My year end summary isn’t going to be as detailed as usual, but most of my blogs were about my pregnancy or Owen anyway.
January: hosted a small dinner party, found out I was pregnant, gave a great toastmasters speech about the day I met Jerry on TRL, threw a bridal shower for Nitika, snowed
February: won my first prize from a blog giveaway and it didn’t fit at all, snowed some more, had our first ultrasound, had dinner with Bryan’s family a couple times
March: went to Disney which wasn’t as much fun pregnant though fastpass+ planning was, waited forever to meet Anna and Elsa, welcomed Lyra into the world
April: another ultrasound, I could eat again, Merzia announces her pregnancy
May: we welcome Noel to the family, another ultrasound: it’s a boy!
June: enjoyed the second trimester, small family reunion at Nana’s, setup my home office
July: had the downstairs bathroom done, pj party at Ellen’s, Bryan’s parents have us nursery furniture
August: participated in two hackathons, didn’t win anything, had the family baby shower, Julia took maternity photos, saw Owen’s fringe on the ultrasound and that he was breech, received a summons for jury duty and got out of it, Bryan’s tiny birthday party, friends baby shower
September: work baby shower, got almost everything from our registries, baby no longer breech, welcomed Owen Edward to the world after having contractions for days :p
October: spent a lot of money to make sure breastfeeding went ok, enjoyed being a new mom, liked the cloth diapers, Owen had an eye infection, we dressed as batmommy and batbaby for Halloween
November: Owen started social smiling, he could roll over, he stated to like baths, he started cooing, smiled and cooed at the pooh art above his changing table
December: he made laughing squeals, took him to the EOY party at work, the mall, Grammy and Papi’s, and Cheryl and Yori’s shower, he stated grabbing toys and putting them in his mouth, he stated sleeping through the night, I went back to work, excellent Christmases full of good food
