Oh 2009, What a Year You Have Been!

2009 brought some big changes in our lives...most notably a child and a move to a new city.Here are some of the highlights from 2009:

January - We rung in the new year with friends in Modesto. It was a good way to start the year.

February - Edinburgh was covered in a blanket of snow. Though it turned into a dirty slush, when it was fresh, it was beautiful and made for some great pictures.

March - I found out I was pregnant with my little man...of course I didn't know it was a little man for many a months!

April - We celebrated my birthday by heading out of town to an aquarium. It was a fun day. I also got a special birthday present from a local author with whom I share a birthday...a signed book. It made all my coworkers jealous.

May - May was a big month for us. We kicked off the month by announcing to the world that I was pregnant. We traveled back to California to celebrate my brother Jeremy's 30th birthday and to get in some time with family and friends. We also were confronted with a dilemma. We had to move...it was either back to California or up to Aberdeen, Scotland. After some thought, we decided to head up to Aberdeen.

June - Ian and I celebrated 6 years of marriage.

July - We hit up a large music festival in Scotland. It was quite the adventure.

August - August is always a busy and fun month in Edinburgh. The whole city is transformed for the festival. We took part in a lot of shows and activities that month. I also spent some time in the hospital with a UTI. It was the first hospitalization of my life. We also packed up all our belongings and moved them up to Aberdeen.

September - We celebrated Ian's birthday by heading over to Amsterdam for a few days. It was a fun trip. In the middle of the month I began my maternity leave and officially moved up to Aberdeen.

October - With a lot more time on my hands, I began cooking dinner every night, attending baby classes and preparing for the arrival of baby g.

November - 10 days late...10 DAYS! It felt like the longest 10 days of my life! Finally Connor made an appearance and our life hasn't been the same since! My mom came over 3 days after Connor was born and stayed for 3 weeks. It was very helpful and fun to spend some time with my mom.

December - We have taken many a trip already with Connor (three times to Edinburgh and once to Inverness). Ian's family came over for Christmas and are here to ring in the new year with us.

I look forward to what 2010 has in store for me...a visit home, time with Connor and hopefully some fun trips with Ian.
