2012: Firsts

2012 was a year of firsts for us . . .

  1. Our first full year in our new home.
  2. Our first kitchen renovation.
  3. Our first baby.

That last one has definitely, definitely been the biggest first of our lives.  And the best.

And with the advent of Mini Bunches to our lives, we’ve also been able to experience old things anew.  And thus all of her firsts are now our firsts . . .

  • Which, of course, means she also had her first Halloween.  And that first was doubly special since it was also her first trip to Disney World.

  • The first time she sucked her thumb (which, btw, was also the last–not sure what it was about Disney World, but she only sucked her thumb while we were in the park on Halloween and hasn’t done it since).

This list is far from complete, but it’s a start.  My New Year’s resolution?  More timely blog posts . . . about life, Mini B, and all her firsts, seconds, thirds, fourths, you get the idea.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful New Year’s!  Love, The Bunches.
