Year In Review

 Wow, what a year we have had!  I thought a fitting way to show our wonderful year was to put pictures up from each month.  Hope everyone enjoys and thanks for everything all of y'all have done for us over the past year from positive thoughts to prayers.  We have had a crazy year and we are so blessed by each one of y'all.  We cannot wait to start next year with a bang and Emma Claire's first birthday.
January 17th, 2010 - Emma Claire was born 16 weeks early
 February - After 5 weeks on the ventilator, we moved to Vapotherm
 March - Family picture time, we finally get to hold Emma Claire for the first time since she was born for more than a few minutes and how wonderful that was and still is!
 April 26th, 2010 - After 100 days in the NICU at Big B we are leaving to come home.  This picture was our day of exit.  What a bittersweet day that was.
 April- Emma Claire is now HOME!!!!  PRAISE God!
May - Memaw (Matt's Grandmother) holding Emma Claire for the first time
 Mother's Day 2010 - So blessed to be a mother this year and have Emma Claire home too!

June - One of our first dinner outings with the Bryants.  Look how small the babes are
 July - Grandma Barnicoat comes to visit Emma Claire for the first time
 August - Emma Claire's baby dedication at Church with my parents, Nana and Papa
 September - Grandma Allen with Emma Claire.  We made a trip back to OKC show EC could meet all of her family and it was wonderful!
 October - Matt's parents (Nana and Pa) with Emma Claire in her Halloween costume
 October - Special friends from Spokane, WA (Judith and Michael) come for a wonderful visit.  They get to meet Emma Claire for the first time
November - Emma Claire with Poppy (he watches her during the day).  Emma Claire loves her Poppy and we are so thankful for him
December - What a wonderful Christmas we had.  I know I say this a million, but we are so thankful for everyone in our lives.  Our year started out a little nutty and it seems like we have not stopped.  Hopefully this next year will bring a slightly slower pace for us, but we shall see!  

Happy New Year Everyone!
