  ;o)  
No blog post BUT our family grew by 2 - my brother and his girlfriend had their twins, Carter and Annabelle on March 25th!

April 2012:
Happy Easter!!  Jude had a little visit with a big bunny!  He was pretty excited!
Well hello - MAJOR Family news was posted!  

May 2012:
May was another quiet month.  Pregnancy was rough in the beginning.
The weekly bump updates started!  Here is one for weeks 15, 16, and 17!   

June 2012:
June was full of excitement!!  We announced what Baby 2.0 was! And reached 20 weeks.  It is true.  The 2nd pregnancy goes SUPER fast!
My bestie came with her hubby for a visit so we decided to hit up the Colorado Rockies.  We had a great time at the game and fun visit with them.
Jude turned 2!!  We spent the day as a family and went to a really fun Zoo in Colorado Springs. 
And we CELEBRATED big - Choo Choo I'm 2!!  Jeremy's parents were able to come out for this too!!  YAY!
We confirmed Baby Girl being a GIRL with the 3-d ultrasound.  
Wow!  June was full of fun!!

July 2012:
I hit my V-Day with the baby.  A relief after bleeding for so long!
We took a special JULY (HELLO HOT when you are pregnant!) to Arizona to surprise one of my very best friends for her 30th birthday party!  It was a blast!  
For our trip to Arizona we decided that Jude is a professional traveler.  This post makes me smile! 
A confession about being pregnant...raw and real!  
The nursery planning begins!!
Jude MADE us go get Hot Dogs for dinner!  Love this kid!

August 2012:

Jude wanted to bring some excitement to our month by breaking his finger.  We celebrated our 9 year anniversary!!  9 years!!!

My niece and nephew were baptized at our family church.  A very special day. 
Our playroom got a redesign!  Time for all the toys to be moved downstairs and out of the nursery.  Baby girl is coming soon!!  Jude even created a list of things he HAS to buy his sister. 

September 2012:
We spent a special Labor Day out as a family at a local park.  Jude rode his first Roller-coaster!  
34 weeks - Yikes...going so fast!  
Why we love Toddlerhood in our house!!  
EEEK!!  We announced Baby 2.0's name!!  Special post!!
Nursery is coming along!  Teagan is added to the mix.
Fall is here which means we took our annual visit to Anderson Farms with Jude!  Halloween is going to be a blast this year!

October 2012:
Maternity pictures!!  They turned out great!!
I was honored by my sister in law with a baby shower for me and Baby 2.0.
And we were on the watch - 38 weeks pregnant.

We got an eviction notice for Baby 2.0!!
We said good-bye to Jeremy's Papa...blessed yet so sad.

And more prayers for Jeremy - we end the year with a huge decision and change to our life. 

Wow!  What a year.  
Seriously, talk about ups and downs.  We are moving forward with a big decision on Jeremy's health - that change is coming on January 9th.  We are excited and scared but so ready.  I might be MIA during this time...but stay connected on whats going on with him here -
