goodbye 2012, hello 2013

January: we had a great time drinking and hanging out with friends, Darin went on a ride a long with Henderson PD, I kissed a girl, Darin started school, and we got pregnant (didn’t know yet) February: we found out we were pregnant with Aidan. March: we were getting very excited about the baby and getting ready for a big road trip. April: we drove to North Carolina to see Darin’s family! It was a great trip! We started the second trimester of the pregnancy. May: we found out we were having a boy! June: I got a job working for the city. July: the pregnancy was going great. August: we went to the beach!!! September: I stopped working and had my baby shower! October: Darin turned 28 and Aidan was born!!!! November: I turned 25 and we were getting use to having a baby! December: we moved into our own house and Darin got a job that allows him to carry a gun! 2012 was an interesting year. I never thought we would have kids. After everything we had been through over the years I really never thought it was going to happen. The pregnancy was great and I feel so lucky to have made it full term. I am so happy to have my little Aidan in our lives! We have talked a lot about it and as of right now we do not want any more children. Trying to get pregnant is hard for us and we do not want the stress. Some bad things have happened in 2012 but we need to focus on the good. It seems as though the bad follows you from year to year, the good memories will always be there but sometimes the bad just stick out more. I do not want negative people in my son’s life. It took us so long to have him I want his life to be as perfect as possible for as long as possible. I will do everything I can to protect him from negativity. My husband and I make ALL of our decisions together and we do a pretty good job of being there for each other. I am happy with the way the year went. I have some regrets but I can not change the past so I just need to move on. 2013 will be a year filled with fun stuff! Aidan is going to grow and strive. My goal for 2013 is to continue breastfeeding no matter what! I do not have a lot of support but it is important to Darin and I that Aidan only brinks breast milk! I will do anything for my baby and even though it is not always easy it is always worth it! I will do everything I can to make sure my family is as happy as can be in 2013. Now that we have our baby nothing can bring me down for long.
