Happy New Year

2013 was a good year... here's a highlight reel...

Jan 2nd - 8pm (actually a little earlier) I went in to St.Joseph's hospital in Santa Rosa, California to be induced. They started the induction at exactly 8pm.

Jan 4th - 5:02pm Sonja Aurora Hartung was born at 7lbs 1oz and 21 inches via C-section.


Jan 8th - Finally got to go home after a 6 day stay at the hospital. It was nice to be home.


January 22nd - Sonja got her Social Security Card! She's official!

Feb 6th - 13th - Sonja slept through the night for an entire week... it didn't last.

Feb 18th - Sonja's first real smiles.. where she kept doing it and it wasn't gas or a fluke.

Feb 23rd - Our 5th wedding anniversary.. I cannot remember it... those early months I was a sleep deprived Zombie

March 20th - Jelly Belly Factory with Meghan (hey we liked it I had to include it)


By March 31st - Sonja was laughing

April 11th - Jeff's Birthday. We celebrated it small, with Jeff and his Dad and the epic disaster cake of 2013... 
sorry no photos of the cake here.


May 2nd - Sonja's first tooth came through the gums

May 12th - Mothers Day! I got breakfast in bed.. it was nice.

May 18th - The Color Run! It was so fun! I went with my friends in California.. who I miss dearly now. 



 May 26th- Sonja's first plane ride! We went to Lubbock to see family and watch my youngest sister, Rebekah, graduate from High School! YAY!!!


June 16th - Father's Day for Jeff! I don't remember what we got him... damn this memory

June 20th - Sonja's first time in a Baby Swing!!!

June 22nd - Sonja's first REAL dip in the pool where she let me put her in more than just her feet.


July 4th - Independence Day!!!


Also Sonja's 6 monthiversary!

July 13th - Said Goodbye to Akira. We loved her so much, but she wasn't going to stop peeing on our stuff and I wasn't able to get her the help she needed to stop.. so we found her a GREAT home with a Bengal owner who wanted a Bengal friend for the bengal she had who's sister had died. She takes very good care of Akira, feeding her a raw diet, a holistic vet, and even takes her to a cat chiropracter (who has supposedly cured her).. I feel I left her in good hands.

July 20th - we left Rohnert Park and stayed in San Francisco for the night with Puppy and Sonja.


July 21st - I flew alone with Sonja and Puppy to Dallas to see my sisters, Valerie and Meghan. I left Puppy with Valerie for the next few months (he's still there) while I stayed with my Mother in Law.
