2012 was good to us. We are happy and healthy. We can't really ask for anything more.
Amelia has grown so much. A little each day. It is hard to notice as it happens. Every parent wants to remember each stage his child so quickly passes through. I wish I could capture each day and put it in a bottle to open up later. My mind won't be able to remember all the things I want it to, and that makes me sad. I have done my best to document, but I have surely fallen short. There is the constant struggle to enjoy things in the moment as you experience them, and to capture pictures and videos to look back on later.
I have snapped thousands of photos, and written tens of thousands of words in the past 12 months, but it will never be enough to adequately recount her transformation into an amazing little toddler. I have a sense of how it happened for now, but that will quickly be replaced by her new milestones, and all the moments we share in 2013. I guess that is okay. It is just going to keep getting more fun, and she is going to keep getting more awesome.
I will keep on taking pictures and writing. Maybe I will even post to my blog a little more consistently in 2013. Maybe.
Have a safe and happy New Year friends.
- It is crazy how long it took me to write that in a way that didn't make it sound like we had a midget in the house. ↩
