The End of 2013

2013 was quite the exciting year! We found out we were having another girl. We found out where Ryan would be doing his residency. Ryan and I went on a couples vacation. Paige turned two. Ryan graduated. We moved back to Michigan. We had Hayden. Ryan started residency... and life just kept on getting busier. 

I feel bad for poor Hayden sometimes. I was so organized with Paige. I had a post and picture every month for her first year and for Hayden I have been slacking. I use my phone more than I use my camera so I am going to try to do better and document our little cutie.

Hayden is now SEVEN months old and I feel like yesterday she was born. Where did time go? She just started crawling and nothing is safe anymore. If she sees Paige leave her snack on the ground or my phone she gets all excited and makes her way over to it. She is FINALLY sleeping through the night and it is amazing! She loves fruit and tolerates veggies. She loves crackers and bread. She weighs 16lbs and is 26 inches long. And she is bald and beautiful. She is quiet and happy. 





Hope you enjoyed looking back at the last couple months. We were busy making memories! Hope your holidays were wonderful and here is to 2014. Hayden I am going to try to be better and capture all your moments!


  1. Thank you so much, I love to read your blog and see the pictures. It helps me to feel connected with you guys!!!! The girls have got so big, and they just are too adorable for words really. I love the picture of the two of them facing the Christmas tree, it is slightly darker than the others, and a bit magical!!!! So glad to see your lives progressing and see your happy smiling faces!!! Love you guys!!!!

  2. Lisa, your girls are perfectly adorable and you are so gorgeous! I just smile so big looking at your sweet family!

  3. I totally LOVE looking back on your year of adventures. The only problem now is that I can't see to type this comment . . . . too many tears in my eyes. The girls are growing way too fast and we don't get to squeeze and kiss them enough! Facetime is great but . . . . I can't wait till we see you guys again. We love you!! Mom and Dad Applonie
