Hi! It's been awhile since my last post. Our computer got a virus and totally crashed so we had to order a new one. It won't be here for a few more days, so I am over at my mom's using her computer. And I can't figure out how to upload pictures on her computer, so I can't post the super cute pics we have of Audrey's first plane ride. My Grandma passed away last weekend so we had to travel up to New Jersey for the funeral. My Grandma lived a long life and it was her time. She died peacefully in her sleep. Now she is Audrey's special angel!

I was SO nervous about the plane ride. I literally had a panic attack on the plane. She started fussing and I just kept thinking "What if she won't stop crying and the whole plane hates us???!!!" I almost threw up I was so nervous! But James gave her a bottle and she calmed right down. Then she slept the rest of the flight! Audrey also did great sleeping in the hotel. It was a crazy few days for her. She also did great at the funeral and burial. She was very quiet and respectful. :)

She is now 9 1/2 weeks old. Wow!! I will post pictures as soon as I can!

More Pictures . . .

I have more pictures to share . . . 

This is from a month ago.  Sterling came up to visit all the way from Uvalde with her 2 beautiful girls!  Nixon and Darin are both precious.  Nixon is especially cute.  She kept asking to kiss the little baby.  :)

Here's Audrey with Grandpa last Friday.  She loves to see him!

Audrey has so many friends already!  Paige was so cute with her.  "Can I kiss Baby Audrey?  Please Mommy, let me hold her now!"  Paige is just too cute and I can't wait until Audrey is at that age.

This is from last weekend when Audrey had her first overnight stay with Grammy.  She had SO much fun.  We were a little nervous, but she slept and ate great.  James and I had a nice time just relaxing and spending time with each other as well as having some time to ourselves.  It was wonderful!  

8 Weeks Old

I can't believe she's 8 weeks old!  We have her 2 month appointment next week and I just can't believe she's that old.  She's really growing up!  This morning Audrey did her tummy time for 6 minutes!!  And then she actually grabbed one of the rings on the mat.  She is so strong!!!  She is still sleeping WONDERFULLY.  8-9 hours each night.  Of course now that I said that, I'm sure I jinxed it!  The first night Audrey slept for 9 hours (last Fri) James woke up every hour after 4 to check on her.  I slept right through, I knew she'd be fine!  ;)

7 Weeks Old . . .and lots of pictures!

Today Audrey is 7 weeks old! And I put the "big Canton bow" on her just for you Michelle! It actually looks pretty cute and I think I'm going to buy some more bows tomorrow. :)

Audrey is smiling all of the time. I have been trying SO HARD to get it on camera, but can't! But I did get some cute shots today . . .

The Starwalts stopped by for a visit today. Let's forget about Audrey for a minute and just focus on how tall and old little Scotty is!!! I remember when he was Audrey's size!

And here's James giving Audrey her nighttime bottle last night. She is doing so good sleeping in her room!

Such a big girl!

We decided to try Audrey is the Bumbo chair today and she loved it!! She loves just sitting and looking around the room. Her neck is getting really strong and she is able to hold it up for much longer now. Pretty soon she'll be sitting up on her own!

We also moved her into her room to sleep now. She has been sleeping so well that James thought it was time. I was a *little* nervous and actually spent Friday night on the floor in her room. :) But she did so well that I'm really comfortable with it now and can sleep peacefully in my own bed!

And . . . the big news is that she is going to have a sleepover at Grammy's house this Saturday!! James and I are so excited. We don't know what we're going to do with ourselves! I know we're going to miss our little Auds like crazy, but she's going to have tons of fun with Grammy.

6 Weeks

Wow! Audrey is finally 6 weeks old. It's such a milestone. She is really growing up! In the past week Audrey has become so independent. In the first few weeks she was only happy when being held. Now she LOVES her little activity mat and spends at least 30 minutes at a time hitting the rattles and staring at the lights. She also likes her swing again and likes to lay in it for a few minutes at a time. And the BEST part is that she is now sleeping consistently at night for 6-7 hours at a time!!! This is huge. The first time this happened James kept getting up to check on her. Now we just count our blessings and sleep! :)

Audrey also started smiling at us this past week. She can recognize us and smiles and coos at us. It's the best feeling in the whole world. We are so lucky to have our beautiful Audrey.
