This has been quite a year – for all of us!
January started off with a blizzard (one of many that winter!), and pneumonia. I will never forgot the nightmare of Em’s 104.7 fever, and another snowstorm.
February brought the creation of the modern art artistic masterpiece that still hangs in our living room, another snowstorm, a 2 year old girl, and then one more snow storm (see any themes here?).
March gave us even more snow, Emily’s first ever pig tales and a trip to the crayola factory
April was full of a trip to NYC, tons of playing outside, and Emily’s first band-aid worth boo boo
May was all about playing outside, a trip to Sesame Place (Elmo’s house), ice cream and learning her eye color
June took us to the beach to feed the birds, Em’s first (and so far only, thankfully) night terror, strawberry picking, we turned the crib into a toddler bed, and tea parties
July we visited the beach, took a boat to Long Island (and Em ate her way through Long Island), and Emily painted name letters for her wall
August was about getting power back (sigh, one of may power outages this year), a trip to Colorado, a trip to Town Fair Tire (the toddler play mecca), Emily’s first sushi experience (obsession), tons of being outside, of course, and spray bottles
September we saw a wolf in our yard and Emily gained an internet reputation for breaking out of school. She also learned all about touch downs, and traded in her booster seat for a big girl chair at the big table.
October – Halloween! Or rather, instead of Halloween, we had a massive snowstorm/power outage and pneumonia. But we also managed another trip to the city, pumpkins, a pony ride, and a worm obsession.
November brought a 1 day spinach obsession, winter bird feeding and Em’s art gallery wall
And lastly, December, with a Disney cruise and Emily meeting Cinderella (and forming a Tinker Bell obsession).
It has been a great year for the S—— family and we are all excited to see what 2012 brings!
(for Em’s year in review post I tried to include pictures that were not in blog entries already, I had a great time going through all the older entries and reliving Em’s past year. She had a great time watching all the videos!)
