Our Year in Review: 2012


We celebrated Kai's 4th birthday on January 13th.  He was exhausted from all the celebration!


Nolin expressed her dislike for the green stuff outside!  Luckily she eventually learned to like grass!  :)


We watched a beautiful relationship develop between Nolin & Kai.


Nolin began walking on April 7th!  

We celebrated Nolin's 1st Birthday on April 26th!

& we also celebrated Nolin's 1st Easter.


We made a decision to provide birthday "experiences" each year.  So at the beginning of May we took Nolin to Cincinnati to visit family & enjoyed an afternoon at the park. 

Nolin had some news to share.  We found out that we were expecting Tiny Markham #2!


Nolin took her first flight!  We traveled to San Antonio, Texas with Daddy to a conference. 


This is the month that Nolin was completely weaned from nursing.  My heart was broken.

We also found out this month that Tiny Markham #2 was a boy!  We even decided on the name of Harris William


Nolin had her first carousel ride.  She absolutely loved it!

We also celebrated mine & Paul's birthdays this month.  I turned the big 3-0! 


Paul & I celebrated 7 years of marriage on September 11th!


Nolin helped to carve her first pumpkin!  We also celebrated Halloween with family & friends!  Nolin wasn't thrilled with her pink poodle costume at first!  :)

Paul accepted a new job at the University of Washington - Bothell.  So our family began preparing for the big move.  This also meant that I would become a stay-at-home-mom in January!


Nolin felt baby Harris move in my belly & she was over the moon!  I knew she was going to be the best big sister!

I dealt with some feelings of guilt as the time of Harris' birth grew near. 


We enjoyed Nolin's second Christmas & she really seemed to have fun this year!

We celebrated the birth of our precious baby boy on Saturday, December 29th at 3:27 am.  Harris William weighed 8 lbs 2 oz & was 20 1/2 inches long.

We are already seeing Nolin & Harris' relationship grow...

We packed up our house & have shipped everything to Washington State.  We will soon get settled there.

I cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store for the Markham family!  Big adventure, I'm sure!  ;)
