This is my absolute favorite post of the year and I am very late in posting. Better late than never!
I had big plans for the year and begin a photo of the day. It didn’t last long, but had good intentions.
We started off the year in Wisconsin for Christmas with the Jones fam. This was also the trip that we drove home in white out conditions in our new truck. We vowed to never take that risk again!
Our honeymoon was also in January and we enjoyed every part of Mexico!
Enjoyed my first Val’s day with my husband!
We took a trip to Decatur for mom’s birthday and endured more awful winter weather. Work also picked up in February and I worked some long hours to open some local stores for my client.
We took a trip to Wisconsin to redeem our quick trip at Christmas. Tyler and I also worked a lot around the house to get base done in our bedroom for new furniture! Our new bedroom suite is gorgeous and we love it.
April 2nd will forever be the day that changed our family from 2 to 3. We found out that we were pregnant! This kicked off a month of dr appointments and a few uneasy moments.
My birthday on 4/15 was fairly uneventful. We were still holding a secret that we were expecting! We shared the news with immediate family at Easter since we were able to see the Jones side.
We reflected on another year of that awful day in April – 4/23. No words can express how much we miss Robert.
We missed Brynzlee’s 1st birthday party, but we were able to see photos. We love our girl!
Tyler and I took a week off together at the beginning of May. We visited our friends Mike and Tabitha and enjoyed Cincinnati.
We finished up that trip in Indy and told Nathan and Kristin that we were expecting on Cinco de Mayo. No margs for the preggo!
We continued telling friends and family our news through the month of May. I blame the lack of posts on the first trimester. I spent a majority of it sleeping.
We took a trip to Dallas to visit with the Jones side and spent many weekends at home working on items around the house.
We started off the month on the lake in Wisconsin with the Kagerbauers. Lots of lake and family time!
We also celebrated my grandma’s birthday and the Jones came in to stay with us for the Schwada reunion. So busy!
Our 20 week ultrasound resulted in a big scare and our stubborn boy wouldn’t cooperate for the scan so we found out he was a BOY at our 22 week ultrasound.
We stayed home…and it was glorious. Tyler and I tackled some outdoor projects in the heat.
We went to Indy to help my brother and SIL move into their temporary home while their house was being built.
My dr ordered an ultrasound at 30 weeks to check on the concerns from the 20 week. We were given the all clear. It was an answered prayer.
The 3rd trimester hit and I spent a lot of time with my feet up since swelling was out of control.
The month ended with an adorable baby shower for us thrown by my sister, SIL, and mom. So thankful and it was a lot of fun!
We started the month off in Dallas on vacation. It was filled with REST, shopping, and some sight seeing. We had fun!
We cleaned out the guest room when we got home to turn it into a nursery. The painting of the crib started and took several weeks to finish.
We celebrated Tyler’s birthday at his grandparents house with a nice lunch.
We took an entire weekend for Landon with an all day prep class at the hospital and a tour of L&D.
The beginning of the month was filled with dr appointments and my obsession to turn our breech baby. If I could take the time back, I would have spent less time going crazy and more time resting with T.
Our 1st anniversary was on 11/23. It wasn’t spent doing anything romantic. My poor husband! I owe him BIG in year two!
The best day of this year fell on 11/26. Our sweet Landon Tyler was born and changed our lives forever. He made us a mom and dad. We absolutely adore him.
We had a whirlwind in December with getting used to our new “normal”. Tyler was home with us for a week and then my mom came to stay and spoiled us with dinner and cleaning.
We held Christmas day at our house and then went to the Roe side for Christmas the last weekend of December. We were able to introduce Landon to all of the family that he hadn’t met yet.
Landon turned one month old on 12/26. The month flew by!
We said last year that 2013 would be hard to top, but 2014 did just that. We pray that 2015 allows us to slow down and enjoy every moment with Landon, family and friends. We look forward to what this year brings!
Stay crazy, friends.
