2018 is going to be the best year of my life

 
 This photo is pretty accurate about how I feel about life right now. I'm tired and feel beat down by life, but I love this little nugget and my little family.

2018 is going to be the year that my baby turns 1. She's going to learn how to talk, how to feed herself, how to walk and how to do a million little things that will be a great surprise and joy to me as they happen.

This year is going to be full of change and growth, not just on her part, but on my part as a person as well. I want to embrace the change and learn to better live in the moment so that none of them pass me by.

Right now, things are a struggle, tbh. My mom, who watches Lazy Baby while Mr. LL and I are at work, has to have surgery and won't be able to watch her anymore (at least for 5-6 months) so we are having to put Lazy Baby in daycare. The cost is overwhelming to think about, but my mom has offered to help us some with this burden (though I really don't want it to be a burden on her). We had hoped to save to buy a house this year, but I guess life had different plans for us.

Then there's also just finding a daycare that can take her at all. Sigh.

But, it's only January and there is a lot more of 2018 to come, so I'm not going to count the year as a wash just yet.
