our last night of 2013

New Years Eve was so fun compared to last year! I don't even think I blogged about it last year because it went a little something like this.... We went to bed around 9 and I was feeling super depressed because everyone I knew was out partying just waiting to have their babies (you'll see, my friends and I were all pregnant within weeks-months of each other) and no one understood the struggles, pain and insane hormone changes I was going through, yet. I wanted to badly to be super mom and be able to enjoy new years.... with a week and a half old baby? Those dang hormones, I tell ya! Anyway, Mia woke up around 11:30 to eat so Eric poured us some sparkling cider and he rang in the new year with a sobbing wife who was apologizing for the lamest night ever! Once again, those hormones!! Of course we were ecstatic to have our new baby, and Eric was so sweet by telling me there was no where he'd rather be than with the 2 girls he loves most in life :)
But this year we were able to hangout with all of our friends and sweet babies!
Mia was so excited to play with friends... she's practically hyperventilating in this picture!
Baaaaaabies!
...And then I forgot about my camera, oops! Mia was in heaven with friends and toys galore to play with! We stuffed our faces all night and played an intense (ha ha) game of Battle of the Sexes (my, how New Years Eve plans change when littles are involved)! We all called it a night at 10pm because none of the babies were going to sleep! Mia usually goes down around 7:30 but she was still goin' strong at 10! She didn't even cry once... proof of how excited she was.
Eric and I put Mia to bed and started watching Chuck on netflix. That show is so addicting! A couple minutes before midnight we rushed to pour the sparkling cider... but it took us 5 minutes to get the stupid lid off... missed the countdown... kissed at 12:04... then Mia woke up! I guess she likes ringing in the new year with her parents :) We fed her, put her back to bed, and stayed up til 1:30 watching Chuck! I haven't stayed up that late since before I got pregnant! Wild night, I tell ya :)
I loved spending the night with my little family. I'm having a hard time letting go of 2013, but I'm excited for the changes I want to make in 2014. I'm hoping and praying for an even better year :)

At least I got a picture for Instagram because this is the only picture I have of the 3 of us on the last night of 2013!

You're so right, New Years completely changes when you're a Mummy! Seth and I were both ill so we were curled up on the sofa, watching the fireworks in London!

Those post-partum hormones... they make you completely crazy, but you don't even realize it until waaay later, in hindsight! Glad you had a better New Year's Eve this year :) You three are so cute.
