Here we are! Last day of 2015! Obviously, this year was a big year for us. The birth of our baby boy rocked our world in the most absolutely wonderful way. 2015 was full of new adventures, loving Charleston, making new friends, and soaking up this fun time as a family of three. After this amazing year, I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for us! Here are 15 memories in photos for the year 2015!
1. Emmett’s first moments in the world!
2. Baby’s first friend
3. Lots of time spent at the beach
4. And the new pool!
5. Trip to Minnesota in June
6. Lots of visitors including Taylor and Kirsten…
7. Chris and Shirley…
9. And Maddie and Lindsey (and grandparents too many times to count!)
10. Weekend get-away to Austin
11. Baby’s 1st Halloween
12. Weekend in Alabama
14. Weekend in the mountains
15. And Christmas!
We took the boat up the Ashley River today to see the plantations waterside with Grandma Barb and Grandpa Jim. It’s safe to say we have a baby who loves being on the boat!
For my birthday my sister signed us up for a cooking class at Southern Season. Last night was the class and we had so much fun! The theme of the night was Christmas Mains which was awesome because we got to eat all sorts of delicious fancy meats! Here’s the menu from last night: Pan Seared Duck Breasts with Cherry Port Sauce; Garlic Herb Rack of Lamb with Sausage Stuffing; Salt Crusted Whole Fish with Lemon Butter Potatoes; Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Morel Cream Sauce
It was a hands-on course so we actually got to do the cooking instead of just watching which made it extra fun. Great food, delicious wine, fun classmates and spending time with my sister made for the a perfect birthday present!
Today Emmett turned 10 months old!
He is at such a fun age. He’s always smiling and flashing us his little teeth (two more on top are coming in!) and is so giggly especially when we play “peek” or if Dad holds him upside down and we tickle his tummy. He is a really fast crawler and still loves to stand and work on his balance – he’s really good at it!
I love watching him play because you can really see his little brain working now!
Emmett sways to music and is mesmerized when Ryan plays the guitar. I can’t believe our baby is 10 months old already! It’s a little sad to think how fast the time has gone but it is so fun to watch him grow and learn new things!
In the past week, Emmett’s had the pleasure of meeting both Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Santa wasn’t nearly as scary as he looks in that picture. Clearly I thought he was fun!
