Happy (or not so happy) New Year!!

We're not starting off the 2012 year exactly as planned, but that's ok.  Hampton and I have both been sick since last Tuesday with the cold crud.  It has not been a last fun week in 2011 to say the least.  However, there was a slight improvement in his behavior last night, but he still can't shake the coughing and sneezing.  He seemed a little perkier last night than he has this week.  This past week he was PITIFUL.  Whiny, clingy, ill, but hey, I can not blame him.  It's a yucky feeling and it's NOT fun.  Especially when there's nothing you can really do for them.  I feel so helpless when he's sick. 

Poor little guy :(

Needless to say, we were supposed to ring in the new year with our friends Scott, Jessica, and Logan in Birmingham, but unfortanately those plans got post poned till next weekend when hopefully everyone is feeling like themselves again.  You see, Jessica and I were preggo at the same time.  We spent last New Year's going to dinner and a movie with our big 'ole preggo selves and our oh so sweet significant others so we thought it would be fun to continue our tradition this year and baby boys could play together. 

So crazy to look back at this!!

And now this year our little bundles of joy are here with us!

Oh well.  Things happen.  At least we have next weekend to look forward to!! :) 

We still rung in the New Year by going to eat at Rodeo for some yummy mexican for our last meal in 2011 and lounging in our p.j.'s at home the rest of the night.  We were able to spend some quality time with each other and Daniel and I even watched a movie once little man was put to bed.  It was a quiet and relaxing night, but I wouldn't have had it any other way! 

I did manage to snap a few pics of itty bitty playing before bath time last night.

Happy New Year!

Laughing at Daddy...something we haven't seen much of this week. :(

Almost night night time...can you tell?! ;)

Thankful for all of the blessings God has showered us with this past year and years past.  I look forward to seeing what He has in store for our little family in 2012.  I hope everyone had a fun, safe New Year's Eve and may God richly bless you in the new year!


  1. Aww...poor little guy! I'm glad he is starting to feel a little better and hope that you both are completely better soon!

  2. Thanks friend! Me too!! Happy New Years to the Byars clan. Must catch up soon.
