2011 Recap

Truth be told, I started this post on December 30th. It's now January 16th and a bit late for a 2011 recap. I hate to let all the work on this post go to waste, so here goes...2011 remembered:

Well it doesn't get much better than that does it? Growing a baby and becoming a mother?!? 2012 would be hard to top ... except Aidan is just going to be even more fun and an even bigger part of your heart!!

P.S. Love the maternity photos ... why didn't we get to see more from that shoot?!?! :D
