Looking Back on 2018

Wow what a year! Looking back on all of our memories from 2018 and all of our family videos and photos capturing so many memories, I’m reminded of how busy it was. We did so much this past year and it was the fastest year of my life, especially with the birth of our third baby, Roman! I can’t get over how fast he has grown up. Bringing him into our family was the greatest part of the year and also the most challenging because juggling three kids had its ups and downs. Before he was born we vacationed in Hawaii and enjoyed a fun baby moon, had lots of fun family dates and soaked up our time together. Then once he came along, I thought I’d never be able to venture out with three kids by myself but somehow you figure it out and I ended up doing a road trip with all three kids alone and flying to Utah and Florida with them. I also never thought I’d make it back to Disneyland, but we definitely went our fair share this year. One of the greatest parts about being a parent is seeing the bonds form between each of your kids. The relationships they each have are so special and it’s amazing how Rome just fits right in with them. The big focus this past year was family and cherishing every part of bringing a new baby into the world and all that comes with it. We are truly blessed for all the blessings that have been brought into our life and another big change that came this past year was Adam changing jobs. I’m so glad that he gets to do something he loves that’s also challenging and exciting.
