Happy New Year

Looking back 2007 was certainly a year of happy times and sad times. A year of growth and a year of what felt like standing still. I'm always amazed at just how much can change in one short year. When you think about it in the grand scheme of time, 365 days is just a drop in the bucket.

Going in to 2007 we had so many high hopes. I can remember thinking that this time next year (so now) we would have a sibling for Chase on the way and maybe even be in a new house. Obviously so far neither of those have worked out, but they will in time.

Despite our heartbreak from 2007, we experienced so many wonderful things. Chase has grown from our baby to a toddler, and while I love every minute of it (almost) it makes me sad in some ways that he has become so independent. There are many times I wish I could just scoop him up and hold him in my arms like I used to. He constantly amazes us with the things he can say and do. He has entire conversations with you now and can remember things that happened months ago as if they happened yesterday. I know I'm a bragging Mommy, but he just seems so stinking smart that it's scary!

I know that we hit hurdles in 2007, but I have no doubt that 2008 will be a wonderful year indeed. We are going to look for the positive and kick the negative to the curb. We should hear something on the new house by the beginning of next week and in just a few short months we'll be attempting IVF#4, so we'll focus on getting healthier and happier in the meantime.

Here's wishing all of you a very Happy New Year filled with miracles and happiness... may all of your dreams come true.
