2014: A Year of Firsts!

This year was our first full four seasons with Austin Dean and it was all about learning to live life as a family of three. There were first steps and first words and first foods! Nick and I had to learn how to take care of ourselves (hair cuts, sick days and work deadlines etc.) while taking care of Austin first and foremost. My mom helped out a ton this year, traveling from CT so we could have a date night here and there or even just get some cleaning done on the weekends.

I learned how to pump breast milk on a train from NYC to DC (oh the fun) and in my car while driving to and from work and in my office while typing emails.  There was that day when I had two different colored shoes on at work. Or the time when Austin had a temperature of 105.3 while we were at the beach in North Carolina at 2:00am. Or how about when he got his finger stuck in the bunny cage at the Zoo. His first trip to the Zoo.

We had first haircuts and and first mothers day tea parties at school. We had an AMAZING first birthday party.

We took our first plane trip with Austin. There were pina coladas in Florida (so many pina coladas) and moscato and mango juice at home (often) and several diet attempts (salads and zuchinni noodles galore). Lots of pureed fruit pouches and names written on school lunches and trips to the park.

It sounds a little crazy but crazy has started to feel nice, like home … and home is my favorite place to be. Does that make sense? This morning when we got Austin out of his crib (after he woke up ridiculously early) and brought him in bed with us to cuddle for a few minutes he said “Mama!” and then climbed on top me and planted sloppy kisses on my face over and over “mwah, mwah, mwah …”  You see it’s a tricky thing. Just when you wish you could please. just. sleep. in. Toddler kisses make it all better again. Happy New Year guys!

P.S.  Remember last years video?

    +ACI-I don’t think eastern conference finals will be a long war, knight’s strength is too strong. The celtics nobody with lebron, they even Owen this level of star all have no, they are really no one can stop the knight.

    Draft of the same year on the bottom rookie will be what?In general the draft should be able to blow the other party, who would have thought them took Owen on the 60th pick small Thomas in the same year, he turned out to be in the position of the challenger?
