I've seen this on a bunch of blogs and thought it would be a good way to chronicle the high points of 2008 in pictures.
December 2007Ok, so this didn't happen in 2008, but it changed our family forever.
I was so sick the first part of the year that I didn't take many pictures. I literally found one handful of January pictures on flickr.
We had her birthday party in January since we had a big snowstorm come through the weekend we were supposed to have her party in December.
We found out we were having twins in January. Suddenly, we went from comfortable with the thought of having another baby to complete shock and panic at having two.
This is the ONLY picture I found on flickr taken in February!
Again, the only March picture I found on flickr! I was so sick those couple months I spent the majority of my time on the couch or in the bathroom.
The day of my "big" ultrasound, Abby was supposed to go to a friend's, but she got sick at Target. She threw up in the seasonal section, in the ultrasound room, and again in her carseat a couple blocks from home. I was still pretty sick at the time, so there was no way I could clean it up. We ended up buying her a booster seat instead since she was ready for it anyway, and Damon was to clean the carseat for when we needed it for the babies. Yeah. That never happened.
That was the day we found out we'd have a house full of GIRLS!
I was finally able to pull myself out of the bathroom by May. Only to be too big and uncomfortable to enjoy being pregnant.
One of my all-time favorite Abby pictures.
Happy Father's Day!
The last belly shot I took. This was 2 weeks before they were born (35 weeks).
This was definitely the biggest month of the year for us. Our babies were born the 5th.
Abby's first school picture
Getting chubby already
Cora's first documented smile
Emma's first documented smile
Both girls rolled over from front to back for the first time. Cora still hasn't rolled since!
One of my all-time most popular pictures.
Abby can now write her own name.
The babies tried solids for the first time the beginning of the month.
We had a great Christmas!
I hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
