we spent new year's eve with some friends, playing games and eating yummy food. we picked isaac henry up from papa and ne's around 10 so the boys could go to bed. we tucked them in and prayed for their year. and then i kissed my best friend at midnight.
2013 was good. there were obviously some bad days but there were some really awesome days too. i'd say 2013 was definitely the year of grant. we found out in february that he existed, discovered he was a brother in may, met him face to face in october, and spent the rest of the year falling deeply in love with him. 2013 was also the year of isaac henry becoming a full on kid. summer was really fun with him, watching him play outside, swim, and be a boy. his vocabulary has exploded since he turned 2, and he cracks us up with his little conversations. i loved vacationing in gulf shores with our friends jared and beth-ann [who just found out they're expecting a little girl in may! one of 2014's impending highlights!] we loved investing in our youth and hosting them in our home this last year. we've made new friends. we've done life with "old" friends. i feel like we've grown this year. and it went by so fast! maybe because we were measuring the majority of our year in weeks?
i'm thinking 2014 will be a good one. it holds promise. i appreciate a clean slate. i feel like my resolutions are pretty standard. be organized. be content in our home. save some money. pay off the van. lose 15 pounds. maybe get pregnant towards the end of the year. drink more water. read the Bible more. document our life.
2014 will be a huge year for the boys. grant will meet most of his big milestones this year. i'm really looking forward to him growing and showing us his little personality. isaac henry will tackle potty training. and i'd like to be more intentional with some preschool-y type things with him this year. maybe he'll learn to swim this summer?
i'm just antsy with anticipation of the year. i've kinda got the butterflies thinking of it. let's do it 2014. it's gonna be a good one.
