And, What a Year It Has Been...

The Year 2007 began with the birth of our son, Noah Sam (7:07 pm on New Year’s Day). Four short weeks later, the three of us were on a plane from San Jose to Baltimore. Some highlights from our 2007 year include:

• New Years Day Baby - Born in Los Gatos
• Move across the country (to Baltimore, MD)
• New job
• Outpatient Surgery
• 2 ER visits, totaling 21 stitches
• Carly and Matt’s Bridal & Bachlorette Parties & Wedding
• Lydia’s funeral
• Family reunions
• 1st Boat purchase
• 1st Home purchase
• Nanny share arrangements: homegrown operation
• Christmas in MD

Turning Twenty-Eight & Hitting The One Year Mark

I turned twenty-eight yesterday. Another year older...another year wiser? It seems like time is fiercely marching by. It is like water through the fingers. Twenty-seven was a wonderful year for me...this really is an amazing chapter in life. Watching Noah triple his body size and develop from a tiny 'fragile' infant to a curious babbling baby has been cool beyond description. Striving myself to become the mother I want to be has been completely eye-opening. I am so grateful for my life.

Here are the bday stars - Mama and Noah and family photos from Thanksgiving::

Catching up from the holidays has been intense, but I hope to have lots of Christmas and One-Year bday pics posted soon!
