Lovely post. Happy New Year!

This is a great set of resolutions, I hope you can make them all happen!

Excellent post! If it's any consolation, I haven't been pregnant again this year, but I still can't wear my engagement ring!
It was wonderful to hear you say the part about "just being." That was something I needed someone to say to me today! I'm baking Dean's birthday cake as we speak (and crying...again...) and I realized that this entire year has been so much about watching for the next milestone or moving or getting new jobs that I haven't taken enough time to "just be." That will be a top priority in 09! Happy New Year!!

I'm so excited that you posted all of this (and like how you did it, to boot.) I've been cooking up one of these entries in my own brain as well.

I loved looking back at your years previous, knowing that the memories of being so care-free and just not knowing it pre-children must pass through your mind as they do mine, even if only for a moment. If nothing else, definitely don't beat yourself up over your current appearance - two babies in just over a year is a lot for ANY person. You rocked your NY&Co and your self esteem once and you will again, even with two kids. And you'll feel even better than you did before, because by the time you have two babies, taking care of yourself and looking good requires a serious choice and dedication (hi, my baby is almost four months old and am sitting at the computer in ginormous knit pants eating Ferrero Rocher's by the damn handful, Merry Christmas.)

I can't wait to see what 09 looks like. I'm really expecting good things for both you and me. :o)

you still a hot momma my friend!!!!

That's one of my favorite things about blogging, too: the building of an archive of my life, my family. I'm looking forward to making 2009 mine as well! Happy New Year!

If anyone can make those resolutions happen, you can!

Was the first picture (engagement) taken at your parents home? I love the red tile backsplash! So retro!

Are you taking three months maternity leave again with baby brother?

You have such a good head on your shoulders, I know you'll accomplish anything you set out to do. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself either...you do so many things so well!!! Don't forget that!! You rock! Here's to a wonderful 2009.

All those points sound good. The year will be just fine as it unfolds. 2009 will be the best year ever.

And here is to a very good year. As always, I wish you the very best. You do have a very nice house to live-in with your growing little family in 2009.
