2017 in Review

I haven't blogged most of 2017, mainly because life has been busy and I just haven't had or made the time to sit down and do it. So here's our year in review.

Ewan turned 6.

We found out we were having a boy, although no one that doesn't know me in person knew I was pregnant yet.

I finally revealed that we were expecting baby #3. I took the kids on a road trip for a few days over spring break. 

We celebrated Easter in Louisville and I found out my mom was really sick. Wound up making an emergency trip to Northern Indiana at 34 weeks pregnant. 

Celebrated Mother's Day and friends threw me a Blessingway. It was such an amazing, empowering experience that I needed with all the anxiety I had during my pregnancy. 

Cameron made his arrival! His birth, much like my pregnancy, was frought with twists and turns, followed by a week of dealing with jaundice and bili light. 

Adjusting to being a mom of three was a lot harder than I thought and we spent most of our days hanging around the house with a few trips to the park, YMCA and library mixed in. We also drove out to a sunflower field for an impromptu kids photo shoot.

Back to school: Ewan started 1st grade and Cecily started pre-k. We drove down to Murray, KY to experience the eclipse only to have a cloud go in front of the sun during totality! I started running again and made the decision to not return to work. 

We made a trip up to the lake for Labor Day and my family finally got to meet Cameron. At the end of the month we made a trip to Louisville and pumpkin patch so Alan's extended family could meet him as well. 

October: Our busy season hit. Alan turned 34, Cecily turned 5. We celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. We celebrated her birthday as a family by going to French Lick for the weekend to ride the train and stay in a hotel and Alan, Cameron and I went hiking for our anniversary. I accompanied Cecily on her class field trip to the pumpkin patch and we took our yearly family photos. 

We celebrated Thanksgiving with Alan's family in Louisville. As usual I was sick over Thanksgiving and had registered to run a race that day. I made the decision to do the 1.25 mi fun run but missed then turn and ran the five mile race anyway. Oops!

December: I turned 36! Cecily sliced open her chin at school as my birthday present. We watched the kids in their Christmas programs at their respective schools. We did a one mile family fun walk through the Fantasy of Lights and then drove through the Carnival of Lights and went to see Santa, our annual family tradition. Santa visited our house on Christmas Eve and then we celebrated Christmas in Louisville with Alan's family. I had big plans for winter break with the kids. Go to the zoo, children's museum, Skyzone, the YMCA. Almost all foiled by Alan, Cameron and I being sick. 

I have big plans for 2018 in all aspects of life and hope to blog more about what's going on (although I post on Instagram all the time if you want to be even more up to date). Happy New Year!
