The tree is up!

Audrey loves it! She doesn't bother with it too much (unless I force her to sit next to know, for photo ops.)

We've graduated from pulling things out of the cabinet to actually getting INTO the cabinet!

So much to be thankful for...

We had a very busy Thanksgiving! We visited with 3 sets of grandparents, cousins, aunts & uncles. It was exhausting! But I was reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. It's hard when we're so busy with day-to-day life to stop and be grateful for what we have. Everyday I look at our sweet Audrey and I am so thankful for everyone and everything I have in my life. There's nothing like looking at the face of your own child to make you take pause and give thanks for everything that helped bring her here.

Being away from home all day was rough on Audrey. She had a meltdown during Thanksgiving Dinner so Dad took her and got her to fall asleep. She napped a total of 90 minutes, most of which was in her car seat. She also has her 5th tooth coming in (top right.)

The countdown until Christmas Break officially begins! 26 days :)

If this doesn't make you laugh...

then you are dead inside:


This is the reason a baby needs her own cabinet in the kitchen:

What a big week!

So what started off to be a terrible week is turning out to be pretty awesome. On Sunday Audrey woke up with a terrible runny nose (first one ever.) She took a good morning nap but absolutely refused her afternooner. She has been such a solid and routine sleeper that I was completely thrown off. Luckily her nighttime sleep was uninterrupted (lucky for ME.) I was worried that she had a cold but when I looked at her gums, there were 2 white teeth getting ready to poke thru!! Pretty exciting. So now Audrey has 2 bottom and 3 top teeth. At what point do I need to worry about braces?

Tonight we were playing after dinner and trying to get her to stand by herself. I was taking regular snapshots...

...when all of a sudden she took TWO steps!! Chris and I looked at each other like, "Did that just happen?!?"

So, we're pretty excited. I'm still completely dreading the walking phase, but it's just so much fun when you see your baby do new things! What a fun milestone...

Time is flying by!

Not much to report on the Burns home front. Audrey is great. Soon she'll be one, which means I need to start planning her birthday party. Then of course the holidays are right around the corner. It's such a busy time of year, but I love it.

Happy Halloween!

Audrey is so cute as a ladybug, it's scary!!

We had pictures taken with her 2 cousins, Bella (9 months) and Skylar (11 months)

We had a busy day! We spent the morning at my school's Fall Festival. She loved watching all the games and seeing all the kids. Then we celebrated Grandpa's birthday by going to Captain Billy's for dinner. She was exhausted by the time we got home and slept like a rock. Next year we might actually try trick-or-treating!
