So I hadn’t realized just how long it had been since I had last updated our blog. Apparently it was my ultrasound and since then it has been almost a year and Kelsen is officially 6 months old in 40 min. So yeah, it needed to be updated.

I’m not one of those to give tons and tons of details about every day this year, but here’s a quick run down.

March= got bigger, but was still cute and comfy pregnant.
April = finally really showing and having fun thinking about baby stuff.
May = starting to sleep less, get too fat.
June = had contractions daily, please say I’m going to have this baby today. Oh, and Dave had a birthday.
July = well, crap, we’re late on having a baby. Oh wait, there SHE is! The best baby ever, Kelsen Alivia Baughman was born at 1:56 AM on July 2. She’s just gorgeous and perfect.
August = Oh, hey, we actually have to take care of this baby thing. What do we do with it?
September = Getting used to a 2 month old who is really a 4 month old in disguise. Standing smiling, cooing, rolling over.  Had a birthday. Oldest brother Jason got married.
October = Had our 3 year anniversary. Kelsen started scooting all around.
November = Hey, that adorable child is getting teeth! Except they aren’t coming through and now she’s screaming. Eh, oh well. She’s still cute as can be. Adam left for Basic Training with the Air National Guard. Got an Xbox, became obsessed with Call of Duty.
December = Marshall (bro-in-law) got back in from Iraq and got to meet Kelsen for the first time. Christmas was fun. Kelsen’s mobile and very loud. Still no teeth, though the evidence that it’s coming shows daily. Ended the year hanging out at Brooke and Tyler’s, watching Alan rock out on Guitar Hero.

Yeah, that’s it in a nut shell.

Short and to the point as that may be, it was a great year. Although there were plenty of frustrating and trying times to being new parents, the good tremendously outweighed the bad which is the most you can ask of a year. We are so blessed with a wonderful baby who has a smile and laugh that will melt anyone’s heart. She’s strong, healthy, and super friendly (although stubborn as heck – she gets that from me) and we couldn’t be more proud to be her parents.
God’s kept us safe and healthy; we’re in a really good place in life. We’re looking forward to all the adventures that 2010 has in store!
