We spent the first day of the year as a family since Tony had the day off. We bundled up and walked to a park we had recently found in our neighborhood. Audrey played on the swings for the first time and we had a blast just being together.
Audrey also tasted her first "burrito" in January of last year, and almost ate the entire thing! She's always been a good eater from the beginning.
She also started a workout routine to help her shed some baby chub ;)
In February my parents met us in Southern Utah and we had a Vegas family vacation! It was Audrey's first time on vacation and she loved all of the extra attention from her grandparents.
February was also a time for sharing and caring. :)
In March Audrey learned the importance of reading
And we had our very own at-home photo shoot
Audrey had her first Easter this April,
...and learned to crawl the day after!
May was full of farmyard fun,
date nights at the frozen yogurt shop,
and the beginning to a summer of family hikes.
In June our little Otter Pop turned ONE and we had a bright and sunny birthday party for friends and family.
We got some amazing family portraits done for Audrey's 1-year mark,
Audrey started singing songs, and hasn't stopped since!
July was a really great month for us. Fireworks, summer BBQs, and....Audrey learned to walk!
In August we celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary and I got brave enough to leave Audrey overnight. She did really well and Tony and I got to have a really great night eating at a fancy restaurant and staying in an old-timey hotel.
September was packed with summer fun - Tony's birthday and our first family trip to Lagoon!
In October we got to celebrate Halloween and Audrey loved every second of it!
November was a month full of family, love, and being together. My sister got married, and we got to go on a family reunion cruise with Tony's family!
Christmas this year was wonderful! My family was able to come for a visit and we had a great time. Audrey loved it and especially loved all of her new gifts.
I'm a bit sad that another year has come and gone, but also excited about what 2013 has in store. It's wonderful and hard to see Audrey grow so fast, and the difference in the pictures from this time last year and now is just incredible. I miss my chubby little baby but I LOVE my rambunctious, talkative toddler.
Happy New Year! :)
