What a year 2009 was! Our first full year as parents was full of challenges and fears and uncertainties, but also full of amazing blessings, joy and love that we never even knew existed. We’re not the same people, parents, partners that we were this time a year ago, and I think that’s a good thing. I feel that we’ve now hit a groove with our lives, which probably means we’re about to get thrown for a loop! So 2010, bring it!
