The editorial board at TAT has just been informed that it is now 2014. In order to make up for the lack of posts in 2013, we humbly present a year in review of the TAT family.
First and biggest news event of the year was Levi’s discharge from the NICU exactly two months after his birth.
Note to readers: This photo preceded an agonizing night of me obsessively checking to make sure Levi was still breathing. It’s probably a good thing we don’t have a picture of the day after discharge..
Daddy was waiting when we got home, wearing the same shirt he was wearing when he welcomed Kaitlyn home (if that doesn’t qualify Steve for husband and dad of the year, I don’t know what will).
Aunt Sarah‘s camera came to visit.
We got some shots of her too.
Note to readers: VFN regrets to inform you that we are not done oversharing pictures of ourselves. Anyone tired of viewing these gorgeous images produced by the lovely and talented woman married to Steve’s brother should probably scroll down a bit. Thank you.
This cheesy moment brought to you by, I don’t know, Hallmark? Lifetime television for women?
The same day my sister got married, Levi was sealed to us in a temple ceremony.
More family pictures in color-coordinated outfits.
What is summer without a little Carhartt-themed photography?
And at night.
And disco bowled. It was like the best ten days ever (and I didn’t even mention the WNBA game, movies, sushi, water park, and roller coasters).
Back in Alaska, Levi tried solid food.
Kaitlyn licking the mini cake I made for Levi’s first birthday.
Ugly or not, I think Levi enjoyed it.
What Levi did not get to enjoy was his birthday presents. His big sister, big brother, and cousin took off with the toys as soon as they were unwrapped.
There you have it, proof that we existed in 2013.
