I started off the year pregnant, in my third trimester.

I was a miserable pregnant lady. Ask any friend of mine, or my husband. I couldn't wait for it to be over.
In March, I had a baby. The love of my life was born.
In October, I had to say goodbye to my best animal friend of 19 years, Gizmo. This is the last picture I took of him on the day he passed away.
Finally, I just celebrated my first Christmas as a mom:
This year I watched my son go from a bump kicking inside my belly to a little man who is now crawling, standing, and feeding himself bottles. I spent 10 weeks at home on maternity leave that I can't really even remember. I fell into a depression that I'm still struggling to pull myself out of.
I rang in 2011 in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. A crazy start to a crazy year. This year I'll be welcoming in 2012 at home, probably cuddled up in bed. A low key start to what I hope is a much more low key year.
Happy New Year, everyone.
