Ringing in the new year...

This past year was nothing short of fabulous! God has blessed us in so many ways this year and we are truly grateful.

Crazy to think just one year ago we were a family of 2 1/2. I was 5 months pregnant. :)

In April of this year were blessed with our precious baby girl Aubree Kate Laymance. She has brought so much joy and happiness to our family. Seems like just yesterday she was this tiny.

So many wonderful things have happened this year, but here are a few of our biggest moments.

We have had...

First smiles.

Scotty celebrated his first Father's Day.

Aubrees first Halloween.

Aubree's first Thanksgiving.

First family photos.

Aubree's first Christmas.

And most fun of all is watching our baby girl grow developmentally and intellectually. We are thankful for her health and happiness.

I wish for continued good health and happiness for our family. Happy new Year!

A little holiday cheer...

I have been anticipating Our first Christmas as a family of 3 since the day I found out I was pregnant. I was looking forward to all of the family time, presents, traditions, and wonderful memories.

Aubree's first Christmas was so wonderful and memory filled, so much I can't wait till next year!!

One of the traditions of Christmas is making cookies for Santa. I couldn't wait to do this with Aubree, and of course she had to help!

Since I was little we have always gotten to open one presents on Christmas Eve and it was always new holiday pajamas. So Aubree had to get in on the jamma time fun! :) Her Christmas pajamas were precious! Love the ruffles.

I knew Aubree was going to get TONS of presents, but OMGoodness!! she got so much cool stuff! The mound of gifts was a reassurance of how blessed we are to have the family we do.

Oh! And she was a pro at opening them!

This is one of her favorite toys... Ellee the Elephant that blows balls in the air. :)

This Christmas was so wonderful. One of my favorite quotes comes to mind when I think about it.
"Don't cry that it's over, smile because it happened."

Seven On 11-27

So Aubree turned 7 months!! Yes, I said 7 months!! Can I just tell you that I LOVE this age. She is the sweetest, funniest, cutest thing ever! She is such a happy baby and we are so blessed to have her in our lives. Happy 7 months Aubree Kate!

Aubree's 7 month favorite things to do:
Roll over.
Sit up by herself.
Laugh out loud {especially when Daddy tickles her}.
{try} to drink from her sippy cup.
Put her bottom in the air and rock back and forth. {she will be crawling in no time}.
Pull of her {right} sock.

Aubree is now eating level 2 foods, 3-6 month clothes, size 2 diapers and at her last appointment she weighed 13.1 lbs! Love her little petite self! :)

Her next monthly birthday will be right after Christmas!!! Can't wait to open all of her gifts with her!!

Santa Loves Me.

It's Christmas time!!! I could not be more excited! I love Christmas and everything about it. Of course Aubree is too young for the 25 days of Christmas giving or Elf on the Shelf, but there is still so much be excited about! One thing being Christmas pictures, of course!!

I just love this one!

One of many first exciting things I couldn't wait to do when I found out I was expecting was our first family Christmas card! I can't wait to design them and find the right picture for it!

Here is peek into some of our Christmas family pictures!

This one I love.
She is the best present to our family!

So precious!
