I've been writing and re-writing a new year's post for a week now. I just can't seem to get it right. It's hard to resist the inclination to rehash everything we've been through this past year. Sure Aaron and I have had ups and downs before, but not like we did in 2008. In a lot of ways this past year feels like THE year for us. I have never experienced such sadness, such fear, and such frustration. I have also never felt such absolute joy, such clear perspective, and such complete love as I have since Lola and Jackson were born. And when thinking back on this momentous year I find myself in a rare position. I am at a loss for words. No matter what I write it doesn't seem to accurately portray how I feel (and how I felt). So I'm going to stop re-writing my Happy New Year Post, take a break from 2008, and post some pics I've taken in 2009.
Fun with Peas!Look mom, I'm walking!A common sight around the Freedman house, Jackson pushing aside his toy in favor of his sisters'.Jackson has already established himself as a climber.I just love the expression. I wonder what he is thinking...Awww...
