The New Year

Happy New Year!  We have lots of exciting things happening in our family....Apple learned Da, Mama, and No!  Boo now has added Da to her very extensive vocabulary including giraffe, star, bow, frog and she knows what Santa, an elephant and an owl says!  So cute!
We also will have a new addition this March, my sister-in-law is pregnant and we can't wait to meet the new little one.  When she goes back to teaching in the fall, we will be watching the baby three days a week and we are all excited!
We have a couple of resolutions in our house this year, one for me is to finally lose this baby weight, my tummy still has a bulge where Boo stuck out!  And with another baby in the house, I'm going to be busy!
I also want to try and make plans with friends more often...don't we all always talk about it but I for one is terrible about following through.  I plan to change that this year and while we are only a week into it, I have done good already!
My other resolution is to make sure I take my time and enjoy my kids.  I think I already do a pretty good job at that but as they get older and busier, I want to make sure my focus is where I want it to be.   I hear a lot that moms of twins never got to enjoy their babies because they were so busy / tired / exhausted and I just don't feel that way so hopefully that continues.
I also really want to finish this home.  We have been here 5 years I think and it is finally time to make it a home.  Thanks to Abby, I already have a really good start, now I just need to finish.
So raise your glass to 2011,  we are going to be busy and love it!
What are your New Year's Resolutions?
