We have had such a wonderful year!  Lots of wonderful things happened during 2011!  I can't express how blessed I feel & how lucky I am to have such a sweet, loving, caring & healthy little boy!  He is my heart & soul & I only pray 2012 doesn't go by as fast as 2011, so I can soak him up at this age just a little bit more before he turns into a little boy, & no longer a toddler!  :(

I am looking forward to what God has in store for me & Ryder during 2012 & can't wait to find out!
