Time to buy a toothbrush!!

I can't believe it!! Audrey's first tooth has broken through. I just knew it was going to happen soon. She's been chewing on everything, sleeping extra long, and fussy/clingy right before her naps. Teething tablets have been our best friend. We've been feeling and looking everyday for the past couple weeks. I *thought* her gums looked red and swollen on Sunday. I just put her down for her nap and she was fussing so I gave her some tablets. I went to massage her bottom gums while they dissolved and totally felt a bud!! I grabbed her out of the crib, turned on the lights and pried open her mouth. I don't know why I'm so excited....I guess I've really been looking forward to this moment!!

My sweet, sweet baby is getting so big. We were at our friend's house on Sunday and they have a gorgeous little girl who is about 20 months. Audrey got to play with some of her big girl toys. Among them was a stand up play table, an indoor riding toy, an outdoor pull car, and a bouncing/rocking horse. She loved ALL of them. Wow. Audrey needs big girl toys now. So I bought her the Laugh 'n Learn play table and a 3-in-1 riding toy. That should keep her satisfied for now, and hopefully for a couple more months!

Oh, and she loves these stacking rings. She takes one off at a time until they're all gone. Or when she gets down to the last two she'll just dump the whole thing over.

She is just so amazing. I am so grateful for every moment I get to spend with her!
