2011, The Hardest & Best Year: December Edition

At the beginning of December, my mom, Jenni, and I got to visit the newly reopened Peabody Opera House to see the Nutcracker. It was a great way to kick off the Christmas season. I promise that's Jenni's head in the picture.

Jon's grandad came to stay with us for a few weeks. Here he is learning how to use the iPad.

Just before Christmas, my parents took us to Branson for a couple of days. Most of the attractions and shows were closed for the holidays but we were able to a few things and we had a great place to stay. The Titanic museum was actually a really cool attraction, although of course a little sad. And we had a good time being there for my parents' first trip to Lambert's, home of the throwed rolls.

Noa celebrated his first Christmas and was spoiled by everyone.

We had some I family photos taken by the talented Laura Sohn.

And we found out we are having a girl. Still getting used to that idea. We are pretty immersed in blue around here. Both grandmas have started shopping in the pink section so I try to sneak a peek at the ruffles and dresses already hanging in the closet whenever I can.

In the final moments of 2011, I felt Baby Girl move on the outside for the first time instead of just the internal flutters I'd been feeling occasionally. She kicked my hand!
