It's been very quiet on here!! I've been soaking in time with the family, time with my grandmother who came in town and time with dear friends. We've been busy!! Too busy, apparently, because the past few days I've been feeling a little run down and then today I woke up with a killer cold. Yuck. Praying it doesn't last long!
I love looking back at our year!! 2013 was full of big accomplishments for our little bean and so many surprises!
We started in Disney World the beginning of January. :)
Someone took off his last diaper and put on his first pair of big boy underwear in January as well.
In March, Nathan skied for the first time and LOVED it.
He also learned how to get on and off his swings all by himself.
We soaked up the last few days with dear friends before they moved.
And we soaked in the warmer weather!
We built our very first garden and put the finishing touches on first. ;)
And we got our biggest surprise of the year after two years of trying, three failed IUIs and during the middle of our summer off. :)
This sweet face turned three. THREE.
We swam. And swam. And swam some more. We fell in love with jumping off the diving board and learned to swim without floaties.
We lived at the library this summer and found LOTS of new favorites!
We added a new sister-in-law to be!!
And we started our very first year of Awanas.
Then we added our second sister-in-law to be!!
Mama kept on growing and growing and growing. :)
Someone had too much fun in his Halloween costume.
We fell in love with this sweet face.
And we found out baby boy #2 was joining our family in 2014. :)
We hung out with the California family in Flagstaff for Thanksgiving.
And did our traditional Christmas pajama party with the Mangum side.
As we bring 2013 to a close, I'm just so overcome with all the blessings we have been given this year! We started coming off the hardest year we'd ever faced and are ending this year looking forward to what is shaping up to be the best and biggest year we've had in a while. God has been so good - I can't wait to see what amazing things He has planned for us in 2014!!
I have been and will continue to be praying for you this coming year. I'm praying that you and your dear ones are filled to full of the love of Jesus and that we all just learn more and more about the love of our Savior this year.
