2010 was something else. We moved to Arizona, had a kid, moved THREE times and learned to live on next to nothing. But it wasn’t all bad. Here are some photos to prove it.
February: Out by the pool, grilling some goodies. I’m about seven months pregnant here, and Afton is 14 months old.
March: Aunt Janine shows up and we have a GREAT time. Shots, anyone?
March: Afton gets tired out easily with all the swimming and the attention from Grandma and Grandpa and everyone else who shows up to shower her with affection!
April: We spent a lot of time hanging out at the Sanctuary, drinking and playing games. During this time our hot water heater was broken at the apartment (for over one month total time) and we stayed with Grandma quite a lot to taken advantage of hot showers and clean…everything!
April: We also spent a lot of time by cold bodies of water, because it was HOT outside. Our Northern raised bodies just aren’t equipped for such warmth. Oh wait, I’m also heavily pregnant. That certainly has NOTHING to do with it. Nothing at all!
April: Large and in-charge yo.
May: Time for a new arrival; Delaney! She was a scheduled C, and worth all the trouble she was (and still is!).
June: Delaney turns one month old, and Afton learns to party like a pro. All the young folks just loooooved her around the pool, and Afton loved the Afton-sized glasses to drink water from (ha!).
July: I spend a lot of time with the babies, mostly trying to get my damn incision to heal (because it refuses!) and in July I discover the lump that sends Delaney on many trips to the Children’s Hospital. It’s just a lymphatic cyst, but requires watching because of the potential for overwhelming infection. This is also the time when the hood of the little green car decides to dislodge itself and ram into the windshield, shattering it. Yay windshield!
August: Is freaking hot. Like it’s over 100 degrees at 9pm. So we go swimming. And chuck Afton all around the pool. She looks terrified, but really she loves it.
September: The new kitties are relaxing on the bed during laundry day. They are sisters, and absolutely nuts. And Delaney is old enough to hold her own for sibling bathtime! Or at least, I thought so…
September: Delaney poses with Grandma for a super awesomely cute picture.
October: Delaney is learning to be a good little model baby, showing off her new teeth.
November: Afton demonstrates how NOT to exist in harmony with a bouncer.
December: Afton turns two, learns how to coexist with her sister on a playground and visits her Daddy in the hospital.
What a year, what a year. Can’t wait to see what 2011 has in store for us, since we’re already expecting baby #3. Ten more days until we know if baby is a girl or boy!
