A New Year: 2011

I took a look back at my New Year post from last year, and these were the things on my to-do list for 2010...
A few things I'd like to cross off my list this year:
--get pregnant/stay pregnant (check)
--run the Flying Pig 5K with Jen in early May (didn't do because of #1 above)
--paint what needs painted in the house and finish reorganizing rooms/furniture (check)
--focus on better diet, ie: try to drink more water, eat more fruits & veggies, etc (still trying, but doing better)
--transition Emmy into a big girl room, with a big girl bed (check)
--read more for fun (check...amazing what you can do when you stop bringing work home with you!)

So, again, I have some overall goals for 2011 that would be lovely to accomplish. We'll see what 2011 has in store for us!
--deliver a healthy baby boy in May, and help Em with the transition to big sister
--breastfeed for what seems a reasonable length of time, and not feel (too) guilty when I'm ready to be done
--join Weight Watchers post-pregnancy
--plan to enter a Turkey Trot in 2011, and run the whole thing
--continue to focus on maintaining a reasonable work/home balance
--take an online photography course to really learn how to use my camera
--dedicate time on a regular basis to nurture my relationship with Keith (this will become even more challenging come May)

Friends & loved ones, here's hoping for a wonderful 2011 for you!

Christmas Cookie Baking with Grammy!

My Mom came down for a visit, and "the girls" had a cookie baking & decorating afternoon yesterday. We doubled the recipe, but forgot to double the flour. It was the cookie bake-a-thon that almost wasn't! Em had a ball with her Grammy.

From the mouth of a 3 yr old...

Upon spying a house with smoke coming out of the chimney, "Hey look, that house has a tailpipe!"

"When I grow up, I was to be a girl fireman!"

When asked if she was excited about finding out whether she would have a baby brother or sister (when I have my ultrasound in a few weeks), "Nope, I'll find out later."
