2013 Recap

What a year. What. A. Year. And 'tis the season! For a recap! Of 2013!

In {January} we found out we were having a boy!

{February} brought my first (and only) bout of morning sickness (at mid-20 weeks no less!), and our second anniversary!

The beginning/middle of {March} was pretty typical, being pregnant and all that jazz, and then I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and delivered our miracle boy at 28 weeks.

{April} brought the beginning of our NICU journey. By the end of the month he weighed 2 lb heavier than when he was born, was off the CPap machine, in a big boy bed, and we started nursing!

{May} was my first Mother's Day, a transfer to a newer, nicer hospital, and newborn sized clothing!

Jack was discharged in {June}! Which meant we spent the next month adjusting to having our tiny boy at home. And Carter turned 20!

{July} we had him blessed, and Jack and I spent most of the month hanging out in Raymond. And no more oxygen!

{August} was Jack's first concert(s), weddings, and more time in Raymond, sending Ryan on his mission, and spending the last days with Grandma Atwood.

Grandma passed away at the beginning of {September}, then Jack was suddenly 6 months old!

{October} was Halloween, family pictures, Thanksgiving, and 7 months! Also, Ethan came home.

{November} we started celebrating Christmas (a little early.. oops), went to a NICU reunion, and.. yep.

{December} was, obviously, Christmas! Lots of time in Raymond, and Adrian came home!

We're hoping for a slightly less crazy 2014, but 2013 was filled with surprises, joys, tears, and most importantly - love.
