On New Year’s Day, we woke up early and watched the Rose Parade on television. Parts of it anyway. Just like last year, except with two little girls on the couch instead of one.
I knew it would be hard to believe there was ever a time when Soledad wasn’t a part of this family. And just 10 months in, it is so, so hard to believe.
But that’s the difference between this year and last. Two little girls where there used to be one.
I don’t think, in all of 2013, that we ever had a good night’s sleep. We ate more takeout than we should have and read fewer books than we would have liked.
But, oh my.
We had fun.
And we are just hitting our stride.
