It’s the end of the year! I’ve got that usual ‘wow, hasn’t this year flown by’ feeling that I always seem to get and then when I look at the photos below I also can’t believe how much we’ve changed. Of course there is one very obvious change of gaining a new member of family. Athena was born in May and guaranteed that 2016 will always have a very special place in our hearts. But aside from the extra little person in the photos there are other, less glaring changes. The bags under our eyes from so many sleepless nights, the toddler that seems to have grown in both height and independence this year, and then the closeness, the way our family has just perfectly settled into life with four members. The love.
Of course, that’s not to say that 2016 hasn’t been without difficulties. It took a while to get used to our new family dynamics especially since Athena refuses to sleep but I feel like this month we’ve finally hit our stride. And it leaves me so excited for 2017. For the adventures that lie ahead for us.
