Wow.  2015.  In high school that was a year I couldn't even really imagine.  It was hard enough imagining how old I'd be in 2000.  Ha.

Which means we're done with 2014.  It seems like it was a very long year.  I spent a lot of time yesterday just trying to remember the first half of it.  Last night, I finally took down the wall calendar we keep track of life on and looked through it.  January was the month of too much snow and missed school.  March was our trip to Texas.  March was Ching's heart episode.  July we got George and Peppa.  August we went to Nashville.  September Noah started at his new school.   September we got Ching's new car.  October we got married.  Wow.  December saw the year end with my adoption of Noah being all legal and done.  More wow!

It was an expensive year.  But, it was all money well spent. 

As for Noah.  My goodness.  The progress he is making is really picking up it's pace.  He talks so much more and we understand so much more of what he's saying.  He moved into his big boy bed and loves it.  He loves his school and teachers and classmates this year.  And he's finally just about potty trained.  It seems there is a on/off switch with things for him.  He won't do anything until he's ready, but when he is ready it's a done deal.  For now he's still in a diaper over night, but I'm not sure how long that will be necessary.  He's at 95% of the time telling us he needs to pee instead of peeing in his undies.  And poop, well, he has very strong control over that, but I think he's making progress.  He currently loves Sheriff Callie and Fireman Sam.  He loves music and singing along and playing his guitar and rocking out in the car.  He was more into the holidays this year.  He still loved all the Halloween pumpkins, but wasn't into getting dressed up or trick or treating.  We got a Christmas tree this year and he really enjoyed that.  He loves all the Christmas lights on all the houses. 

I have no idea what 2015 hold in store.  So here's to health and happiness.
