New Year's Resolutions from Baby Pancake!


We ended 2011 with the news we were expecting a little bundle of joy.
And we spent the better part of 2012 getting ready for him 
and now that Baby Pancakes is here...life couldn't be more sweeter.  
And we are looking forward to 2013 with a heart of expectancy and great expectations 
as to what God has in store for each of individually and collectively as a family.

I could do a year in review but I am not 
because just like every year there were some highs and lows. 
 Successes and failures.  Birth and death.  
But through it all...
I had my family, friends and God and that's the most wonderful part about this life.

Without question the best part of 2012 was 
my successful pregnancy and delivery of Baby Pancakes 
and watching him grow into the cutest & smartest baby ever born!! 
Team Pancakes feels blessed beyond measure 
and in the new year I hope to continue to become the best version of myself 
as a believer, woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend & blogger.  

 I am not making any new year's resolution 
because I will most likely not keep them 
so I wanted to remind myself to live 2013 
from the perspective of my 4-month old son.  

1. Always wake up smiling 
2. Smile at someone you love everyday 
3. Give big hugs 
4. Give big wet kisses 
5. Do crunches just for fun 
6. Stand tall, fall down, stand up again 
7. Explore new things around you 
8. Play 
9. Laugh and smile in your sleep 
10. Do something you love everyday

I hope you join me in living 2013 like Baby Pancakes!!

Whatever you do for New Year's Eve...do it in love!!
And wherever the New Year finds you...
I hope it finds you in love, peace, harmony and laughter!


Great New Years Eve 2013
