Your Three Words | Bye Bye 2011.

I am dedicating my last Y3W post of the year as a farewell to 2011. I love Mandy's idea of doing a little recap so let's totally steal her idea. So much has happened this year, I can't even remember most of them. (Thank God for this blog, huh?) I thought I would break it up into months and try to remember a little something of interest for each of them.

So long 2011.

Quinn got her first tooth! I failed miserably  at the goal I set for myself every year. I suck. But there's always this year......ha. Although I am totally inspired by Jenni.

Quinn continued to grow like a weed and master sitting. Watching this video makes me sad. Quinn started crawling! Crawling!

I celebrated my 26th birthday and sadly said goodbye to one of the most amazing women I have ever met, my best friend's mom. Mama Grubb was an amazing mom. I tell my bestie all the time....I would be lucky if Quinn turned out to be like her and I know a lot of that has to do with Mama Grubb. 

We FINALLY bit the bullet and bought new bedroom furniture! This may sound like boring news, but you haven't seen the before pictures. I also stupidly thought I would lose 80 pounds doing this and Quinn finally says Mama!!!

Quinn celebrates her first Easter and I stupidly decide to cut 10 inches off of my hair. Ok, not stupidly because it was for a good cause, but I will never do it again!

I celebrated my first Mother's Day! Quinn starts walking.....and I can't remember why in the hell we ever encouraged it. This is also when mama ups her daily coffee count by one cup. We also spent our first ever weekend away without baby. {successfully!}

Anth gets to celebrate his second Father's Day! Our baby turns one. ONE. We spend the whole month trying to finish the pool and not die from the exhaustion of getting the house ready for her party. 

We took a much needed min-vaca with our best friends (and Quinny's BFF) and I got a raise at work!
July was a good month :)

The beginning of the worst for Triggs and Quinny survives her first earthquake!

By far the worst month of the year for us. Trigger continued to decline and we had no choice but to say goodbye to our big boy. On a cute note, Quinn experienced her first scraped knees

Jam.Packed.Month. We decide we don't want to be anywhere near our house and are happy that God's good timing stepped in with a trip to NC. Quinny scared the crap out of us with her first ever fever. After 15 months (and one day) of breastfeeding, Quinny moves on to bigger and better things :)  We make the decision to adopt Reagan. While I love her to death, she did not help my Trigger depression one bit. Anth and I celebrate our 3 year anniversary and Quinn and Reagan celebrate Halloween together in style.

We take a trip to the zoo! {Finally!}We almost kill Reagan here and here. We hosted our 1st Annual Friendsgiving! Of course celebrated Thanksgiving with our families and took a trip to Williamsburg.

Christmas officially got started in our household. Quinn continued to kill us with how stinkin cute she is. We left the baby at Lita's and had a crazy fun time in NYC and Quinn got to really enjoy Santa. Quinn also turned 18 months old, which I still can't believe.

I am kind of happy to see 2011 go, and am really excited for 2012! My sister from another mister is having her baby in May. I am so excited, I feel like it's my baby. Our little nugget will be turning 2! Who knows, maybe another attempt at motherhood will be in our near future? For now we are enjoying being happy and healthy and eating up every moment with our nugget.

Happy New Year to all of you!

Much love,


  1. I seriously love this post. Look how much she grew!! Amazing! I hope you have a fantastic 2012 with that adorable Quinn!
