Goodbye 2012....Hello 2013

Okay, so I am a little late with this but give me a break! :)

A TON happened in 2012!

For starters: This day last year (January 2, 2012) I took a test that would change our life forever! I tell ya what... I passed that sucker with FLYING colors!!

January 31, 2012 - Our first Doctors appointment to confirm my scoring! :) A little bitty bean was in my tummy with a fast heart beat. So cute and unbelievable that a tiny thing like that would be growing inside me!
That night was also my Uncle's birthday. We had a get together at Chilis and let everyone know then that we were expecting.

I'm sure something happened in February and March but nothing to write about - I really can't remember those months.

April however I remember like it was yesterday!!

April 25, 2012- The day we were to find out what we were going to have! I was getting ready that morning in our guest bathroom so Brandon could sleep in a little bit. I was straightening my hair and then reached down to get something and a SNAKE was right there at my freakin FOOT!!  This woman didn't scream...until I got to the bedroom! I believe I was asking for Brandon but I wasn't loud enough and took off to the room! :(

 Brandon came to my rescue with a spatula and two prong fork (or whatever they are called)...YAY my HERRRRO!

Later that day we found out we were having a little GIRL!!!

Not sure what happened in May or June. I do know it was HOT. Let me tell ya HEAT and PREGNANCY don't mix!! IF there is a next time, I will plan differently!

July 21, 2012 - I had an amazing baby shower-Thanks to Tia Cooper, Breanna Murphy, Lisa Runnels, and Cathy McBroom. So much love for that little unborn baby.

In August, we prepared for little Ali Rae's arrival. A whole month! I predicted that she would be born on the 31st and Brandon the 1st. Those days came and nothing happened. Soooooo....

September 6, 2012 - With the help of an epidural (the best decision EVER!!!)...we had a beautiful baby girl at 9:59 pm weighing 8lbs 6oz and 21 inches long.
There were a ton of people waiting for her arrival at the hospital and she even had a special radio announcement for her uncles and aunts on the fire department <-they had a fire.

October 6, 2012 - One month after Ali. I was 20 - 30 pounds lighter, but having a tough time. I didn't think I would be so worn out...BOY was I wrong. That was one tough month. We made it through and it got easier, much easier.

November 22, 2012 - Ali's first Thanksgiving. We quickly learned how to make a plate while that one eats and the other holds baby and then the other way. I finish pretty quickly most of the time..I don't know if that's good or bad. :)

December 2012 - We had some wonderful guests arrive at our house! We love their company and don't want them to leave. We have PLENTY of room for you guys when you return...FYI!!!  :)

December 25, 2012 - Ali's First Christmas. This child is already SPOILED. She got a TON of stuff. I look forward to next year and getting her nothing but boxes!!

December 31, 2012 - New Year's Eve. We worked the day of, came home, and went NO WHERE and did NOTHING!!! It was so GREAT!!
(We are doing that with Christmas next year too!)

After a LONG post....
