Hi 2012!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone spent last night with loved ones, or at least well liked ones. The Husband and I have a New Year's tradition of our own, eschewing the big party scene for fondue and copious amounts of Prosecco, a nectar of the Gods. There were some sad times in 2011 as both of The Husband's grandmothers passed away and there were some disappointing times as we learned the second baby we long for isn't coming without some help. But on the whole it was a good year with lots of fun times for my little family.

I don't make New Year's Resolutions because I do better with periodic, short-term goals but I do like to look at the year ahead and make a game plan. We've got a two family vacations planned to help us take a break from the crazy that is our day-to-day life and just bask in our love for each other. And fight and bicker in airports somewhere, but that's just details. When you look back at time with the family, with any luck you only see smiles in the pictures.

The most significant item on the 2012 agenda is, hopefully, the start of a sibling for The Parasite. Three rounds of treatment and a few more months of letting nature take its course with a deadline of December 31, 2012. If there's no baby on the way as we have champagne and Prosecco next year, we'll close up shop and enjoy our life with the awesome kid we already have. And we'll concentrate on making her life the stuff that dreams are made of.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you'll stay along for the ride.

Best of luck with Baby #2! Sending lots of baby dust your way!!!!

@NM, we had to make an extra run to the liquor store on NYE to replenish our stocks. Totally worth it.

@Teena, Happy new year to you too!

@Jane, fear not, you've got all year to catch up! :) HNY back at you.
