New year, new beginnings. Happy 2013!!

Happy New Year everyone! I am looking forward to the many blessings the year has to offer.

I have a hodge podge of pics from our time in Boston. Mostly, the pictures are of our little JOE who is growing so quickly!

Here she is trying to hold her bottle. I think she thinks if she lets go, my sister will take away the bottle. She even has the "don't mess with me" look!

And there's my little girl wearing her first "Church" outfit. Its already too short for her and its a size for 3-months! I think she'll be tall like her daddy!

What a long day! She was pooped and so was her dad! Lol!

I love watching her sleep and can't help but take a pic. Makes me wonder what she dreams of.

We were in Boston with my family for 11-days and spent both Christmas and New Year's there. I figured I likely won't be able to spend that long in Boston again anytime soon so I took full advantage. We went to Copley Place in Boston and had a great time walking around. The decorations are still up!
All of the ornament on the tree had pictures of cats in them. Its a tree to encourage donations to animal shelters. A pretty cool idea! J loves cats (I'm a dog person) so he kept looking at the pics.

I thought this was pretty cool. Its what you see when you walk into the Copley Place mall in Boston.

And this here is the first ever Microsoft store! They are trying to compete with Apple.The place was PACKED! AND, when we got to the airport on our way back to MD, there were stations with the new Windows tablet. I think they are really putting in a lot of effort to beat the iPAD. I won't lie though, I still love my iPAD. Well, except for the fact that I hate the blogger feature on it :-). Everything else works great!

J and I rented a car after the Christmas festivities and took our little JOE out every opportunity we had. Unfortunately, JOE and I both caught a cold. To compound it, she had her 2-month shots yesterday and she's been very cranky since.
Even though I also have a cold, it's been really difficult seeing my baby battle a cold. It really breaks my heart and I am looking forward to her being over this cold.

Seeing her smile though let me know she'll be just fine!

Wishing you all a fun and fabulous New Year!!


  1. These are really adorable pictures!

  2. Awwwww J, such beautiful pictures. JOE is getting so big, 2 months. Wow.

    So nice that you got to spend some time with your family. There is nothing better than family time. I love sleeping pictures. JOE and her dad sleeping is priceless. I hope you guys get over your cold soon.

    Happy new year to you and the family.

    1. Thank you. Happy new year to you and yours!

  5. Sleeping baby beauty. I can see why u can't take your eyes off of her! Any sickness in a baby is tough for mama. It would be so much easier if we could be sick for them and spare them of the discomfort but unfortunately that's not possible. Hope u two are feeling better!

    1. We are feeling much better. Thank you! She still has some congestion but it is way better than it was earlier this week.

  6. She's is so beautiful!! You must be such a proud mama!

  7. Happy New Year!

    I hope she's feeling better and that you're feeling better too.

    I love how she doesn't want anyone messing with her bottle ;). She is beautiful!

    1. Happy new year to you too! We are both feeling better. Thank you!
