Where We've Been

Multiples and More posed the question, "What are your greatest accomplishments from the past year?"  I decided to answer the question in pictures...

Our number-one accomplishment of 2009 is SURVIVING!  I'm sure all you other new mamas agree on that one, right?  We did much more than just survive the year, though...

We went from this:

the belly

to this:

hours old

There were a few moments of 2009 that absolutely qualify as the hardest moments of my life.  But I made it- we all made it- and I, for one, came out stronger on the other side.  Was 2009 a challenging year?  Sure.  Was it rewarding and full of amazing, melt-my-heart moments?  Most definitely.

Here's to a life-altering 2009 and an even better 2010.  Happy New Year!


  1. You did make it, and you did a fantastic job. :)

  2. Oh I can relate :-) I just said 2009 was a year of pure joy and pure insanity!!
