January 4th, 2010: We found out we were having a girl!
March 4th, 2010: Our first childbirth class, scary.
April 3rd, 2010: My baby shower. I hope you all guessed that one correctly, most of you were there!
May 10th, 2010: My first day off on maternity leave.
May 26th, 2010: Little did I know, it was my last day of boredom. Ever.
May 27th, 2010: Nothing special happened on this date. Oh no, wait, now I remember… Gabrielle was born!
July 10th, 2010: My friend Jenny’s Santa Barbara wedding reception, a day of firsts… First time I left Gabrielle (with my parents), first time she took a bottle, first time I took a bottle (of beer!) in 2010 (don’t worry, it was the first of very few).
July 22nd, 2010: Comic-con in San Diego! My first whole day away from Gabrielle.
August 2nd, 2010: My first day back to work. Also, the first day I was able to use the restroom when I needed and eat when I wanted, not according
to Gabrielle’s schedule!
August 20th, 2010: The day I became an American citizen.
September 4th, 2010: Our trip to Monterey Bay, our first help-free vacation away from home with a baby. Fun but very tiring!

November 15th, 2010: Gabrielle crawls!
November 25th, 2010: Thanksgiving, Gabrielle’s first meal.
December 15th, 2010: Gabrielle can sit by herself, sort of out of nowhere.
December 23rd, 2010: Gabrielle can pull herself to standing!
Ugh, I started this game thinking “alright Ariane, let’s not make all of the items about Gabrielle”… Aaaaand in the end, all of the items are about Gabrielle, oops! I guess it’s not my fault, our lives have been all about her this year. Babies will do that to you. There were also note-worthy events that I couldn’t remember the date for, like Chris passing his PhD proposal (in late summer I think?), or our first time alone at home (in September?) so we could finally play Halo together… You know, important events like that!
Happy 2011 everyone! Hope you all have more interesting plans than we do for tonight!
