Looking Back on 2017

Looking Back on 2017

I love this tradition of looking back on all of our memories of the past year and trying to narrow the months down to our highlights.  But I still can't believe another year has gone by and here we are ready to kick off 2018.  This last year was a good one for our family filled with lots of fun trips and watching our two kiddos grow up so much.  This was a year that was all about being settled for me - we didn't have any big changes which is kind of rare.  It was the second year in our home so there wasn't any moving, any job changes, and it just felt like we got into a good groove with our two kids and got back to reconnecting as a couple with our first vacation alone since having kids and we finally got a regular babysitter so we could have weekly date nights which have been such a highlight.  We had lots of visitors that we met at Disneyland and vacations with each sides of our families that were so much fun.  And we had the best time starting new traditions with our little family and also carrying on some that we started last year  Then we shared the best news ever when we found out that we were expecting our third baby in July and we anxiously waited every week until we could share the excitement with our families.  We can't wait to welcome another baby boy into our family in just a couple months and become a family of five.  I'm looking forward to soaking up our time with a newborn and probably slow down a little this year.
