new year, new me

Our new year's eve was less than exciting.... we spent the evening at home, mostly sleeping :) But Eric and I wouldn't have had it any other way! Thanks to Mia, we were all dead asleep long before midnight rolled around. And thanks again to Mia, we were up in time to ring in the new year as a family of 3! 2012 was the most exciting year for us as we anticipated the arrival of our baby girl. Now we can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for us and we are so excited to watch our daughter grow!

 One special moment of snuggling Mia in the hospital.

My new year's resolution is to be the best momma I can possibly be to my angel baby! And of course, to be the best wifey ever because Eric deserves the best :) And maybe to get back in shape, ha ha! But I am going to strive to be the very best I can be for my little family that I love so much! I'm sure I'll add more resolutions to the list as time goes on, but for now? My focus is loving my sweet family :)

P.S. Birth story is coming up next! Promise :)

How sweet is that picture?! Seriously. And you are going to be an amazing mom. I didn't find your blog until after you announced your pregnancy, but just following the last few months I could tell how much you loved Mia, which is enough :) Happy new year and God bless your family!

Shay said...

I remember thinking in the hospital (an still think it often) how if all I accomplish is to be a good mother to my sweet baby then that is enough. I know you will exceed that goal!
