Looking Back at 2013

As we say goodbye to 2013, I look back at our most memorable moments from the past 12 months...I'm feeling BLESSED, THANKFUL, EXCITED, AND PROUD!

 
JANUARY
 
We found out we were expecting a new little Hammerick this year!
 
Baby's first photo shoot
 
 
 
FEBRUARY
 
Allie traded in her crib for a big girl bed...
 
...and started visiting Todd and I in the middle of the night.
 
 
 
MARCH
 

We announced to our friends and family that a new little Hammerick was joining our family!
 
Allie moved from our bed to the floor...when she visited us in the middle of the night.
 
 
 
APRIL 
 

Allie was potty trained.
 
 
 
MAY

We found out we were having a BOY! 
Allie got a new sleeping bag...to sleep on our floor...when she visits us in the middle of the night.
 



JUNE

Allie took her 2nd cruise.
 
 
 
JULY

 
We had maternity photos taken...

...Allie met her cousins from California for the first time...
 
...and Allie learned to ride a tricycle.
 
 
 
AUGUST
 
 

We visited Amish country in Ohio...
 
...and we anxiously awaited the new addition to our family.
 
 
 
SEPTEMBER

Ayden James was born...
 
...and our bed got even MORE crowded.
 
 
 
OCTOBER 

Baby's first Halloween.
 
 
 
NOVEMBER
 
Baby's first Thanksgiving.
 

 
 
 
DECEMBER
 
Allie turned THREE...

...a little elf came to visit our family for the first time...
 
...and Ayden celebrated his first Christmas.
 
(AND Allie didn't cry when she visited Santa!  ...remember the last 2 years?)
 
Allie's sleep is IMPROVING...but not yet perfect.
(Absolutely NO liquids before bed!) 

 
This was a BIG year for our family with the addition of Ayden.  Todd and I have had our ups and downs this year, but we will always look back on 2013 with love and joy...and a little bit of sleep deprivation.  Here's to looking forward to getting MUCH more sleep in 2014!
