Off To A Rough Start

New Year's Day I could tell I was coming down with something. It was really no surprise since I had been getting basically zero sleep and Charlie had his first cold. Humidifiers, homeopathic baby medicine (which is all you can really give them), and many middle of the day baths to reduce a fever were all to no avail. Charlie was prescribed an antibiotic and Michael and I were barely making it ourselves. It was a really rough way to begin the new year but we made it through the first couple of weeks and now I feel like I can plan and get excited for the year ahead!

For Christmas my mom gave me this calendar, and I love it (thanks mom!)
I will continue to keep a schedule on my phone as well but I've realized and accepted the fact that I do best with a tangible calendar on which I can see an entire month's activities in one glance.

I came across a couple of free calendars online which are easily printable and I thought I would share them with you. They are beautifully designed; one more simple, the other for the more detail-oriented person.

If you like one or both of them, be sure to say thanks to the talented ladies who created them! Those who possess such creativity and then decide to share their creations (for free!) always astounds me. 

oh, one last thing...
happy new year!
