2016 Year in Review

2016 Year in Review

I’ve got to be honest, this year was monumental. Learning we were pregnant in January, my dad going into the nursing home, a new job at work, having a baby….a LOT happened. It also felt like a whirlwind. Looking back at some of these memories, some feel 1,000 years ago and some I hardly remember (lots of emotional fog going on!).

Here’s a look back at 2016.

In January, dad had emergency eye surgery (which sadly, started the spiral of Alzheimer’s progressing quickly and him ending up in a nursing home). But it’s an important part of this year. We had to drive him to Little Rock in snow and icy roads for the surgery.

My sister came to visit, we went to ClueMasters for an escape room (and this was the day I found out I was pregnant!).

At the end of February, mom and I went to NYC and saw HAMILTON! Highlight of the year for sure! Seeing the entire original cast was AMAZING.

Mom and I spent many afternoons floating around the lazy river at the waterpark. Pregnant in the summer meant floating in the water for relief.img_3133

Tyler and I took a little babymoon to Branson/Big Cedar.

In July, I took the dreaded glucose test and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. It stunk to have to be so careful and check my sugars 4x a day…but it kept me and Remi healthy!
