Parenthood brings about a whole new take on the holiday season. Luckily we have a few years before Rowan is old enough to really know what all the holiday hoopla is about; by then maybe we will have acquired all the necessary accoutrements for a truly American Christmas. This year we did not opt to wrap our porch and palms in lights like all the neighbors, but we did get a tiny tree. All of our ornaments are still in storage, so anything larger would have been quite bare. It is cute and Rowan-sized. I am looking forward to an exciting new year full of many new firsts and hopefully some exciting photographic projects.
This past year was a pretty exciting one as well. I started the year off hunched over a toilet with morning sickness in a friend's San Francisco apartment. The highlights of 2009...
- Pho in San Francisco...one of the few things I could eat at the time:)
- Surprising my dad for his retirement/60th birthday party
- Rowan was born
- Got my first digital SLR
- 5th wedding anniversary
- Orchid photo show
- Rowan's first smile
- Rowan's first laugh
