Happy New Years!!!

What can I say about this year? It has been a blessed one. Three years ago today I was sad, 2 years ago today I was very sad,  last year during this time I was extremely depressed, and today I'm beyond happy.

Hard to believe that last year I was so buried in my sorrows. I was so upset that I had to do IVF, I was already on treatment at this time, and I really didn't want to do it. I questioned it a lot and almost didn't go through with IVF, mainly because I don't know what I would have done if it hadn't worked, I think I had already reached a point of depression that I couldn't deal with. And imagine if I didn't? Boy, am I ever glad I'm so stubborn! Tell me I can't do something and I'll try my darnest to get it done. It was my last try financially and luckily it worked out, let me tell you that was the best money I ever spent. (Apart from shoes)

I figured I'll end this year in pics. But before I do that I want to wish you all a very happy and healthy new year, God bless! And also I want to let you know that I'll (attempt to) make a new blog, which is supposed to start tomorrow so I'm running out of time, for Noah and Natalia. This one isn't going anywhere, the new blog is just for me to post a picture a day everyday of the kids in 2011. Let's see if I can make it happen...

Once again, Happy New Year =)


I sure don't miss these...
But I'll tell you even now the smell of alcohol makes me feel
like I'm about to inject myself, I don't like it.

Which is Natalia and which is Noah?
5 bucks to who can tell me accurately...


No words needed =)

  5. I loved seeing the ultrasound pictures with their names above them since during the pregnancy the names were a secret. :) And I love that you were still able to fit in the same pants as your first belly pic...I'm jealous! Cuz I certainity wasn't fitting in the same pants at the end. :) Happy New Year, Shanny! What a wonderful year it was been for the both of us. :)
