I like to spend a little bit of time at the end of the year in reflection. The first time I did this was here, for 2012, helping me create and seal some precious moments in that I would otherwise be unable to recover years from now. So let's look back at some of the biggest moments of 2014.
|The Ducks were wearing Ukraine and DS awareness colored scarves. They must have heard we were coming to Boston.|
|Best Friends in the making!|
Hope had been conceived.
Kidney function concerns, frustrating MRI's, and a couple blood tests later we confirmed Little Man is healthy, happy and thriving. He just had a terrible kidney infection. Once we found the right antibiotic, he healed right up.
He is tenacious and brave.
|Catching up with old friends. I still can't believe we are old enough to have kids.|
|All of us in the exam room right before the procedure.|
To be honest, I never really thought it was going to work, I just felt like I needed to try it so I wouldn't regret not having tried it later. Surprisingly, this failed attempt did not rock me the way I feared it might. It might also be because right after the Big-Fat-Negative-news we entered Winter.
|Thanksgiving 2013 vs. Thanksgiving 2014|
We are a family. And on Dec 13, we celebrated with our friends and family that we are indeed "Forever a Family."
|At an Ellie Holcomb concert I was reminded: Hope is Alive|
2015 and Martin McFly, Here we come!
|He is walking hand-assisted. In 2015, we are definitely gonna be strolling or hover-boarding, either would be pretty cool.|
