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 [...]

After the initial excitement of mom and dad coming to get him in the morning passes, he immediately starts looking for his furry little friend.

petting zoo

Steph and I love to see the elephants, giraffes and other big animals at the zoo. But those zoo people had their thinking caps on when they also included a petting zoo at the Nashville Zoo – the kids love it! There you can get up close and personal with those rarest of all barnyard [...]
