Best of 2017

2017 was one for the books.  I can't believe how fast it came and went. About as fast as my pregnancy with Mia!

The biggest event this year hands down was the arrival of our 4th baby, Mia Claire. She arrived in May and we have been blessed to spend the past 7 months with her. She completes our Cruzan crew! 

We have celebrated lots of firsts with Mia this year!  It's crazy how much she has changed with each holiday!

This year our babies have gotten just a little bit older. We love seeing how much they have learned and grown with each birthday.

 Ava turned 7 and she is our teenie bopper. She loves all those corny Disney Kids shows and is obsessed with slime.

Lily turned 6. She is spunky and silly and my forever emotional girl. She has a very generous heart and idolizes her big sister. She is Levi's partner in crime too!

Levi has changed the most this year. He went from being a baby to a big boy in a matter of months. He has the funniest personality and is definitely living up those terrible twos! He is daddy's best friend!

2017  was a year for firsts too! 

-first trip to Chicago
-first hair cuts
-first time at a new school
-first time riding on a bike solo
-first time for glasses
-first tooth lost
-first time carving pumpkins
-first Christmas
-first Disney adventures (for Levi and Mia) 
-first car trips and vacations 

We enjoyed making memories this year! 
- We sold our first home and bought a new one! 
-Ava (2nd) and Lily (Kindergarten) both started new grades and are thriving at their new school!
-Noah traveled for work. A lot. Which meant the kids had some one-on-one time with their aunt Sarah and uncle Bubba! I also realized how lucky we are to have such a great support system. I would not have been able to get through without the help of my mother-in-law and our friends! 
-Mia went on her first car trip this summer to go her first graduation and wedding.
-Noah and I celebrated 9 years of marriage. We have never been closer and I love the life we have built together. I can't wait to celebrate the big 10 in 2018! 

My life has never been so chaotic, but it has been so fulfilling. I am blessed and I can't wait for 2018! 

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2018 is filled with love & happiness!
