Year in Review

Before moving on to 2008, I want to take a moment to reflect on the changes that life brought us in 2007.

JANUARY - I didn't have a blog yet, but can remember that we announced our pregnancy to close friends and extended family. I also began helping direct the middle school color guard at FMSHS.

FEBRUARY - Still no blog... I passed my Professional Certification exam for teaching though.

MARCH - The world still had to wait one more month before getting to ready what was on my bloggy mind. I don't remember much exciting happening... except having my first Spring Break since college!

APRIL - My blog, Jenn's Journal, arrives! Here's the first sentence of my first blog post: "Oh my... I've wanted to try and get into keeping a journal of my pregnancy for a few months now."
Here's my favorite picture from my blog in the month of April: This is Charlotte at 28 weeks.MAY - First Sentence: "Even though Bruce thinks he is being clever by publicly suggesting the name Theophilus, please know, it is not under serious consideration."
Favorite Picture: Us at my brother's wedding.
JUNE - First Sentence: "Wow, I have only 10 weeks left (roughly) until I get to meet Baby Sabin face to face."
Favorite Picture: Bruce goofing off at Universal Studios.

First Sentence: "There, I said it - I love being pregnant!"
Favorite Picture: Me pouring over the many blessings we received at our 3 baby showers!
AUGUST - First Sentence : "Baby Sabin isn't even officially here and I am beat."
Favorite Picture: I think this is one good looking family!

SEPTEMBER - First Sentence: "Wow, it sure has been a while since I posted a blog!" (This is also the month I began blogging at FamilyMusings.com.)
Favorite Picture: (Okay, I'm cheating al ittle here... this is a jumpcut video with lots of pictures.)
jumpcut movie:L-O-V-E Charlotte

OCTOBER - First Sentence: Infant Potty Trainings - This is soo.... not for me!
Favorite Picture: Charlotte's 1st visit to Bok Tower.

NOVEMBER - First Sentence: "Charlotte has shoes for months to come due to a GREAT sale I found online at Darling Shoes. " (By the way, this was my bloggiest month with 24 posts.)
Favorite Picture: Grumpy & Charlotte hanging out.
DECEMBER- First Sentence: "There are lots of blogs in the blogosphere that give away stuff." (Mine isn't one of them!)
Favorite Picture: Charlotte's first Christmas ornament, from Grandma.

I must say, this post took me a lot longer than I expected. I got caught up reading all of my old posts. Things that I thought were really witty, funny, or insightful at the time don't seem so much anymore. I think I've gotten better as a blogger since I first started in April, but I know I have a long way to go until I really get good. In the mean time, thanks for bearing with me and have a happy new year!
