2010: The Year in Review

Thursday, December 30, 2010

I'm a big fan of lists.  I am also a big fan of "recaps," as in the multitudes of "year in review" shows that will be on this weekend.  I really do want to know the biggest celebrity scandals of 2010, the best songs of 2010, and the biggest news stories of 2010.  In particular, I'd like to know this year because I spent a lot of 2010 either on bedrest or in "new baby land," where news doesn't always make it through the sleep-deprived haze.

In honor of how I will be spending this weekend, here's our own Geauxbaby 2010: Year in Review.

January.
After going into pre-term labor in mid-December 2009, I was on bed rest in January 2010.  For those of you who remember, bless you for visiting me.  For those of you who didn't know me then or don't remember, bed rest consisted of me, parked in my awesome leather recliner in the living room (courtesy of the best husband ever), with the remotes, my laptop, my Blackberry, and an omnipresent cup of decaf tea.

I was pretty productive on bed rest:  I read five novels, started this blog, watched an obscene amount of TV, napped a lot, emailed a lot, and scoured the interwebs for (1) information about my baby; (2) items for baby's nursery; (3) things to amuse me.  Still growing the baby.



February.
I went back to work part-time.  This was great, because it meant I got out of the house.  This was tragic, because it meant that I was waddling around with ankles the size of ... Fat Bastard.  Still growing the baby.


March.
Cheeseburger arrived!  And Cheeseburger was a boy, and we named him John, and call him Jack.  Oh, happy day.


April.
Jack, Durel, and I got to know one another.




May.
Still getting to know one another.  Loving every minute of it.


June.
I returned to work and Jack started school!  I was introduced to an entire group of people who love my baby in abundance.  So awesome.

The first ever Photo Shoot Friday.  It started as "Pearl Snap Friday," truth be told.
Maren, Gabe, Jack, Mac, and Eli round out the circle here.



July.
The Rosewood Oaks Gang kicked their activities up a notch.  In case I never blogged this, here's the Independence Day version of Photo Shoot Friday.

Jack, Emma, Gabe, and Jazmin show their patriotic sides.  And their sitting up skills.
August.
August was the month that she introduced Jack to the beach!  We visited South Padre Island with Grammy and Granddad Davies.  Awesomeness.  Jack got to fly the plane visit the cockpit on the trip down.




September.
The major cuteness continued into the fall.  September ushered in a series of ear infections that would result in tubes in December.  The up side?  Jack finds the paper in the doctor's office to be quite a treat.


October.
Happy fall, y'all!

November.
Happy dude.  Happy family.


December.
I promise, Christmas pictures are coming!  Uncle James took most of the ones that are sure to dazzle.  In the mean time, I will say that this month has seen Jack's "real food" intake skyrocket!  He likes all sort of things, and we're trying new things all the time!  Here's to raising our happy, foodie baby in a healthy way!


From Durel, Jack, and I, thanks for following our adventures in 2010.  We look forward to sharing more in 2011!

Cheers,
Heather
