2012 Year in Review

A look back on 2012.  House renovations.  New kid.  Cross country travel.  Races.  Toddler turned independent freethinker. Family visits   Sleepless nights.  With a touch of fun, of course.  It was interesting to put this video together and realize I started the year with one family and ended with another entirely.  Here’s to 2013!

Here is last year’s Year in Review for further reading

Below is a video of Maxon dealing with a case of the hiccups.  You can view more videos that aren’t posted on the blog by going here: View All Videos.

Melanie went into active labor about 8:00 a.m. on Friday after her water broke at 3:45 a.m. We got to the hospital at 10:00 a.m. and she started pushing the little rascal out at 1:30 p.m. At 2:21 p.m. he took his first breaths. We are grateful it all went so quick, but it was still a very painful experience (she declined drugs of any kind). Despite the pain she kept her eye on the prize and never complained. Amazing. It’s pretty crazy to start your day having no idea you are going into labor and then find yourself holding your son before the cafeteria closes for lunch. He weighed in at 6 lbs 12 oz and measured 19 3/4 inches long. He had a huge mess of brown hair.

Okay, Okay. I Get It.

All right, baby. You’ve made your point. You’ve made it really easy on me for the entire pregnancy and didn’t cause me any trouble with morning sickness, fatigue, swelling or high blood pressure and now you want to stay in there until you are good and ready. But let’s be clear. I’m sure you’re a cute patootie but big momma is still going to have the final say!
