Burm Family Christmas Card and Year in Review

December 24, 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to our family and friends!

In years past, we've posted both our family Christmas card and a family year in review blog, but 2016 went by so fast with us primarily focused on Baby Burm and our pregnancy and travels, that we thought we'd combine the two this year.

We hope that you all have a great time celebrating the holidays and are wishing you a Merry Christmas – from our family to yours!



We are thankful that Vistaprint let us design our own Christmas card with their support this year, and that they also provided us with custom envelopes!

We designed our own infographic to illustrate what our year was like in 2016, below.

We hope that your year was as fun-filled as ours!

25 Week Bumpdate

December 18, 2016

Christmas is almost here, we're now more than 6 months pregnant and we can't believe how quickly this time has passed!

We become more excited every day to be closer to meeting Baby Burm, but this week, with the arrival of her crib and these nursery frames, it's really beginning to dawn on us that she'll also be arriving and filling out our family so very soon.

We can't wait to be her parents, but until then, we'll continue to enjoy our time preparing for her and the time we spend together as a family of three.



Nursery Crib: Union
Nursery Lamp and Pillows: Kirkland's



Nursery Print: TypoHouse

25 Week Bumpdate

Baby Size: Approximately the size of a cauliflower!

Clothes: It felt as though this week was the week that my bump turned into a belly, and now that it only continues to grow, I've primarily been wearing maternity clothing lines like Gap Maternity – and am feeling so much more comfortable now.

Gender: Girl! We still can't believe how fortunate we are to get to be parents to this sweet girl. We have had her name selected for the past decade that we've been together, and we'll be excited to share it with you after she's born.

Mood: Ready to enjoy the next 15 weeks or so that we have until we meet our baby girl, and ready to begin nesting and preparing a nursery for her now.

Movement: I've been feeling her move non-stop after I've eaten and throughout certain periods of the day and night – she still appears to be a night owl like her Dad!

Sick or Queasy: Yes, I've accepted that I am one of the unlucky mothers who has nausea up to the third trimester, but I remain faithful that this will soon pass.

Sleep: I’m continuing to sleep less and less throughout the night due to her activity and my bathroom breaks, so I'm taking naps whenever I can get them!

Symptoms: My appetite has really increased this week, with cravings for green vegetables like brussel sprouts, green beans and salads.

Wedding Rings: On!

What I Miss: Being comfortable napping on the couch and sleeping on my back.
