I am lucky to get to watch Caroline twice a week. She is so cute and it is so much fun to watch her and Audrey interact. The first week was a little tough b/c Audrey was all "Hey, who is this other person that my mommy is feeding?" Followed by some fussing. But now she is used to having Caroline over and we have so much fun!

This morning Joey dropped Caroline off and I noticed she was wearing an outfit that Audrey had too! So of course, I had to take some pictures!

Okay, we're both super cute. We know!
Audrey got a little upset over the attention being taken away from her. She tried to knock Caroline out of her way!
Friends again. This picture is just so sweet. Friends forever!

Can't catch me, I'm Audrey!

WOW! In a matter of 4 days, Audrey has learned how to crawl. I mean really crawl. Last week she propelled herself around her room and it was so cute. Now she can and will crawl wherever she wants to go. I was sitting in the computer room this afternoon for 5 minutes. I saw Miss Audrey crawl past me and laugh. She then turned and crawled into the kitchen to find the wine stash. (She's my daughter alright!)

Aren't I too funny?

Okay, you're boring me. On to bigger and better things.

I'm back!!! Look how cute I am!!! :)

Audrey's Top Ten

I'm stealing this idea from Carolyn because it's an easy way to list a few new things Audrey has been up to!

1. I can sit up on my own!!! I can sit up from laying on my belly and from my back. It's especially fun to sit up in my crib and move the baby monitor camera away from the crib so Mommy and Daddy can't spy on me anymore! Well, it was fun until Daddy lowered my crib!

2. I can CRAWL! Yes people, I am an official mover and shaker. I can crawl from my toys on one side of the room all the way to my changing table on the other side of the room and pull out all of my diapers in 10 seconds flat! Yesterday I crawled from my play mat in the living room over to the tv stand and pulled out all of the dvd's while Mommy left the room for 2 minutes. Who knows what I'll get into next!

3. I am eating all sorts of new foods. I had a real banana the other day and tonight I'm going to try turkey!

4. I love to express myself through yelling. I made Mommy and Daddy and all the other people in the restaurant laugh hysterically today while I was telling them how excited I was to sit in a highchair. So many nice ladies came up to smile at me. :)

5. I've been wearing my helmet for 4 weeks now and have just a few weeks left!!

6. I have a new friend, Caroline, who comes over at least twice a week to play while Mommy watches her. She is 8 weeks old and super cute.

7. I also get to go on walks with my Aunt Heather and friend Bridgette a lot. It's so fun!

8. My Daddy makes me laugh we he makes funny faces at me.

9. My Mommy makes me laugh when she sticks her tongue out at me.

10. Next Saturday my Daddy and I will share a birthday. I'll be 7 months and he's turning 30. I can't believe he's so OLD!! I can't wait for his birthday party. Happy Early Birthday Daddy!

Blinged Out Baby

So . . . 3 weeks later we have finally finished decorating Audrey's band. Originally James wanted to paint it, but the paint kept coming off, I couldn't find stickers I liked, etc. FINALLY I went back to Michael's today and found some cute stickers that I really like. They are so sparkly and cute! Here's Miss Audrey showing off her cutey little helmet.

And the funny helmet comment of the week is: We were at Tom Thumb, checking out. The teenage bagger looked at Auds and then turned to me and said, "Wow Mom, you really are keeping her head safe. That's some sweet protective headgear!"
I just laughed. Then he said, "No really, you are the most protective mom I've ever seen of her baby's head!"
So I had to explain that no, I'm not overprotective. My baby just has a flat head that needs to be evened out! ;)

Too Fun!

We've been so busy this past week! We started the week on Tuesday going over to my friend Sterling's parents' house to celebrate Daren's 1st Birthday. Got that? :) Sterling is one of my closest friends, we've been friends since 5th grade! She lives with her husband Chris, two daughters Nixon and Daren, in Uvalde, TX. Which is 6 HOURS AWAY! Luckily her parents still live in P-town, so we get to see them when they come in town. Anywho, Daren had her 1st birthday this past week. It was a lot of fun. And also really nostalgic for me because the last time we got the girls together Daren was 6 months old and Audrey was just a few weeks old. It's amazing how time flies!

Nixon is the sweetest girl and she was just so precious with Audrey. Here she is trying to give her the balloon.
Audrey's all "I got it, now what's going on over here . . ." :)

Daren and Audrey playing . . .

And here's one of Audrey sleeping tonight. This is her new favorite position. Butt up, legs in, let's sleep!
