Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 2008 was a pretty good year for us, and we hope that 2009 brings even more happiness to our family and all of you as well.

Since there aren’t many hopping parties geared for two-year-olds and three-week-olds, we spent a quiet New Year’s Eve at home with Lex’s parents, but don’t say the Friedmans don’t know how to celebrate in style! We had a rocking time enjoying our scrumptious cheese fondue dinner and a delectable chocolate fondue for dessert:

How did I spend the moment when 2008 ends and 2009 begins? Unlike when Anya was a newborn, I was actually awake this time, but I was upstairs in my room nursing Sierra. I had hoped she would finish in time to be tucked into bed so I could be downstairs to watch the ball drop, but it didn’t work out. Still, I can think of worse ways to start a new year than holding my new baby close to me while looking at my first baby sleeping peacefully in her bed on the video monitor.

January 1 is my dad’s birthday, so we joined my family for dinner and cake to celebrate on New Year’s Day.

    That’s how I spent my New Year’s too, nursing Elliot. We were the only ones awake though.

    In our house Anya was the only one asleep. I kind of wish I had been sleeping too, though.
