Year in Review

Although we are already 8 days into the new year I still wanted to recap 2011 in the Bangert family. 2011 was a remarkable year filled with blessings beyond belief! Sit back and enjoy a recap of 2011 from our family!

January marked the half way point of my pregnancy and we found out we were having a GIRL!!DSC09746Copy_thumb2

In February we headed east to Chicago to visit Kyle’s sister, Melanie and her husband Steve. I think it’s official that it’s an annual trip now!

In March we had some extended time off work for spring break. We took advantage of that time and worked in the nursery. The main project was this amazing closet organizer that Kyle installed!

The end of April my amazing sisters threw me a wonderful baby shower!!

I helped plan one of my bestie’s bachelorette party! My Mom was so kind to come along and watch Adelyn so I didn’t have to leave her for the whole weekend!

And when this sweet girl was just 1 month old we were able to capture her sweet smile on camera!

September was a hard month. I had to go back to work after spending 11+ weeks home with my sweet girl. But there were some definite highlights, we celebrated our nephew’s 1st birthday!

November was a month of firsts for me a as a Mom. I had to have my first overnight away from Adelyn. It wasn’t easy. Sad smile In the beginning of the month I had a work trip for 3 days in state and then at the end of the month I had a week long trip to Las Vegas. Now that was fun, but I still missed my baby girl SO much!DSC01148

Adelyn went from doing the tripod to full on sitting on her own this month!

December was nothing short of magical! Having Adelyn this year made Christmas extra special! Not only did we celebrate Adelyn's first Christmas, but Kyle finished his Bachelor's degree! Needless to say he was very excited for this!!IMG_0290IMG_0497
