the smallest chef

baby wyatt’s first days

Wyatt Isaiah Burns was born May 1, 2013 at 10:16pm. Clocking in at 6 lbs. 9 ounces, and 19 1/4″ long. That’s 3 ounces heavier than Eli, and a 1/4 inch longer, for those keeping track at home. The first few days have been wonderful, and Wyatt has adjusted well to the outside world… I [...]

christmas catch-up

We had a fun time visiting family and friends over Christmas this year, and I think we saw pretty much everyone we could have possibly seen. Eli enjoyed his first Christmas and all that goes with is – tearing open presents, eating tissue paper, enjoying bows and ribbons over the toys he received – you [...]

fall family fotos

Our friend Tiffany took some fun fall pictures of us a couple weeks ago just when the Nashville leaves were at their peak. It was our first real “photo session” since Eli was just a couple weeks old, and the challenges of keeping his attention were entirely different than they were nine months ago. Happy [...]
