What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014?
A baby Lucy!
What date from 2014 will remain etched upon your memory?
August 11th, 2014... surviving one year of parenthood!
What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Starting a mom's group with a few close friends and it has grown into a huge city wide community for new mamas.
What was your biggest failure?
Not keeping my #1 resolution of reading the bible front to back. As much as I want to do that, I did spend a lot of time growing and studying in different books of the bible.
Did you suffer illness or injury?
Why yes. I had the tummy bug twice...in August when I was newly pregnant and yesterday, New Year's Day, bleh. I also found out I have a hernia that I will get surgically repaired during my April C section.
What was the best thing you bought?
My embroidery machine (Brother PE770). KitchenAid mixer is a close second.
Whose behavior merited celebration?
Ford Nehemiah. He went from a chubby 4 month old at the beginning of 2014 to such an adorable, talkative, and well behaved 16 month old. He is so much fun and such a joy to be around. And seriously, none of my house is baby proofed and he is alive, I call that a win!
Where did most of your money go?
Target, HEB (grocery store), Amazon, traveling. If you know anything about me you would know I love saving money, it is a thrill of mine.
What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Having a baby girl in 2015
What song will always remind you of 2014?
All About that Bass by Megan Trainor, it is Ford's jam
Compared to this time last year, are you: Happier or sadder?
Happier. My baby sleeps through the night (we were in the trenches of 4 month sleep regression last New Year's and boy was that TOUGH), we aren't fighting Ford to take a bottle (talk about emotional ride), and we've had another year of family memories. Thinner or fatter?
Fatter....currently carrying around a 6 month baby bump.
Richer or poorer?
Non financially speaking, richer. Financially, let me check with Jon.
What do you wish you’d done more of?
Reading pleasure books, hence my 2015 resolution.
What do you wish you’d done less of?
Stressing about sleep training, bottle feeding, baby milestones, getting pregnant.
