Welcome 2011

A new year has begun and with it comes the start of a new decade.  It's hard for me to believe that the last ten years started with me graduating from high school and ended with me becoming a Momma.  It makes me wonder what the next ten years will have instore for me.  I'm hoping that it at least includes a few more kiddos for me and hubz; several bumps in grade and more pay for me; a college degree or two for hubz and the step-son; and health and happiness for us all.

I've always been kind of reflective and the end and beginning of the year, but this year more so than ever before because I have my little Bean.  This next year will see many changes for him especially.  He's already started by beginning to cut teeth.  On Friday he'll be 4-months, already, and it makes me sad and happy at the same time.  Before we know it he'll be eating solids and crawling, then walking, talking and meeting tons of milestones.  I think I'm so reflective because of the rough start that he had.  While hubz never had any doubts that he would pull through and be 100%, I at times wasn't so sure.  I'm a prepare for th worst and hope for the best kind of girl, it keeps me from being suprised when things don't work out the way I want.  But now we're full steam ahead with our little bruiser, as hubz calls him.

So as 2011 just gets started I say welcome.  We've been expecting you and we can't wait to see what you have instore for us in the next 361 days.  While I'm sure it won't all be good, I can gurantee it won't be all bad either.  It's definately going to be an adventure because it's life and I can't wait to see what you're doling out.  So bring it 2011 I'm ready for whatever you've got because if there's one thing I've learned from the past decade is I can handle anything you want to throw at me and what I can't handle on my own can be taken care of with the love and support of those that love me the most.
