Our Year in Photos:

Here it is.  Our year in photos:











New Year'z Resolutionz. I haz them.

My resolutions for the new year are pretty basic:

1. Worry less.  Be more spontaneous.  Make time to do my hobbies. 
2. Take Cole to the library, the park, the museum, on walks as often as possible.
3. Have a baby-free date night with the hubby at least once a month.
4. Remember to write 2011 on my checks BEFORE July comes around (for some reason, this is a resolution I have every year and somehow I can never keep it.  It seriously takes me at least 6 months to get the new year straight when writing the date).

How about you?  What are some of your New Year's Resolutions?

Happy New Year's Eve from the Figueroa Family!

Happy Year-End!

I don't know about any of you, but we have a family calendar that hangs on the wall.  My life seriously revolves around this calendar.  EVERYTHING I would EVER need to remember is on the calendar.  If it somehow disappeared, I think I would probably find myself unable to function.

Anyway, one of my favorite year-end things to do is to look at the past year's calendar and remember each little written event. 

Like the ultrasound appointment when we discovered it was Cole kicking around in there:

Or the crazy month of April with baby showers, birthing classes, and other baby preparations galore:

And of course, Cole's due date:
And when Cole actually decided to finally come out:

And Chris' college graduation:

What a year! I love thinking back to our expectations and hopes for the new year - how so many things did not turn out quite as planned, but ended up so much better!

I cannot wait to see what fantastic things happen in 2011!

My boys

Chris had to leave earlier this week for another week-long work stint in Medford.  I think he was a little sad at leaving Cole, so he wanted to rock him to sleep.

I sure love my boys!

old photos...

I adore this photo.  I was hugely pregnant, throwing up every day, and extremely uncomfortable.  And Chris leaned over and kissed my belly, snapping a picture with his phone camera.

It makes me remember all the anticipation and excitement of being pregnant.  The wonder and amazement.

And we didn't even know how awesome it was going to be!

Are you tired of videos featuring my little baby laughing yet?  Of course not!  So here's another one:

Gram and Pap

There are very few things I would change about my childhood - but one of those is our proximity to family, especially grandparents.  I always regretted not being able to see my grandparents as often as my other cousins could and Chris and I always promised each other we would do the best we could to have grandparents be a big part of our children's lives.  So, of course, we are loving having Cole's Gram and Pap come visit for Christmas:
