Happy New Year! (catching up part III)

It's cliche, I know, but it's so hard for me to believe that it's 2012. I'm not much one for NY resolutions or big retrospections, but I do like the fresh start that a new year brings. My resolutions this year are:

1. Give birth to a baby.
2. Keep everyone in my immediate family alive, all year.
3. Get a haircut.

I like them. Do-able. 

I also registered for a new email address and signed up for a few daily emails - inspirations, quotes, photography tips, recipes, stuff like that. No pressure to do anything with them, but hopefully something good will rub off on me.

We didn't do too much to celebrate. We had dinner with R's family, then came home, put the baby to bed, and R and I rented a movie. Actually, that's a pretty big deal for us - I haven't seen a movie since before Julia was born. (We got Bridesmaids and were pretty pleased.) I think we were both asleep by 10:30. It's been really nice having R home for the three-day weekend though. We didn't get near enough done but it hasn't been too bad having a lazy couple of days. 

(On the other hand, I've been putting off so much stuff until "after the holidays" that it's all hitting me now. I'm going to have a BABY in less than four months and we have a LOT (A LOT) to do before that happens. The freak-out is starting to melt my brain already.)

Anyways, no photos from NYE itself, but a few from the weekend. Julia and Scrappy were big fans of the unseasonably warm weather:

Scrappy isn't biting Julia...
Julia is trying to feed Scrappy a stick, and Scraps is being incredibly good-natured about it.

One of Julia's latest tricks - jumping. She gets such a big start but never gets off the ground.

See? A jump!

And follow-through.
(Looks like Scrappy has only one photo-face today.)

Doesn't J look so old here?! (I have one of these "so old already?!" photos in every set, it seems.)

This expression cracks me up. R is putting on her shoes.


  1. omg, she does look so old! does it break your heart or excite you?

  2. I'm loving your new camera lens! How do you like it? And I can't believe how grown up she's getting. She's really starting to look like Robert, it's adorable! Also, I haven't seen you in ages, please post a bump picture and a pregnancy update.
