2012 was a year that will never go unnoticed. It was a crazy, busy, and exciting kind of a year. One that I will never forget. These are just a few of the highlights through 2012.
The house renovation was put into overdrive in anticipation of baby boy's arrival. Specifically, the deck, kitchen, and Burke's room.
Thank goodness for handy husband and dads with super powers.
Burke's room was finally now the focus. Thank goodness Burke ended up making it to his due date, or he would have had to sleep in the garage. ;)
Other festivities happened in February...
Cade turned 3, I had the last baby shower before Burke arrived... held by sweet, sweet friends, and Valentine's Day ... I even received a card from my unborn child. :)
Way too hard to pick pictures to represent this month, but here are some of my favorites:
Officially baby ready:
The name... , sweet Bailey wanted some attention too, blue toes to welcome B, and a kiss from Daddy.
All taken on March 2, 2012
... you knew I wouldn't be able to hold it to one collage did you?
Getting ready to head home! I love the photo of Ryan holding the bottle next to Burke... it really puts into perspective how tiny he once was!
AND A LITTLE MORE MARCH :)...
DIY newborn photo shoot, first bath, and first trip to Cullman to see all the great grandparents!
Billy, Ryan's dad, was inducted into the Cullman Sports Hall of Fame, 1st Easter, 1st A-Day in Jordan Hare, and a trip to the Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park.... where I caught cuteness in a yawn.
Hand painted piggy band from NaNa, Burke and Dr.
Seuss Snooze, and Burke in a robe... cracks me up.
First trip to the zoo, being silly after bath time, girlfriends (Anna Bell) were made, and my parents enjoying Burke after a hard days work on the house.
Great shot with Ree at the lake house, Bailey dog left us :(, Father's day, and chillin at the duck pond.
Deck progress, being silly :), best friend (Woody) was born,
and mom's last day with my little muchkin before it was back-to-school.
The three amigos headed to the park, Burke and Dad, Burke and mom, and the beginning of making Burke's food.... yum for sweet potatoes!
September brought lots of weekends spent at the lake, Auburn football, and quality cousin time.
It was also when Burke turned 1/2 year old.
One happy baby.
Black bean go-tee, eating things other than solids... how about dads nose?, pickin out our pumpkin, Halloween=cutest tiger...ever.
He fit in our pumpkin!, Mr. Stache, looking like a big boy, and 1st Thanksgiving and haircut!
I loved looking at not two, but three stockings hanging from our mantle this year. :),
Burke loved trying to get to the bottom ornaments... I'm pretty sure this is what prompted him to crawl!, Uncle Jon and B, and the adorable Coleman boys on Christmas Eve.
Gram and PawPaw, Ree and PaPa, Mom and Dad, and lots of awesome family :)
As for a favorite picture,
this one sums it up.
Does it melt your heart too?
THANK YOU LORD FOR A SPECIAL AND BLESSED YEAR!
OUR CUP RUNNETH OVER.
