Wow, I cannot believe this year is already over. I guess being pregnant the entire year (at least that's what it felt like!) helped it fly by extra quickly.
Last year we rung in the New Year with a few friends. Nothing too crazy because I was not so secretly hoping I was pregnant. I wasn't.
The weekend after the New Year, I celebrated my 27th birthday with a big surprise party. Way to go, B! This was such a fun night and I was so happy to have all of my friends show up for me!
And two weeks after that...I got this:
What a happy day!
We celebrated other birthdays with friends, and I pretended to be on medicine so they wouldn't be suspicious as to why I was skipping out on extra cheap, delicious beer
Valentine's Day was spent with me hovering over the toilet so there will be no pictures of that...
We celebrated Easter with the family

Went to a bachelorette party...
