As 2012 comes to a close, I am so grateful for all that this year has brought me and my family. If I could describe the year in one word, it would be blessed. It will be hard for 2013 to top 2012 because there is so much greatness that came from it.

This year……

I celebrated my last few weeks of pregnancy by showing off my bump strutting down the runway for New York Fashion Week.

I came into this year as a mother of one little girl and come out of it as the mother of two.

And learned some new dance moves.

Celebrated hair that was finally long enough to play with! (It only two nearly three years.)

Enjoyed the great joys of taking risks doing things that would generally terrify me.

Laughed at how much fun you can have on the playground.

Celebrated her third birthday with her very first pedicure.

 Realized how okay I am with her being a daddy’s girl.

And how lucky these two are to have each other.

Harlan became just a little more independent and started preschool.

She also learned that it’s good to stick out in the crowd and be an individual.

I learned that no matter how early the wake up call, waking up to this smiling face is all worth it.

She danced her way through the streets of the city.

2012-10-13_1350168858

We continued our tradition of taking an adventure out of the city to pick apples.

We had some precious moments.

Avery made some huge milestones!
