It’s hard to recall a point in 2016 that wasn’t about planning for Elowyn’s impending arrival, or enjoying every joyful, angst-ridden, happy, contended, frustrated and sleep-deprived moment since.
This year has been a rollercoaster of emotions accompanying the start of an exciting and sometimes scary journey. There have been some setbacks and some low points along the way. Just like any other year really.
But the highs, oh man they are something else. It’ll be almost 2017 by the time I finish writing this. I’m tired as usual and awake later than I wanted to be, as usual. Melinda and Elowyn are already in bed, hopefully sound asleep and not disturbed by the fireworks reverberating against the windows.
Next year will see lots of changes, for us and for Elowyn. I’m so excited to watch our daughter grow and learn. To be there to hold her hand, make her laugh, kiss away her tears and to sing her to sleep at night.
To celebrate the end of 2016 and the start of our journey as a trio, here are some photos of Elowyn. We look forward to sharing more in the years to come.
We love you so much Elowyn, Happy New Year baby girl.
Happy New Year to you all.
