2010 was possibly the best year ever. Not to be dramatic, but it just was. It's the most relaxed I've ever been, as a wife, certiainly as a parent, and just letting go of some of the unnecessary expectation I put on myself. It was a year of transitioning to the new normal of 2 kids, then from working to staying home, and all the changes that meant for our marriage and family.
Going from 1 child to 2 was so much easier than 0 to 1. I thought we were sooooo busy and overwhelmed with just Harris when he was a baby. HA! But it was easier to get into the groove of two kids than I expected. Walker started out as such a mellow little man. Even at his first few dr's visit's, he just let himself be looked at, no big deal. Our pediatrician made a comment about how easygoing he was and how he would probably stay that way. She clearly jinxed us. But regardless, we still learned how to function with 2 kiddos, even if one was not quite as easy as we originally thought.
Tom and I also got closer to our friends than we ever had been as a married couple. We grew in our faith and I hope that this year we grow even more. We've had good times with great friends this year and relied on them for support more times than I can count. 2010 has been such a good year. I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store.
