4 months old!

What a difference a year makes! It was exactly this time last year we found out we were pregnant. I'll never forget that day- it was the beginning of the best year of my life. From a family of 2 to a family of 3:


We can't get enough of our sweet girl! See what she has to put up with?!?

Nothing is better than seeing her smile...sometimes I can't believe the cuteness we created! She is beyond what I had ever hoped for!!





It has been a crazy year with big changes. A year ago I dreamed of having a precious little baby and today it's a reality. We love you sweet Audrey Cate!

Bath Time

Audrey loves her bath! She gets one every night as part of her bedtime routine. Must be nice to be a baby :)

Sleeping Beauty

So ever since last weekend we've been letting Audrey sleep in her bouncer all night. She goes to bed after her bath and sleeps ALL NIGHT! It's been magical. Everyone is much happier getting more sleep. Her new thing is turning to her side while in the bouncer:












Sometimes she doesn't even wait until she's in her bouncer before she's fast asleep!

Hoppy Easter!

We had a nice quiet Easter at home. The Easter Bunny brought Audrey a basket filled with candy, books, bunny ears, and a bunny rattle :) Next Easter we'll get to do some really fun stuff like dye eggs and go on an egg hunt! This year we settled for being cute:


Visiting the Easter Bunny (she doesn't know what to think!)


Bunny ears!


Hanging with Mr. Bunny (this was mine as a kid!)





For me?!




So happy!


Easter ROCKS!!


"I'll just sit here and look cute, k?"




We're hoping that Easter brings us another niece...my SIL Brandy was admitted early this morning after her water broke. We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of Miss Nina Sophia!

Audrey- 107, Parents- 1

I can't believe I'm finally typing this...she STTN!!! From 9 pm- 6am. She had a bottle around 6:30 after we ate dinner. We played, she had her bath, then I put her in the bouncy chair in our bedroom so I could watch LOST. Well, we both fell asleep. The next thing I knew it was 10:00! I got up and made her a bottle b/c I was sure she's be up any minute. I went back to sleep and kept waking up every 30 minutes or so to check her...next thing I knew it was 6:00!! I couldn't believe it, but I was thrilled. We had happy fun time when she woke up...I kept telling her how proud I was of her and that I'd buy her a pony if she would do it every night (sorry, Chris!) And of course what kind of mom would I be if I didn't document this momentous occasion??


"Whoa! Is it really 6 am already?"


"I'm so proud of myself!"


"Eh, it was nothing!"



I'm bummed that she didn't sleep in her crib, but at least we know that she can sleep more than 4 hours straight. If only I could turn that crib into one big vibrating bouncy chair...

3 month photo shoot


This one is my favorite...gotta love the side-eye!


Pretty smile!

Close up of the cuties!

Audrey and cousin Bella had their pictures taken a couple of weeks ago at JCP. The cuteness is unreal! We had a hard time choosing our favorites so my mother in law bought practically all of them, lol. I am so in love with Audrey's sweet chubby face...I could look at it all day! Tomorrow we go to see the Easter Bunny, hoooray!

Little Miss Fancy

My friend Shannon makes these adorable headbands. I've had lots of people ask about them! Her business is called Little Miss Fancy and her website is here:

Little Miss Fancy

She has lots of cute designs on her site. I already have lots, but I'll be ordering more soon. I just love the way Audrey looks in them!


Yummy fingers!

Is it the weekend yet?



How perfect is she?! I love this picture. Aunt Sarah sent it to me while I was at work today. I just love getting these picture texts...next best thing to being there!

I'll be so happy when today is over! It's been a busy week with report cards and parent conferences. I feel like I've missed out on spending time with Audrey. Next week is our last before Spring Break and we're all ready for it. We all have cabin fever!
