Let me start by apologizing to all of you about not writing the Christmas post yet. There will be one, I just haven’t had the time to finish it. In the meantime, I thought I would take a minute to reflect on the past year.
Brad and I were both at a loss trying to remember anything about last Christmas. Harper had just been diagnosed with reflux and food sensitivities and was spending much of her day screaming at the top of her lungs. Add to that the fact that we were new parents and, thus, completely exhausted. The result is that I don’t even have a hazy memory of that day. It’s like we completely skipped Christmas last year.
Luckily Brad was smart enough to get some videos so we have proof that it happened. And as I was watching them this morning I was struck by just how much Harper has grown and by all the things she has learned to do. I do miss her being a sweet little newborn but she is just so stinking cute now, and so much fun! I can't wait to see how this next year will unfold.
