Top Pictures of 2011...

Last year (sounds strange to call it that!) was an amazing, tiring, stressful and wondering year for the Bargain family.  We were lucky enough to have a new addition to our family when Son 2 was born after thinking for a long time we would never have another child.  Giving birth to him naturally was the most amazing thing I have ever done and the thing I am most proud of doing.  After a 36 hour labour I popped him out with no help from anyone, not even gas and air.  I can't say it wasn't painful (it was, very) but I felt utterly elated and never knew it could be like that.  I was the first person to hold him and he latched on immediately. Everything was perfect, and although feeding him "myself" wasn't easy, I stuck with it until just a few weeks ago when he was nearly ten months.  At the beginning, there were times when I thought I wouldn't get through three weeks of feeding but it does gradually get easier, and I think I have finally exorcised my demons about not exclusively feeding Son 1 without the help of formula. Here is a lovely clip of him just minutes after he was born...

In July hubby got a great new job with FREE parking (big consideration!) and although it's a bigger commute, he is so much happier and that makes all of us happier. We had a lovely holiday in the South of France AND Center Parcs.

AND I started writing this blog....I never thought I would have so many great responses and take so much pleasure from writing it. 

Anyway, enough blathering from me, here are some pics of our amazing year....
