Just over a week into the new year, it is hard to believe that another holiday season has come and gone. Also hard to believe: next Christmas we will have a freaking child which will make my favorite holiday all that much more awesome. I can’t wait to start our own family Christmas traditions and to see our kid’s face as they experience the magic of the season. We are in store for so many firsts this year, it’s kind of hard to wrap my head around the whole thing.
Check out that bump! I think it looks pretty legit. I don’t know how much of it is baby and how much is delicious holiday food, but either way it was noticeable. Christmas was magical as always, and baby even got some unexpected gifts.
Ducky outfit from Great Grandma Joan.
And baby’s first Badgers outfit – perfect for Badger football season next fall. Love!
New year’s eve was spent at my aunt and uncle’s house as usual. Nothing better than being together with family, eating delicious food, and having a dance party, not to mention a massive sleep over complete with breakfast (monkey bread!) the next morning.
I got down with my bad self and my sparkling grape juice at midnight. It was a small miracle that I made it until the clock struck twelve, seeing as my normal bedtime is now creeping towards the eight o clock hour. The advantage of a sober NYE = waking up on Jan 1st and pounding out 5 miles on the treadmill to start the year off right! And with that, bye bye 2013! I have a feeling 2014 is going to be the best year ever!
