Well 2010 what can I say? You started off pretty nice. We went to Vegas with our little wiggle tucked safely inside my belly.
Then we took Wiggleman to the AFC Championship game!

Then we our plans changed drastically and our baby Aidan was born.

Our world was flipped upside down with the diagnosis of a massive brain bleed, but we held on to hope for our little fighter.

We said hello and goodbye in 8 short days.
We spent the rest of the year trying to piece our hearts back together. We started off using tape, but that didn't hold very well and soon we realized that there was no magical fix.

In June, we found out that we were expecting baby # 2.

The rest of the year has been filled with sadness, fear, happiness, laughter, anxiety, grief, more laughter and meeting a ton of new people.

2010~ You were the worst year of my life, but more importantly, you were the best. I met my son, got to love on him and care for him. I grew up,was taught to love deeply, laugh at the little things and remember that everyone handles things differently.

Aidan Christopher,
I'm so glad that we got to meet you and to be your parents. I'm sorry we couldn't protect you, but your story and life have touched so many people that I know there was a reason. You are the light of my life and I love you so incredibly much.

Baby boy, I'm so glad you are in our lives. You have given mommy and daddy a lot of hope and happiness. Every little, and now big, kick jab and roll just make us smile. You already have your own little personality and I'm so excited to meet you and get to know you on the outside. I promise that even though we will make mistakes, mommy and daddy will love you forever and protect you to the best of our abilities.

I love you Aidan Christopher and Nugget
