2 yr wedding anniversary

How life does a turnaround in as little as 24 months! 6 months after marrying we moved into our current home, a privately rented 3 bed end terrace. We have our own drive and back garden though being that the landlord wants to sell in the future, we are reluctant to change much so the garden has stones instead of a lawn which is a shame.
I wasn't in touch with my Dad and I was up-set he wasn't at my wedding. A month after moving in here, I managed by chance to get in touch with him via the internet. He has since moved into the area and I enjoy regular contact with him.
Then of course is our 2nd baby. We decided to start trying on our 1st wedding anniversary and got caught straight away. A calm and content baby, she has been a breath of fresh air. Her older sister was a very colicky baby and would scream into the night till she passed out, whereas I have managed to regain my evenings since around 2-3 weeks. I'm sure she will have a rough time with teething but we are more mentally prepared, plus not so sleep deprived this time round.
Am hoping for different things next year. This year, we have just resigned for another 12 months in this house so we just want to see out our oldest' 3rd birthday, starting nursery, babies 1st birthday and Christmas, then hopefully we may be able to look into a move where we can decorate, do more with the garden and enjoy it more as our home. Fingers crossed.
