A (third) Year in Pictures

Every year, sometime in July (our anniversary month) I do a post of pictures of Luke and I from each month throughout the last year.

2009 is here
and
2010 is here

One picture for each month, some months are more exciting than others, but I love to look back and see all that we did!

And this year this post could not only be called "a look back at our year in pictures", but also "a look back at Megan getting bigger, bigger and BIGGER." It just keeps happening.

Our third year:

July
This picture is from the week we found out we were pregnant. What an exciting year we had ahead of us! Also, please note how cute my waist was.

August
The first pregnancy related purchase:


September
A Friday night dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant with some friends. I remember clearly this was the first night I wore a maternity shirt. I felt so pregnant. It was also during the phase of 2nd trimester hair AKA BEST HAIR EVER.
October
Our yearly trip to the fair! I enjoyed the food so much this year! :-)
November
Luke and I at Thanksgiving at my parents house. Would you believe this is the only pic I have? I look liked a cracked out preggo. I also have that cute lump between the belly and the "girls" from where the maternity pants end but the belly keeps going. This is a picture most wouldn't show on the internet for all to see. I rise above normal standards.
December

January
Our first baby shower
February
I don't have any pictures of us together from February. I have lots of me by myself with my big ole belly, but none of me and my love.

March
The next chapter of our lives:
April
Our first night out without the babe.

May



June
A weekend at the lake. So there it is our third year. Obviously this past year entailed the biggest change of our marriage, but it was an amazing change. We are still learning the in's and out's of marriage with a child and learning that Eli is now apart of our lives and has not become our whole life. We must still find time for each other along with finding time for Eli. It's all about balance.

What a fun third year it was!

Hi! I've never commented on your blog before (I don't think I have, anyway) but have been a follower for a few months. Just had to say I looked back at the posts you linked of you and Luke's first and second year married...and you have such great style! Your outfits are so cute...I'm inspired now with some of your combinations and hope I can mimic some with what I've got in my closet! :)

I love these yearly posts! Happy Anniversary! (I can't remember the exact date...)

Shelley said...

That's one thing I am a little worried about with this baby on the way. How do you balance taking care of the baby and spending quality time with the hubs?

What an exciting year. And I have to say, I don't know if it's because I'm tired or what, but your comments about your Thanksgiving picture made me laugh. I probably wouldn't have thought much of it except for your caption.
