I love college football, but I especially love my team Auburn! There is nothing greater than watching the eagle fly across the field, the plains on gameday, or Toomer's corner after a win. I love the south and I love Auburn. I plan on taking LC to a gameday soon so I can take her pic in front of the Auburn sign and Toomer's corner. I want her to experience the things that make Auburn so wonderful. And yes, I will let her decide what team she will cheer for, considering my entire family are Alabama fans. But personally I think she looks beautiful in orange and blue!

War Damn Eagle!

Two Months!

Check Spelling

Lucy Clare--- you are two months old! I can hardly believe that time has gone by so fast. I clearly remember that intense day and all the crazy emotions I had waiting for you to arrive! Now, time is going by so quickly and I am trying my best to savor every moment with you and not take anything for granted!

What are you doing at two months old?

  • You weigh 11 pounds and 11 ounces!

  • You are currently in the 55th percentile.

  • You are 23 inches long.

  • You have begun to laugh--and laugh hard when something tickles you.

  • You are sleeping through the night. I put you down around 10 and you usually sleep until I wake you up at 6 for Gammy's house.

  • You love your mobile. I call the lion your "boyfriend" because when you get him in your line of vision, you start to smile and coo. It doesn't matter what you are doing, when you see him, you melt.

  • You are drinking 5- 6 ounces ever 3-4 hours.

  • We took our first trip to the beach and you loved it! You had a great time in the pool.

  • I took you to Auburn also. You did well on your car ride there and back.

  • You are in a size 1-2 diaper.

  • You are DONE with newborn clothes. Can't even squeeze you in them! 3 months are fitting you just about right.

  • You have a "lovey" that you like to feel when you are tired. I noticed you would rub the fabric of my shirts when I held you so I started giving you the softest little bunny blanket to rub. Now I have dubbed it your "lovey."

  • Pacifiers. You LOVE your passy. You will suck it like crazy and have figured out how to keep it in your mouth.

  • You make me so happy.

  • You are now staying at Gammy's during the day while I work. Maizie loves to play with her little sister. I can't wait to see what you do with those chihuahuas when you can walk or crawl!

As I said my prayers the other night, I told God that if He created you for the sole purpose of me praising His Name more, He achieved that goal. I praise Him constantly for you. I can't believe I deserve something so wonderful in my life and He made you for His joy and pleasure! He is an awesome God!

I look forward to your other exciting adventures for the next month! I can't wait for the pumpkin patch, Halloween, and Christmas with you! I love you baby girl, Daddy's sugar plum, and the Lord's sweetest child!

Fun in the Sun!

This past weekend the Burns' family celebrated Labor day at the beach with some good friends and family. This was LC's first big trip and first pool dip. We all had a blast and she was a great traveling baby (of course!) We will definitely be taking more trips!
And on a sad note, my maternity leave ends today. I must return to the land of first graders tomorrow. I am excited, nervous, sad, and emotional. I wish I could stay at home with my sweet one! I know she will be in good hands with her Gammy, but it doesn't make it any easier!
