Happy New Year

Last week a family member invited me to join them in a daily blogging challenge. I thought it was a great idea at the time, but the more I think about it the more intimidated I am by the idea.  Most days I feel like I have a lot going on,  but how much of my daily life is really worth blogging about? I am just hoping that this gets me back in the groove of documenting our life.

Lacey is at such a fun age and I don't want to forget how fun she is right now. She is really starting to figure out how everything works. In just the last couple weeks she has gotten much better at communicating (or trying to communicate) what she is wanting. She can say a couple of words, but mostly she just will point and use the sign for either "please" or "help." I always wonder how much she really understands. I ask her  questions all day and she will respond with a yes or no but sometimes her answers don't always match her actions.

2015 really was a wonderful year. I learned that being a mom is hard pretty much all of the time. I learned that being a mom is one of the most wonderful things in the world. I learned what it feels like to be needed. I learned that I don't do as well with very little as I used to a few years ago. I learned that I can do hard things. I learned that I will always be worried about how well I am parenting Lacey. I learned how much a little human can change everything. I learned that you can love someone so much that you feel like you don't know what to do with it. I learned that it's financially hard to be married to a student and be a stay at home mom. I learned that being a stay at home mom is what I want to do. In 2015 I learned a lot of new things. I loved 2015, I love where we lived, I love the friends that we had, I love how much fun Lacey was during 2015.

Here's to 2016.

Here's to keeping a better record of our wonderful life.

Here's to making new memories.

Here's to learning new things.
