2011 was one of the best years as we welcomed our baby girl, but also brought with it some pain as we lost our puppy. Here’s a quick recap.
Jon and I had a lot of adjusting to do with a new baby, but eventually we did get the hang of it.
We took our first trip away from home with a baby and learned a thing or two (like just how long it takes to even get out of the door).
When Peanut was just 2 months old, I made a trip to Boston to let her hang out with her future husband, all by myself!
And we learned just how hard things can be with a sick infant.
At the end of it all, I even got to go out with my girl friends for the first time since the baby’s birth.
Peanut got to celebrate her first Easter.
Our little family took a trip to Boston to celebrate Addi’s future husband’s first birthday (I can’t believe that our own little bugget is going to be 1 in less than a month).
At 4 months, we introduced Peanut to solids.
And then we started the Ferber sleep training, which resulted in all of us sleeping through the night (to this day!).
Jon and I did our first video blog to share with you the difference in American and Russian animal sounds.
After a couple of ear infections and more than a handful of colds, I thought I’d share with you some of the baby essentials for your medicine cabinet.
With solid food also came some solid poop.
I also posted about how much our lives have changed with a baby.
Peanut started moving around, so Jon and I started baby proofing.
And shared our thoughts on parenting.
Peanut also graduated to the toddler car seat, which took us 3 days to install.
To add to that little lesson in parenting, I caught my kid licking an outlet.
On a positive note, Peanut got to enjoy her very first Christmas.
How was your year?
