2013 was a “goodun” as my country self likes to say. It was a pretty low key year for Eric and I…compared to others. We took in some shows and made some trips – but not quite as many as we usually do. Because, after all, we were cookin’ this little guy.
I’ll be honest…the year FLEW by. With all the baby excitement, it seems like it was over in the blink of an eye. But life changed so significantly this year. What an incredible blessing Ritter has been in our lives. Looking back over the year I realized I never posted all of these belly pics in one place. Kinda funny looking back on them now!!! It’s really neat to see how much I changed. I’ll be so glad I took all these one day!
And of course, the next week I had him. The doctor was right about my due date all along! And if you follow my blog you know all about our delivery of course! And here are some of my favorites from Ritter’s newborn shoot by the oh so talented Little Acorn Photography! Also check out their blog post about the shoot!
The year brought other blessings besides our sweet Ritter. I made the leap into the world of private practice and was welcomed into the family at Pitts and Associates. I’ve been there almost a year now and I’m so happy. It’s a wonderful group with wonderful clinicians and staff. I feel so blessed to be doing the work I’m doing. There were some uncertain times at the beginning of the year when my contract ended with Cooper Green – but the good lord opened a window when that door closed. This was such a good move for me. I look forward to growing my practice at Pitts for a very long time!
Favorite moments of 2013 ….
Meeting Josh Ritter with Ritter in my belly – probably one of the most surreal moments of my life. Now I play Josh Ritter music for Ritter while I feed him. Talk about a full circle moment…
Being surrounded by my special friends and family celebrating Ritter at our shower…
Celebrating my 1 year anniversary at the beach with Eric….
Welcoming Harrison Daniel Miller into the world…along with Nash Carter Presley, the Dewitt twins, and lots of other friends’ babies. Ritter has so many besties already!
We saw a couple of awesome Isbell shows! One at sunset in beautiful Railroad Park!
So many awesome things happened in Bham while we were pregnant too and since we’ve had Ritter we’ve tried our best to take advantage…we finally took in a few Baron’s games at Regions field downtown and actually got to see them win the Southern League Championship.
And we FINALLY got to attend a show at Iron City. Man how we waited for that one…and it was Isbell…on Eric’s bday…pretty perfect! I also got to see my football team win another national championship this year…can’t forget to mention that! And finally, we had a wonderful first Christmas with Ritter. It was a great year! I’m so grateful for the blessings in my life!
Ritter is 5 months old and he’s already such a little man. He has a huge personality. I’m so looking forward to watching him grow. 2014 is going to rock! Bring it!
