Usually, annual posts are done on Dec 31st. But for us, the biggest year of our lives started with this:

It’s been quite a year since then:
We bought and moved into our 1st home.

I drove to Idaho to work on my horse photography.

The Outer Banks (my home) was hit hard by Hurricane Irene.

I finally caught a clear Seattle sunrise on camera.

Rico and I went whale watching for the first time.

Our exterior house remodel was finally completed!

I was put on bedrest for the remainder of the pregnancy (which turned out to be only 2 weeks long).

Nana Erika finished the awesome mural and threw us a baby shower!

Then our lives changed forever on October 12, 2011 at 9:42am.

And since then, everything we’ve done has revolved around this little stinker!
