January was all about snow, potty training, a big girl bed, and going public with the news that Emily was going to be a big sister
February was all about Emily turning 3, cheese and putting on our own socks
March was all about diy (rain gutter bookshelves, closet dividers, and more), wearing big girl underwear and making pasta
April was dominated with painting the house
May was about a campfire and s’mores in the backyard, funny comments, and playing at the beach and in the rain
June saw Emily become a big sister!
July was all about adapting and cuddling
August was all about not sleeping and Emily’s funny comments
September saw the big “why is the sky blue?” question
October was all about Halloween, sleeping in cribs, and Hurricane Sandy
November was about Hurricane Sandy, snow, and Emily laughing with her baby brother and sister (the greatest sound ever!)
December was about the babies showing their personalities and Sidney loving Tinkerbell too
It has been a crazy year. 2012 started “normally”, or as normal as we have ever had, but the second half was unlike anything we could have ever predicted! From the number of babies and kids we now have, to the weather, our lives have been turned upside down, shaken up, and twisted in weird knots. But the only thing I would change is the amount of sleep D and I get at night.
